It's a fight between two very explosive guys," Aldo said through an interpreter on Tuesday. "Anything can go."

But there's another reason why Aldo is eager for the pseudo-superfight on Feb. 2 in Las Vegas. As Aldo explained to Los Angeles-area reporters at a media luncheon, a fight against the man who reigned over the lightweight division for two years is a good gauge as to whether the longtime featherweight champ is ready for a jump up to 155 pounds.

"I've considered going to lightweight," said Aldo. "As soon as my trainer decides that I can go up, then I will. This fight with Edgar will be a turning point. If I can win [against] him well, then I can prove that I can go [to lightweight].

"He has a very strong reputation thanks to destroying several opponents," Aldo continued. "That's the motivation for me to face him and that will be probably my last biggest challenge [at featherweight]."

If Aldo beats Edgar and does move to LW, I feel like that'll take a lot of fun out of the FW division. We'll basically end up with either Mendes or Edgar as the new champion but we'll all really know that neither is the true champion.

That being said, I hope Aldo wrecks Frankie, not an easy task but I would love to see it happen.

Same could be said of GSP going up to MW. After that, the WW champ would wear a paper crown. This is why I'm against that fight...because GSP's weight gain, he's stated, would be permanent.

And I honestly think Aldo-Edgar will be fight of the year, with Edgar winning by TKO late after taking a beating. I know that's quite a specific prediction,but not quite unprecedented either lol.

145 would become the weakest division imo if Aldo moved up or down but i would love to see him fight Cruz or Benson

WWETopTeam - Aldo is 2 levels above Ben Henderson, who is an illegitimate champion, having lost to Edgar twice.
Henderson is just as legitimate as Edgar who arguably lost to Penn first time out... Phone Post

If he beats Frankie I want to see him stick around and fight Zombie.

I think he wrecks Zombie but it would be a fun fight, perfect fight for Fox.

Aldo leaving the FW div would really take alot of excitement out of the div.

Why not hang around FW for a few more fights and continue building his GOAT FW legacy.

Edgar, Zombie, Koch/Cub/Lamas/Siver/Guida, Mendes rematch, he has some fights still at 145
