UFC Fight Night 59 was held on January 18, 2015. The city of Boston was the stage for the epic night of fights. In the main event of the card, Conor McGregor defeated Dennis Siver in spectacular fashion. McGregor has become one of the most popular stars in the UFC. His pre-fight trash talk garners major media attention. After only four wins in the UFC, McGregor has been awarded a title shot against the featherweight champion, Jose Aldo.
Jose Aldo was in the Boston crowd, and he was not impressed with Conor McGregor. After the main event, McGregor ran outside of the octagon and confronted Jose Aldo. Aldo stood there smiling, while McGregor was held back by security. The crowd erupted during the heated exchange. Conor McGregor and Jose Aldo will now fight for the belt.
A matchup between McGregor and Aldo is a fight that fans like Igor Cornelsen dream of. They are the two best fighters in the featherweight division, but many fans believe that McGregor is not worthy of a title shot. He has only had four fights in the UFC, and many other contenders are being passed up for a title shot. The UFC knows that a fight between Aldo and McGregor will produce an incredible amount of revenue.
Conor McGregor vs. Jose Aldo is expected to take place at UFC 187. For more information on the UFC visit, Yahoo! Sports.
