VIDEO: Conor McGregor’s prediction of Jose Aldo KO was eerily accurate

At it again

“I predict these things!”

That was Conor McGregor’s bold claim at the Go Big event ahead of  UFC 194.

The Notorious has been making predictions about how he will finish his opponents ever since he got into the fight game.

In the lead-up to his title unification bout with Jose Aldo, McGregor was telling anyone who would listen that he would depose the Brazilian in the first round.

He never mentioned ’13 seconds’ but no-one is complaining after his emphatic title win.

After the fight, MMA reporter Robin Black read McGregor the transcript of a ‘Mystic Mac’ prediction he made on Thursday

“I felt when we stared down, I felt his right hand was twitching, which was a subtle tell for me. He’s ready to unload that right hand and I feel that could be a downfall for him. If he lets that right hand go, I will not be there.

“I simply enter the way I enter and that is it. They either over-extend or they shrink away.

“Either way, it is not good for them.

“I will create traps and dead space inside that Octagon. I will walk him into that dead space. All of a sudden he will be in danger.”

McGregor smiled as the words were read out.

He declared, “If you can see if here [points to his head] and if you have the courage here [points to his heart] to speak it, it will happen.

“I see these shots. I see these sequences and I don’t shy away from them.

“A lot of the time, people believe in certain things but they keep them to themselves; they don’t put it out there.

“If you truly believe in it, if you become vocal with it, you are creating that law of attraction and it will become reality.

“I knew he would over-extend and I knew I would catch him. Mystic Mac strikes again.”
