Conor McGregor’s trash talking continues two days ahead of UFC 194 where he’ll face Jose Aldo, who was more reserved and silent during the final press conference for the featherweight fight.

"I feel he feels like he's handcuffed. He's handcuffed and forced into this. He doesn't want to be here, he's forced. I feel the man is forced to do it. So that's what I feel,” a confident McGregor said during the latest press conference for the Dec. 12 fight via UFC’s official website. “I feel he's confused. He doesn't know where he is, he doesn't know what's going on. He's just kind of waiting for it to be over. That's what I see when I looked at him yesterday."

The 29-year-old Aldo, who is from Manaus, Brazil, will be fighting for the first time since Oct. 25, 2014 at UFC 179 when he won against Chad Mendes via a five-round unanimous decision. Aldo successfully defended his UFC featherweight belt at that time and will defend the same title against McGregor.

“I just have to go in there and do my job, that's it,” Aldo simply stated in the same press conference, preferring to not indulge McGregor in trash talk and let his skills in the Octagon do the talking.

The 27-year-old McGregor, who is from Dublin, Ireland, is the UFC interim featherweight champion and was scheduled to fight Aldo at UFC 189 last July, but Aldo pulled out of the fight because of a rib injury. The replacement fighter was Mendes, who was defeated by the Irishman via a second round technical knockout (TKO). McGregor has been impressive in the last four bouts, winning all of his matches since 2014 via TKO.

The odds slightly favour the challenger McGregor, who enters the fight as 17-to-20 favourites while Aldo is priced at 53-to-50 as the underdog.
