If Jose Aldo Wins UFC 178 McGregors Likely Getting Next Title Shot

Conor McGregor took to his twitter on Thursday night to announce that he would be fighting Diego Sanchez at UFC 180 in November. A few hours laterUFC president Dana White came out and said that McGregor wanted the fight desperately after Sanchez’s original opponent Norman Parke fell off the card due to injury. It turns out that McGregor isn’t actually facing Sanchez.

Theres tons of speculation around whether or not McGregor will get a title fight next after he knocked out Dustin Poirier in the first round of their matchup at UFC 178. Dana White has said if Aldo wins at UFC 179, chances are McGregor’s getting the next crack at the title. Heres exactly what he said on the matter:

“Here’s the thing: If you go down the list, every one of those guys has fought Jose Aldo already,” White told UFC.com. “Conor hasn’t. So who do you line up next for the champ other than Conor? Everybody else has fought him.”
