The odds for the highly anticipated Conor McGregor vs Jose Aldo fight, which was originally slated to take place at UFC 189 before Aldo was forced to pull out due to a rib injury, have now been released.

Thanks to McGregor's impressive 2nd round KO performance against former #1 contender Chad Mendes, Jose Aldo is an even bigger underdog to beat Conor McGregor. Here are the current betting odds:

Conor McGregor, -175
Jose Aldo, +145

These odds mean that you would need to wager $175 on Conor McGregor in order to have a chance of winning $100 back, while a successful $100 bet on Jose Aldo would yield a total profit of $145.

The proposed McGregor/Aldo tilt, which would unite the Featherweight and interim Featherweight titles, is expected to take place in December or January. People are already saying that the fight could top the numbers posted by UFC 100: Lesnar vs Mir, which ended up doing approximately 1.6 million PPV buys.

There are rumors that McGregor/Aldo could be taking place in Cowboy Stadium in Dallas, Texas, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet.

Conor McGregor and Jose Aldo were originally supposed to clash at UFC 189 until Aldo was forced to pull out due to a rib injury. Chad Mendes took his place, and Conor McGregor ended up winning the interim title.

According to reports, Aldo is just a few weeks away from resuming training. Conor McGregor, on the other hand, is recovering from a knee injury and is slated to coach the next season of the Ultimate Fighter opposite of Urijah Faber.

The Aldo/McGregor fight, thanks to a worldwide tour and an expensive advertising campaign, was already slated to be one of the biggest fights in the history of the UFC. Thanks to the events of the past month, however, the fight has gotten even bigger.
