Jose Aldo didn't care for Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz and didn't even watch the fight live, on Saturday night. According to the former UFC featherweight champion, he already knew how the bout was going to end, so he decided to watch something else: porn.

"I watch Sexy Hot (a Brazilian porn channel) at night." Aldo told Sportv on television. "It's not a problem, I really watch it. I already knew that was going to happen. I was just waiting for it. When I knew it happened, I posted on Instagram right away. I knew it was going to happen.  I watched the fight later. I said a while ago he would have nothing by the end of the year. Not even his belt."

As for his title fight, Aldo tried to make a case for himself over another potential contender, Frankie Edgar.

"How are they going to give it to Frankie Edgar? Edgar is always doing rematches. If you look at his career, he fought one guy three times, then another one twice and another one twice, again. I don't see how that can put him ahead of me.  Especially since I have been a dominant champion for years.  Before losing to McGregor, I was the only featherweight champion there ever was.  Frankie is a good fighter, I respect him, but he needs to wait for his turn. After I beat McGregor, he can fight me again."

Jose Aldo has been away from the Octagon ever since being knocked out b Conor McGregor at UFC 194, last December.
