“No, he didn’t get into my mind. I think I got into his mind. I think during our staredown he saw something different in my eyes. I saw fear in his eyes. I know he used to be a fan of mine and watch my fights. I did my research on him and know everything about him.” -- Aldo

“When you sign up to fight me, it’s a whole different ballgame. It just swarms people. They start shrinking in their seat. Their eyes start watering. Their bottom lip starts quivering. They are fighting McGregor now; I feel them crumble every time.” -- McGregor

“Before I came along, he (Jose) was co-main event to the bantamweights. Now, we’re on private jets going all over North America, all over the world. Even top-15 featherweights are headlining cards now. It’s the McGregor division, make no mistake about it. If I leave, and go to the lightweight division, the featherweights go back to the prelims, it’s that simple.” -- McGregor
