Now Aldo was in his city and not Rio De Janeiro where they have previously met. Conor is keen to take centre stage and show Jose that things are different in Dublin.

Conor McGregor Grabs Jose Aldo’s UFC Belt

With their back and forth rhetoric getting more and more aggressive as the show continues.

It’s then at one point when White turns his back that McGregor lunges for Aldo’s UFC title belt. Holding it aloft over his head while screaming that he is the king of Dublin and “what are you gonna do …” Aldo seems powerless in a setting that was created for McGregor to shine. Shine on you crazy diamond Conor at UFC 189 …
