Frankie Edgar used the UFC’s own website as a way to promote himself as the No. 1 contender to featherweight champion Jose Aldo.
Edgar, a former lightweight champion, defeated Cub Swanson recently to secure his standing in the division. Conor McGregor remains a popular choice among some, but “The Answer” pointed to a poll ran on the UFC’s site recently.

Edgar also made it known on Twitter that he has a date picked out for the bout: his own backyard in 2015. The two previously fought, with Aldo earning a decision victory.
