Jose Aldo is grumpy. Maybe it’s because reporters are asking him about his pay relative to Conor McGregor, or because Conor has been acting like a petulant instigator for a world tour promoting their fight that everyone will forget about after this footage is released until fight week (or a two weeks out). It’s a rough life for the champ, who has been nothing but awesome for the entirety of his career. Why is Jose Aldo pooped on? Why don’t people give him credit?

He pulled my jacket, so I immediately stood up. Dana turned, separated us and apologized. There was no slap. He pulled my jacket. That’s what happened. It looks like Dana said that he slapped me, but he didn’t even see it.”
