    On the night of UFC 189, when Conor McGregor was fighting Chad Mendes for the UFC interim championship in Las Vegas, Jose Aldo was at a friend's house.

    He was not watching the fight.

    Instead, Aldo was watching his favorite soccer club play
    . Thousands of miles away, in the heat of the Las Vegas desert, a major bout was unfolding that would determine a potentially gigantic payday for the UFC featherweight champion, and he didn't care. He was so confident that McGregor would win that he did not feel the need to watch.

    "I don't care about what he's doing," Aldo said with a laugh. "But I know if Chad had been able to train for the fight, it would be totally different."

    After the bout concluded, after McGregor knocked out Mendes to capture the interim version of Aldo's title, he began receiving calls from friends who had seen the fight.

    "They told me, 'You're going to kill this guy for sure,'" Aldo said.

    Aldo will eventually watch the bout as part of his training. Today, he is in Las Vegas to meet the media and film promotional spots for his UFC 194 bout against McGregor.

    It is the most anticipated fight of the year. Prior to the media session, UFC public relations staffers relayed an embargo to media in attendance, saying that even Aldo's presence here must be kept secret until Wednesday at 3 p.m.

    It seems as though someone did not want McGregor to know Aldo was there, perhaps because being confronted with such a surprise would generate an interesting and honest reaction from the Irish superstar and, if everything goes according to plan, another of the intense interactions the two have become known for.

    It has been a whirlwind few months for the champion, beginning first with the broken rib that knocked him out of the UFC 189 bout in the first place.

    The injury kicked off a war of words between Aldo and UFC president Dana White. Aldo's camp said the rib was broken; White

    tbh you'd have to not watch the interview to think he wasn't joking. He was laughing with the reports as he was talking about it.

    Yeah Conor drops 30lbs for sure. I hear he does it in 1 hour, and is 200lbs on fight night.

    Apparently Aldo is the Joker? Since everything he says is just a joke.

    Anyone who actually watched that interview with Aldo about the IV ban knew he was joking. He was smiling and laughing the whole time.

    No I didn't. I said apparently Aldo is the Joker. I never said Aldo is calling himself a Joker. Dede is calling Aldo a Joker, please follow along. If I am a Village Idiot and you are so far below me you can't comprehend very simple concepts I feel bad for you.
