Aldo: Edgar welcome at FW, so I can send him back to LW

by Luca Gomes | source:

In an interview with Tatame, UFC Featherweight champion Jose Aldo discussed the controversial Henderson vs. Edgar decision, and the possibility of Edgar dropping to 145.

“Like he (Edgar) always does, it was a pretty hard fight. I guess they could’ve granted him the win, but who am I to judge? There’re judges there to do that," said Aldo.

“He said he wants to drop to the featherweight so I’m hoping he does that to end this story. He’s welcome here so that we shut him off and he goes to the lightweight or bantamweight classes."

First, Aldo has to defend his title for the fourth time, against Erick Koch at UFC Rio 3, on October 13th.

People act like Frankie will automatically be champ at 145...? Say what?It's the complete opposite, almost everybody thinks Aldo would destroy Frankie.I myself think it would be competitive but favor Aldo. Most people think Aldo smashes Edgar though. Nobody thinks Edgar being 145 champ is any sort of given. I'm pretty sure Aldo would be the betting favorite too.

He'd get respected more about if he didn't call himself Frankie, and just used Frank

I don't think he's being cocky, probably feels disrespected. Everybody acts like if Edgar goes down he will automatically be champion, like when he's bored with 155 he'll just drop down and be champ at 145.

Aldo would devastate Edgar with leg kicks and then put him away with strikes or a knee. Still would love to watch.
