Jose Aldo won’t be fighting this Saturday night at UFC 189 against Conor McGregor.
Instead, the UFC featherweight champion will see an interim titleholder crowned in Las Vegas, as McGregor takes on Chad Mendes.
Despite previously sharing the Octagon with Mendes – twice no less – the Brazilian is rooting for “Money” to topple his arch-enemy.
The respect is mutual and I'm looking forward to fight u Again, because I know you'll beat the Joker up! U can count on my fans!@chadmendes!

Aldo and Mendes exchanged plenty of words before their second meeting, but after going the distance with one another, they appear to have settled any issues.
