'He drinks a lot. F*** yeah!': Jose Aldo reveals Conor McGregor hilariously called his private jet 'completely drunk' to 'talk s***' to the UFC fighter during the build up to their iconic 2015 fight

Jose Aldo has revealed that Conor McGregor used to drunk call his private jetThe Irish fighter would call the Brazilian to trash talk him before their 2015 fightAldo admitted McGregor was a 'good person' despite their previous bad blood

Jose Aldo has revealed that Conor McGregor once drunk called his private jet to ‘talk s***’ to him during the run up to their iconic fight in 2015.

The Brazilian and the Irishman shared what was one of the most bitter rivalries in UFC history, which was eventually came to a head after a long-running build up that saw the pair travel the world to promote the fight.

The bout was due to be held in July 2015 before being postponed by five months after Aldo had to pull out with a rib injury, further intensifying the bad blood between them.

But the pair eventually met in December in a dramatic fight that ended after just 13 seconds.

McGregor landed a brutal left hook on his opponent, knocking Aldo out to end his five-year reign as the UFC featherweight champion.

The feud was intensified by the delayed run-up to the fight, with the pair visiting five countries across 12 days promoting the event.

McGregor, who is one of the best trash talkers in the sport, even stole Aldo’s featherweight belt at a promotional event in Ireland and declared himself the ‘King of Dublin’.

But it seems that wasn’t the only bit of taunting he did, with the Brazilian admitting on the Connect Cast Podcast that Notorious used to hilariously call Aldo when he was drunk to trash talk him.

‘It was funny, because the guy [McGregor] drinks a lot,’ he said.

‘He drinks a lot. F*** yeah! He probably even likes to drink gasoline.

‘Bro, he’d call our private jet completely drunk, just taking shit. F*** it was funny, he’s a good person because he does understand the other side. He understands the other person. But he’s a guy with a vision.’

Even before the fight it was clear there was deep animosity between the pair, who refused to touch gloves and went straight into combat.

But it seems the duo have long since settled their rivalries, with McGregor even calling the Brazilian ‘a real legend’ on Twitter.

Aldo also paid homage to the former UFC champion, recalling the the brutal left hook that sent him to the floor during their long anticipated meeting at UFC 194.

Jose Aldo is a real legend.

‘It was his merit,’ Aldo said. ‘I was going in, like it or not he [McGregor] has more reach than me, he had thrown a 1-2 already that I dodged and answered very quickly and he got spooked.

‘And I said, “Now it’s time to go in, Mike Tyson style brother”. When I went in, straight away, everything was spinning.’

The former featherweight champion has since fought 12 times, winning six of those bouts, before retiring in September with a fight record of 31-8-0, following a loss to Merab Dvalishvili.
