Jose Aldo's corner were completely taken aback by the manner of their fighter's defeat at the hands of the new UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor.

One camera captured the moment that one of Aldo's team realised that the Brazilian was heading for the canvas.

They were clearly upset but that turned to anger when McGregor climbed onto the octagon cage in front of the Aldo camp.

"Winners focus on winning, losers focus on winners and that the way his camp have viewed me," McGregor said in his post-fight press conference.
