Conor McGregor predicted Jose Aldo would withdraw from UFC 189 earlier back in 2014. Aldo reportedly injured his ribs in a training session, and said if they were broken that he wouldn’t fight as scheduled on July 11th. As it turns out, Jose Aldo only has a bone bruise and a cartilage injury. The fight is still on, and McGregor’s response on twitter was classic:
It turned out he just had a little period pain.

Them’s fighting words. Oh, and if for some reason Notorious decides to take down the tweet (he won’t), I managed to get a screen grab.
Conor McGregor is one of the biggest rising stars in MMA. Aldo has been one of the most dominant champions in the UFC over the past 5 years. I can’t wait to see these guys brawl.
