McGregor worried about Aldo no-show


UFC interim featherweight champion Conor McGregor is confident ahead of his bout with Jose Aldo, but is unsure if the Brazilian will turn up.

The pair are scheduled to meet at UFC 194 in Las Vegas on December 12 in a unification bout at what is being tipped as the biggest fight card of the year.

McGregor, 27, tried to stage the fight in July, only for Aldo to withdraw due to a fractured rib.

The Irishman is concerned about a repeat, but said he was ready to take on the 29-year-old Aldo.

"Training is going really good. I feel good, I feel sharp, I feel fit, I feel fast," McGregor told Omnisport.

"I would have whooped him [in July]."

McGregor added: "History shows that he doesn't show, so I hope he does, that's all I say."

McGregor said he planned to move up to the lightweight weight class and consider moving between the two.

"I'll carry on to the lightweight division and take that division over and then, maybe if a featherweight can climb up and entice me back down then I'll take him out again," he said.

"Who knows where I'm going? I'll just continue to fight. I like to stay busy and stay active. I do not like to be inactive."
