Aldo and McGregor met in a title-unifying match in 2015, and the fight lasted 13 seconds, with Irish superstars devastatingly defeating Aldo.

I’m glad the Sonnens are talking about this rematch, I can’t see myself [fighting him].. I think my next fight will be bantamweight, and then we’ll be closer to fighting for the belt. “
