The most anticipated UFC fight of the year and one of the most anticipated fights in MMA history, will take place on December 12th, at 5 p.m., with reigning champion Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor meeting for a highly publicized featherweight championship bout. The winner of this match will be crowned undisputed champion.
The sport is now more popular than ever before, thanks to its inclusion as an Olympic sport starting at the 2020 games in Tokyo, Japan. In fact, there are now four times as many registered fighters as there were 20 years ago. And that means that it’s never been a better time to get started if you want to learn how to compete professionally or just want a new way to stay fit and have fun.
The secondary market has been on a rampage with this event. For example, 3% of the total profits on all tickets sold were made by resellers and ticket brokers on StubHub. Aldo is the underdog in this fight. McGregor will win by knockout in round three or four.
The importance of this match-up for both fighters
This fight is important for both Aldo and McGregor. In particular, the “Notorious” Conor McGregor is a stud with what he does in the octagon. McGregor has been very vocal about his future plans, which include going down in what he hopes to be a historic legacy with a victory over a veteran like Jose Aldo. Aldo is fully aware of what McGregor can do – and what he expects from him. He will not be taking the fight lightly.
This match-up will have major implications for either fighter’s legacy – it would be hard for either one to come back from a loss at this point in their respective careers. If Aldo wins, he would maintain his undefeated record and become the first person to ever defend the UFC Championship ten times (he has currently defended it 7 times). If McGregor wins, he will become the first fighter to be a champion in two divisions simultaneously.
What’s next for Conor McGregor after UFC 194
McGregor will now have to face the winner of the Benson Henderson, Anthony Pettis rematch which is what happens when two champions battle. McGregor also has what he says he’ll be his final boxing match with Mayweather in September, giving him a chance for what he wants – living as both a UFC champion and a boxing champion.
McGregor’s legacy is what drives him more than anything else; it’s always been about surpassing Chad Mendes for what many thought was an impossible task back then of becoming not only an unprecedented double champ but an 8-time champ (he currently has 7).
