Jose Aldo compares McGregor loss to Halley’s Comet: Happens only ‘once every 100 years’

NEW YORK CITY – Jose Aldo’s nearly 10-year winning streak came to an abrupt end in December when Conor McGregor knocked him out in 13 seconds and claimed the Brazilian’s UFC featherweight title. Four months later, “Scarface” still maintains the outcome was a fluke.

Once perfect punch to the chin by McGregor (19-3 MMA, 7-1 UFC) at UFC 194 robbed Aldo (25-2 MMA, 7-1 UFC) of his status as the only 145-pound champion in UFC history. A year of buildup lead in to the heated contest, but then it ended in the blink of an eye.

Questions now surround Aldo and how he’ll rebound from the first knockout loss of his career and the end of his 18-fight winning streak. The Brazilian faces Frankie Edgar (20-4-1 MMA, 14-4-1 UFC) in an interim featherweight title showdown at UFC 200, and he said he’s ready to prove why it was a fluke.

“That was a rare occurrence; it’s like a Comet Halley passing – it only happens once every 100 years,” Aldo told reporters through an interpreter at today’s UFC 200 press conference in New York City. “You guys can rest assure I’m very hungry just like Frankie is. We’re going to give you guys the best fight of the night.”

UFC 200 takes place July 9 at the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
