McGregor exact in his prediction for the Aldo fight
Before McGregor’s title fight with Jose Aldo he gave an interview with Robin Black and was unbelievably accurate when he shared his opinion of how the fight would go down.
“I felt when we stared down, I felt his right hand was twitching a little bit, that was a subtle tell for me. He is ready to unload that right hand, but I feel that could be a down fall for him. If he unloads that right hand I will not be there.
“one hundred percent, I will analyze reactions in there. If I faint and he reacts some way I will give him that reaction to set him up for something else. I will create traps and dead space inside that octagon, all over the place and I will walk him into it like a zombie. That is what I plan to do with Jose. I plan to set him up, trap him, lead him into dead space, lead him where he feels he is safe, but all of a sudden it’s a trap and he is in big danger.”
At the post-fight press conference McGregor simply said, “If you can see it here and you have the courage to speak it, it will happen.”
