Jose Aldo’s trainer has said that the UFC Featherweight Champion will “destroy” Conor McGregor at UFC 194 this weekend.

Trainer Andre Perderneiras said “[Aldo] is more focused for this fight that he has been in the past. McGregor talks a lot, so the desire to beat up his opponent is stronger than usual.”

He added that Aldo “is ready to do what he always does, fight and destroy a s*** talker”.

Aldo was seen training in Brazil as part of the UFC embedded series being released ahead of the Saturday’s event.

Another one of Aldo’s training partners, Leonardo Santos, said McGregor’s “lack of respect” has motivated the Brazilian ahead of their bout.

Aldo himself labelled the Notorious as “a clown” and also said “My victory will be [McGregor’s] worst punishment”.
