Video: Jose Aldo beats Chad Mendes, calls Conor McGregor 'a joker'
Aldo is still the featherweight champion of the world.
After a unanimous win over Chad Mendes for his 7th UFC title defence, Jose Aldo paid tribute to his rival before he was asked who he wants to fight next.
"I think I'll face whoever they put in front of me. I'm here as a champion. I think the court is complete here. I'm the king, Chad is the prince and now we have a joker," said Aldo.
Who ever could he mean?
McGregor, for his part, responded in the only way he knows how...
In consummate style.
Toasting whiskey to a phenomenal contest. Respect and congrats to both competitors. Rest up well. The King is coming. pic.twitter.com/IY2gc2tKtZ
