Easily the UFC’s most marketable superstar since GSP, Conor McGregor looks to finally secure a title belt from Jose Aldo in a fight that has been simmering for quite some time. At UFC 194, we will find out if Conor McGregor is the real deal or if he will suffer a Ronda Rousey style defeat.

Sports Interaction opened McGregor as the (-160) favourite and early betting support pushed that line to (-190). However, a recent surge of money on the underdog Jose Aldo has caused the line to fall to (-140).

This fight has been a long time in the making, and was originally scheduled for UFC 189. But, Aldo pulled out citing a rib injury and was replaced by Chad Mendes. McGregor went on to beat Mendes by second round TKO, while Aldo received criticism from fans and UFC brass alike.

Cutting weight has always been an issue for Jose Aldo, and there will always be worries about his weight cut heading into fight week. Sports Interaction even have (+600) odds on the board that Aldo will pull out of this fight!

McGregor vs Aldo: Keys to the Fight

  1. The main flaw in Conor McGregor’s game is his takedown defense and all around ground game. If the fight goes to the mat it could become a problem for McGregor.
  2. Conor McGregor has never been 5 rounds and there are question marks surrounding his gas tank.
  3. Jose Aldo will be coming off a year layoff and figures to experience some ‘ring rust’.
  4. Jose Aldo has already pulled out of this fight with an injury, and there is no way he can be at 100%.
  5. What effect the weight cut will have on Jose Aldo.

Will Jose Aldo Retire After Fight?

Sports Interaction has some interested prop bets for this fight, including ‘Will Jose Aldo Retire After the Fight’ at (+250) odds. Although Jose is only 29 years old, he has been fighting for over 15 years professionally and his body is much older than than his age would suggest. Injuries have caused Aldo to fight sporadically throughout his title reign, and him retiring after this fight is not inconceivable.
