Jose Aldo turns down bout against McGregor

<p>According to Jose Aldo&rsquo;s coach, Andre Pederneiras, Aldo was offered a rematch against Conor McGregor <a href="http://www.mmafighting.com/2016/2/23/11099670/coach-jose-aldo-not-in-shape-turned-down-offer-to-replace-rafael-dos">but turned it down.</a></p> <p>Rafael Dos Anjos, who was expected to face McGregor in the main event of UFC 196, <a href="http://roughcopy.com/news/rafael-dos-anjos-injured-bout-mcgregor">was forced to pull out of the bout after suffering a broken foot</a>. The UFC has not yet announced who McGregor will face instead, but Jose Aldo can be crossed off the list of potential opponents.</p> <p>With only twelve days left until UFC 196, Pederneiras said that Aldo could not accept the fight due to the lack of time to prepare. <a href="http://sportv.globo.com/site/combate/noticia/2016/02/sem-tempo-habil-equipe-de-jose-aldo-descarta-substituir-dos-anjos.html">Pederneiras spoke to Combate</a> about the issue.</p> <p>&ldquo;Dana called me, telling what happened and asking if Aldo was in shape to fight,&quot; Pederneiras said. &quot;I said he wasn&rsquo;t and that there wasn&rsquo;t enough time, and unfortunately he wouldn&rsquo;t be able to fight next week.&rdquo;</p> <p>This comment received a lot of backlash by fans since Aldo made <a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/BBDnwMsDTpF/?taken-by=josealdojunioroficial">an Instagram post</a> a few weeks earlier saying that he would only accept a fight that was either for a title or a rematch against McGregor.</p> <p>&ldquo;I will not accept any other fight than a title shot,&rdquo; the post read. &ldquo;My only exception would be fighting The Notorious, at any time, anywhere.&rdquo;</p>
