Frankie Edgar Expects José Aldo Fight To Be A Long One

Leading up to their featherweight championship fight, José Aldo (21-1) and Frankie Edgar (14-3-1) will be posting video blogs. Aldo said in one of his early ones that he expects to finish Edgar quickly. In Edgar’s first video blog for his upcoming UFC 156 showdown, he admitted that Aldo will be in for a long fight.

“I’m hearing he’s doing some video blogs saying I’m not going to be making it out of the first or second round,” said Edgar. “Homeboys got something coming as I’m feeling good and ready to go.”

The pair was supposed to meet at UFC 153, but that fight was scratched when Aldo injured himself in a motorcycle accident about a month out. The fight would have been Edgar’s debut as a featherweight, after he dropped his lightweight title to Benson Henderson (17-2) and the rematch that followed in 2012.

Aldo vs. Edgar is now set to headline UFC 156 from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, NV. The card takes place February 2nd.
