'It's always the same bulls**t': Jose Aldo looks seriously fed up by face time with Conor McGregor

The toll of the UFC 189 publicity tour is beginning to show.

THE UFC HAVE us on tenter hooks this week with the drip feed of ‘Embedded’ behind-the-scenes clips to promote UFC 189.


The tour’s toll is beginning to show a toll on both Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor, the Dubliner opening the video by crawling into bed with words we can all relate to:

“I aaam bolloooxxxed.”

The camera crew catch up with Aldo in training the following morning in the gym, getting some much needed venting out before another round of multi-lingual verbal sparring.

That part of the job appears to be taking more out of Aldo than the Dubliner these days, and the Brazilian looks weary as he speaks on the phone with his manager.

“He pretends he’s gonna touch me, but it’s always the same bullshit.”

Andre Pederneiras, speaking from a safe distance, then appears to volunteer Aldo into a riot if the Notorious ever actually lays a finger on him.

So watch this space, I guess.
