An old video of Conor McGregor talking about Jose Aldo has resurfaced. In the clip, the Irishman talks about Aldo missing his family ahead of their fight.

McGregor gave a chilling warning to the then-featherweight champion. The Irish fighter acknowledged that Aldo is a family man and that he respected the Brazilian for that trait. However, 'The Notorious' stated that his opponent was missing his family heading into their fight, while he had no distractions. The Irishman said:

"Jose is leaving his wife, and his kid, he's missing his baby. And he's missing his wife. I don't have that, I have this. This is all I wanna do. I feel, I feel better at work. You know what I mean? I would rather be here. So, I respect the fact that he is a family man. But I will send him back to his family."

McGregor and Aldo fought at UFC 194 in 2015. 'Notorious' was the interim featherweight champion heading into the contest. Aldo, meanwhile, was a dominant featherweight champion and hadn't lost a fight in a decade.

McGregor shocked the world when he scored a 13-second knockout win against Aldo. Already a star, the iconic win transcended the Irishman to the status of a superstar.

Conor McGregor is back to training MMA

Conor McGregor suffered a gruesome leg break in his last fight against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264. The trilogy contest between the duo had an anti-climactic end as the bout was stopped due to McGregor's injury.

Since then, the Irish fighter has gone through rehabilitation over the last year. His combat training has been a bit slow as he was focused on bulking up. In the last few months, McGregor has posted clips of himself hitting the pads and practicing his kicks.

He is finally back to practicing MMA on a full scale. McGregor recently made a return to SBG Ireland, the gym that has been his home since his professional debut. The below social media post shows him doing a split and practicing his grappling.

Despite his inactivity and recent rocky run, McGregor is hands down the biggest star in the sport of MMA. He is expected to take on another top contender when he is back inside the octagon next.
