During his post-fight media scrum, McGregor was asked if he was willing to now face current interim champion Jose Aldo to unify the belts. As usual, he gave an open-ended response.
"How long was I going back and forth with José? That must have been a two-year build-up," McGregor said. "He pulled out, last-minute. I continued to fight someone else, then we rescheduled a two-year, ‘round the world deal with that boy. And then he stepped in and I beat him in 13 seconds."
"It’s hard for me to get excited about that, especially after his last performance. It was a decision. He didn’t go out and get it like I wanted him to get it. So, I don’t know."
Nothing has been made certain about what is next in line for both Aldo and McGregor, but for the former long-time 145-pound champion, "The Notorious" only has two options to pick from.
