McGregor Predicts When He'll Finish Aldo

CONOR MCGREGOR: JOSE ALDO 'WILL BE DONE WITHIN 4 MINUTES OF THE FIRST ROUND'
By Damon Martin, FOXSports.com
UFC 189 main event fighter Conor McGregor is no stranger to getting into his opponents' heads before he actually faces them in the Octagon, but despite times where he's called fighters out for being on the way out of the sport, in the wrong weight class or simply outmatched, he promises nothing is ever personal.

Take for instance McGregor's statements about featherweight champion Jose Aldo, who he faces on July 11 in what's expected to be the biggest UFC event of the year.

McGregor recently told FOX Sports his prediction for the Aldo fight and why he sees this fight ending inside the first round.

"It will be done within four minutes of the first round. It will be a formality after that," McGregor said. "It's up to how long he wants to stay in there. Like I said, he's on his way out. His body has taken a lot of damage. His brain has rattled many times. His face has been disfigured many times. Now his coach is looking to bounce from the game as well.
