VIDEO: Overwhelmed Conor McGregor Shrugs Off Jose Aldo… ‘a Distant Memory’

After defeating Chad Mendes for the interim featherweight title at UFC 189 on Saturday night, an overwhelmed Conor McGregor put featherweight champion Jose Aldo in his rearview mirror, calling him “a distant memory.”

How long that will last remains to be seen, as UFC president Dana White believes that a fight between McGregor and Aldo would now be even bigger than it would have been at UFC 189, had Aldo not dropped out due to an injury.

For now, however, McGregor is reveling in his victory, and moving on to a coaching stint opposite Urijah Faber on The Ultimate Fighter.
