Conor McGregor Stealing Jose Aldo's UFC Belt Is Still His Most Craziest Stunt Ever
Conor McGregor didn't disappoint when the UFC 189 world press tour hit Dublin, Ireland, as he stole Jose Aldo's UFC belt in his craziest stunt ever.
Then-UFC featherweight champion Aldo and McGregor traveled across the world to promote UFC 189 before arriving in Dublin and the local boy gave the raucous Irish fans quite a treat.
The pair of fighters went back-and-forth, trading insults until the Brazilian declared himself the "King of Dublin" through his translator.
Aldo said: "I arrived here, and I brought the sun. It only rains in this city. You should be at least more appreciative. I am the champion. I am the champion, bitch!"
McGregor reacted by putting his feet up on the table which Aldo mimicked. But the challenger then leaped over to the other side of the table and snatched Aldo's UFC belt.

"You're an a**hole. You're an a**hole. F**king p**sy. Son of a bitch. Son of a bitch," Aldo shouted.
McGregor waved it to the crowd as Aldo attempted to retrieve his title. UFC president Dana White stopped the clash from escalating as security eventually intervened and separated the two fighters.
McGregor hollered: "You're looking at the king."
An explosive end to UFC's unprecedented world tour as Aldo and McGregor fought against each other later than expected after the champion withdrew due to a rib injury.
Chad Mendes subsequently stepped in and suffered a second round loss to McGregor, who captured the interim UFC featherweight strap.
Though Aldo and McGregor met a few months later at UFC 194 when 'The Notorious' stopped him in just 13 seconds to become UFC featherweight champion.
