Jose Aldo's latest insult to Conor McGregor comes just three weeks before the fighters go head-to-head for the UFC featherweight title.

26-year-old McGregor will face Brazilian born Aldo on July 11, at the MGM in Las Vegas and he hopes to hand Aldo his first loss inside the Octagon in a decade.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White has dubbed the contest as the 'Fight of the Century' and is confident in the drawing power of the battle.

The MMA head honcho is confident of the drawing power of the bout, which he projects will produce more than 1 million pay-per-view (PPV) subscriptions. He said: "They'll do over a million. Conor thinks he's gonna do the biggest number ever, but to be honest and realistic, I think it's gonna do over a million."

Both fighters are taking advantage of all platforms in order to publicly confront each other. As well as the latest promotional video, the Dublin man has taken to Twitter to taunt his opponent, with Aldo firing back a fitting reply.
