McGregor says he’ll knock out Aldo, would “whoop” Jesus — VIDEO

Interim featherweight champion Conor McGregor is making his last media appearances before arriving in Las Vegas for a title unification bout against champion Jose Aldo in the main event of UFC 194 at the MGM Grand on Dec. 12.

In an interview with TMZ that lasted just over a minute, McGregor provided plenty of soundbites.

After picking himself to knock out Aldo in the first round, he was asked how a mixed martial arts fight against Jesus might turn out.

Though the question made him pause and laugh, McGregor couldn’t resist.

“I’d still whoop his ass,” McGregor said with a smile.

Watch the video to see McGregor’s opinion on whether pop stars Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez should rekindle their romance.
