Jose Aldo's manager Ed Soares recently said that his dream match-up for the 24-year-old phenom would be a showdown against UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar.
"To be honest with you, if you were to say, What would be your dream fight for Aldo? I think a dream fight for him, which I think would just be a fight that everyone would love to see, would be Frankie Edgar vs. Jose Aldo. That fight to me is the fight that everybody would want to see simply just because, not to disrespect anybody at the 155-pound division to think that Jose has the right to go up there without fighting in it, I just think that, as their styles, the way they match up, it would be one of the greatest fights of all-time, I think. It has the potential to be, just because of their styles."
"You know what he always says to me? I say, 'What do you want to do?' He says, 'That's not my job.' My job is to go in there and perform inside the ring. That's your guys' job."
"He's a breath of fresh air, man. He's so refreshing. As a client, he's just very great."
"I think Anderson is still the No. 1 guy in the world. Not to say that Jose won't be there at some point, but right now, I mean, c'mon, Anderson has got 12 consecutive wins in the UFC. He's phenomenal, but the level of competition that Anderson has faced in comparison to the level of competition that Jose has faced, not saying that Jose can't be the greatest pound-for-pound fighter at some point, but right now, Anderson still is."
