Jose Aldo vs Conor McGregor is only days away….
You will likely be forced to listen to an endless amount of opinion on the UFC 194 main event between Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor this week. Some of it will be educated. Most of it will not. Ironically, but perhaps unsurprisingly, it will probably be the latter that is stated with the most stubborn conviction.
From the taxi driver who is an MMA expert despite having never witnessed a caged bout prior to July 11th, to the acquaintance who admits they haven’t heard of Aldo but is somehow 100% confident of a McGregor victory – you will hear them all.
If you are willing to entertain, even briefly, these random musings, then you should be able to find the time to listen to the expert opinions of perhaps the most esteemed coach in all of MMA.
