Video: McGregor grabs the UFC belt off Aldo…and nearly sparks a riot

Things got heated between Aldo and McGregor...

Ben Kenyon

Just when you thought there couldn’t be any more bad blood between Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor, this happens…

McGregor snatched the UFC world featherweight belt from right under the nose of champion Aldo during the final stage of the UFC 189 tour in Dublin.

Brazilian Aldo reacted furiously as the Irishman waved the belt aloft as UFC president Dana White had to stop the two men clashing at the fan Q&A in McGregor’s home city.

Fans of the Notorious were screaming “Who are you? Who are you” at Aldo throughout the heated exchange.

The two men look ready to get into the Octagon and throw down now. But they will have to wait another four months to see who comes out on top.
