Aldo On Edgar | If He Doesn’t Drop Down, I’ll Have To Go Up


“Having Edgar, a former lightweight champion, would be amazing for the featherweight division, but if he doesn’t come down [to 145 pounds], in the future, I’m going to have to move to lightweight… Edgar thinks he won against Henderson, so he really had to stay in his division and get the rematch. If he comes to featherweight, we’ll fight. Many people want to see it.”

UFC featherweight champion, Jose Aldo tells sherdog.com that he believes that a match between him and former lightweight champion, Frankie Edgar is a fight that everyone wants to see.

If the two fighters do ever meet up, who takes it?

  1. kyle says:

    aldo will destroy edgar with a badddd knockout unless edgar somehow drags it into the fifth round which i doubt he can do. Even if he does his legs will be destroyed

    • CALI says:

      He’ll just run the whole fight. Hopefully Jose can stop that by chopping down his legs.

    • Mike McMack says:

      Agreed, Aldo is a monster at FW where Edgar would still be small for that division. I think it would still be a great fight but i don’t think anyone is taking that belt away from Aldo. He’ll move up to LW eventually which will make the FW division really interesting cause there will actually be legit competition for the belt.

  2. slacker says:

    haha. Right on. Looks like Lighter weight superfights are going to happen before the heavier divisions.

    • cuz it's ez-er says:

      whats so funny
      there’s only a 10 lbs. difference between 25 – 35 – 45 – 55

      lw55 ww70 = 15 lbs
      ww mw85 = 15 lbs
      mw lhw05 = 20 lbs
      lhw hw65 = 60 lbs

      i doubt u ever cut

      • wrestler says:

        its not as steep of a cut because the weight is more precise in the fighting in the lighter weight classes. ive wrestled at 145 as a high school freshman, and bumping up to 152 was a different world. but when i hit my growth spurt in my junior year i wrestled 189 and bumped to 215 plenty and it wasnt much of a difference. same with from 171 to 189. the lighter you are, the more crucial weight differences are.
        but frankie doesnt cut any weight, im assuming adlo cuts about ten pounds for his fights. therefore i dont think weight will have a big factor in this fight if they both cut about ten. henderson looked like a welterwieght in the fight against frankie, because he cuts that much weight to be at 155. the winner will be the the who possesses more speed, imo.

  3. A.James says:

    Edgar would be the most complete fighter that Aldo would have ever faced. Aldo is good but, who has he beat?

    • Joseph PWNY says:

      only everyone in his division

    • DErek says:

      are you serious? have you watched aldo fight?

    • A.James WTF are you smoking? says:

      You must be a UFC fanboy who didn’t even realize there was a 145 division until the WEC merged with the UFC. Aldo has beaten EVERY top fighter in the 145 division, and has 155 fighters cutting down just to fight him. Aldo would destroy Edgar, and that’s why Edgar is dodging him. Once Edgar loses to Bendo, all you Edgar nuthuggers will fade away.

      • mean170 says:

        Aldo beats everyone, and does it in impressive fashion(with the exception of the Kenny Florian fight). I like FE, but his fan-base is delusional. Aldo will hammer his legs in round 1. Round 2 Frankie will be slower, and will eat some hard punches, along with more leg kicks. Round 3 Frankie will get rocked, put on the ground, and finished with some ground and pound or a choke. I know anything can happen in a fight, but i only see about 3 or so 155ers that could hang/beat Aldo.

        • meh says:

          aldo’s only loss is at 55

        • wrestler says:

          a lot of people seem to think that aldo will take out Fe’s legs. but do you remember how many leg kicks were stopped and caught in the henderson edgar fight? its obvious he was training for them. and theres no debating that hendersons legs are stronger and bigger than aldos. so if edgar could stop hendersons kicks, i dont think aldo will have much success in his leg kicks with edgar as he did with faber.

        • Dude says:

          You my friend are forgetting the difference. Aldo is a soccer player, i can guarentee he kicks alot hard then bendo. And also if his legs are bigger, the will come slower aldo is unpredictable with his kicks. And when he kicks they come fast. Watch aldo vs fabor and you’ll see the true damage. Faber was in crutches for 2 weeks after that fight.

        • Xaninho says:

          Uhm if you look at it again you might notice Bendo was throwing bodykicks, not legkicks…Catching those was pretty stupid to begin with, cause he caught them after the contact so the kicks still landed and hurt him as well.

        • JC says:

          @Dude, just because Hendo’s legs are bigger doesnt mean they are automatically slower.

          They are muscle, not fat. As long as his cardio stays strong, they will get oxygen and he will be able to throw with plenty of speed. Also, the speed generated comes from how quickly his fast-twitch muscle fibers respond. And being a pro, he trains by using a ton of different exercises/drills, if Frankie can take bendo’s kicks, he can take aldo’s. im not saying that frankie will beat aldo, i just think that aldo will need to use his full arsenal and use his hands and footwork to set them up. Edgar knows to look for them.

      • wumbo says:

        am i the only one that saw aldo vs hominick? he couldn’t even finish hominick, what makes you think he’ll be able to finish edgar? let’s not forget edgar has a hell of a chin, plus he wouldn’t “destroy” edgar. it’d be a pretty even fight.

        • Xaninho says:

          Aldo wasn’t in the best shape when he fought Hominick. And maybe you’re not giving Hominick the credit he deserves, he’s not that bad of a fighter you know.

    • Xaninho says:

      Are you kidding me? There is no one left for him to beat dude! Aldo is way up there on the p4p list. If he moves up he can take the belt in 155 too.

    • Zach says:

      Wow, hands down most ignorant comment ive seen on these boards. lol.

  4. danny says:

    i got Frankie winning this one

  5. Bloodhound says:

    Kick his ass Aldo!

  6. lp says:

    I like fighters that will fight anyone. Thats Aldo.

  7. Mr.Rusk says:

    Don’t be scared frankie

  8. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    I think it would be more advantageous for Edgar to drop to 145 to face Aldo.

  9. Edwin Rentas Jr. says:

    Aldo would beat the shit out of him.

  10. bart says:

    Ahhhhhhh Shit!!!! As long as the extra muscle doesnt affect his cardio he will be fuckn shit up!!!!! JOSSSSEEEEEE AAAAAALDOOOOOOOO!!!!

  11. Mike Honcho says:

    Edgar will lose, cry for a rematch with his eyes swollen shut at the post fight interviews. It is his protocol.

    • Xaninho says:

      lmao!

    • effyocouch says:

      +1

      I liked Edgar before his constant bitching over a rematch with Bendo. If you ask me, the fight wasn’t that close. Edgar got the takedowns, yes, but what else did he get? Besides a battered face while Bendo looked fine, that is.

      Aldo will take this fight and win it very convincingly.

  12. Nick says:

    Aldo would wreck him.

  13. k says:

    That would be an interesting fight, but edgar wants to go down to featherweight on his terms I mean wouldn’t it be better to do that when he’s winning? instead of doing it like if he’s running away from people at lightweight? that’s just my opinion.

  14. TheCrippler says:

    The guy loses one fight to one of the most talented fighters in the sport (I believe he won) and everybody tells him to drop down. That’s how stupid MMA’s spectators are. You could have the belt and as soon as you lose you suck and should retire because you can’t beat anybody.

    • abc says:

      be quiet chris leben! we ain’t saying he sucks, he should drop down because he looked small as shit compared to henderson. though edgar did throw henderson around, how long did he keep him down? exactly… size matters is all….

    • Chris says:

      People have been saying Frankie should drop down for a while now. The idea is just gaining ground and focused on more because he lost. It’s not exactly a revelation.

  15. watchafightbeforecommenting says:

    Who has Aldo beat…? You’re either an idiot or brand new to MMA! He beat Kenny Florian up pretty badly and Florian has fought in a lot heavier weight classes and done well in each one. Aldo never backs down from fights and always has exciting fights. Learn your shit before commenting on shit you know nothing about…

  16. Yogurt slinger says:

    Aldo is gonna have to move up anyway lol,who is he kidding…and were was all of this talk when Edgar knocked out Maynard from Aldo’s camp? So let me get this right…..Edgar declines to drop weight since before Aldo was champ. Aldo and Edgar both become champs in there respective division. After Edgar ko Maynard Dana shoots down the idea of a champion vs champion super fight saying Edgar would have to vacate the 55 title. So Edgar looks for a fight with Gil Melendez but Dana now says Gil is staying put. Aldo hires Maynard as a traing partner, Edgar not wanting to get stripped of his title takes on Bendo and loses a fight witch I personally thought he won, and now Aldo’s camp has a voice? The people say Edgar is scarred to drop to 45? And now all the sudden Aldo wants to move up?…..I smell politics, don’t be surprised if Bendo gets hurt before this next fight lol.

    • Twatty Mc.Twatface says:

      i smell shit coming from out of your mouth.
      aldo wants the fight that people want to see
      if you thought edgar won that fight you are delusional and didnt watch properly with or without commentary.
      im a fan of both bendo and edgar. i didnt mind who won as both are a bit annoying when theyve won.
      bendo dedicates it to jesus in the most golspel like way possible
      edgars wife jump in the oct screaming her fucking tits off FRANKIEEEEEEEEE BAYBEEEEEEEEEE

  17. Gouldx87 says:

    Urijah Faber, Mike brown, Mark Hominic, Kenny Florian, its a whose who list of 145lb fighters…. who would you like him to beat the shit out of to get the credit he deserves lol

    • danielrchargers says:

      kennys done with 145… to bad i thot he looked great theres. hes attempting one last try at 155. then calling it a career.

  18. Thom says:

    Aldo is like BJ a true warrior who wants to be challenged, he obviously wants to fight Edgar instead of the Korean Zombie or whoever is next in line at 145.. Aldo is a beast and if Edgar is stupid enough to take that fight he will get finished.

  19. mike r says:

    Theres a guy I can respect, Aldo want to fight the best and will go out his way to do it, no politics, no when im ready for it bs, none of that “he trains with this gym that is allies with my gym”, just straight I want Frankie Edgar even if i got to go up in weight to do it. not even Anderson Silva speaks out about jumping weight classes to fight the best

    • Turkeykneck fun chav says:

      that why he went 205 twice and smashed people in that devision too?

      learn your history

      • mike r says:

        i know my history, he smashed two bums at 205, not GSP or Bones Jones, or Rashad Evens but Forrest Griffin and James Irvin. Try reading my point before you criticize

        “not even Anderson Silva speaks out about jumping weight classes to fight the BEST”

  20. John M says:

    Aldo is a Fucking Boss!

  21. Do my trolls run this mutha fucka says:

    I personally believe this will would be a great fight. Aldo is in a smaller weight class but still holds a significant weight advantage vs Edgar. Edgar cuts no weight at 155 and Aldo cuts about 30lbs (or a bit more) at 145. Aldo finishes a lot of fighters but never a fighter that has great foot work ( hominik/florian ). I think Aldo takes the fight but I think a lot of these people on here aren’t giving him credit where it is due. Aldo won’t finish Edgar, he’d have to out point him ( Faber, hominik, florian ). People seem to forget the hominik fight, I don’t care what the nut huggers think, but Aldo won 48-47. It was way closer than the baseball sized goose egg on hominik’s head made it appear and Edgar is a very similar fighter to hominik but about 10 times better in most aspects. Think about it. Like I said tho, I think aldo takes it but it will be a lot closer than some of you guys are making it seem.

  22. Edgar says:

    Why does Edgar have to move down to 145pd when he is winning at 155.. Aldo is a pussy he just wants to fight edgar! I don’t here him calling out other 155 pounders! I think Edgar would be a big test for Aldo

  23. Sin says:

    Must be boring for Aldo at 145…. i mean jesus theres like nobody who can even come close to beating him. closest was Hominick and he is long gone back at the prelims for now. Seriously who has a chance ?

  24. UFC VIDEOS says:

    Aldo is going to have problems at 155..

  25. josh says:

    I have BJ winning this fight.. oh wait he retired. :( I give frankie a good chance against anyone. His style is his style. He is a point fighter but he does have the ko of maynard on his hands and he did beat bj twice. Those two wins are better than anyone Jose has ever fought.

  26. Dick Diaz says:

    They need to have the same day weight ins and that will give Edgar a big advantage over Jose

  27. bobby says:

    Edgar will kill this overrated fool. Aldo is ducking LW, hes having bad cuts to stay down there and its starting to effect his fighting, but sure Aldo is P4P cause he wont fight at 155 yuppppppppp. Talk about dumb fan boys

  28. Larfreeze says:

    Aldo would destroy Edgar. Edgar doesn’t have the speed or athletism to match Aldo. One elbow from Aldo, Edgar would be bleeding and with probably a broken orbital bone.

    Aldo is a true warrior and with one of the coolest scars.

  29. AK says:

    ^lmao Bobby u just took the cake with your ignorance and stupidity and thas hard to do here..Aldo sai in the article that he would fight Edgar at either 45 or 55 and would probably also move up 2 55 in the future just to try and dominate there 2…which he probably would.

  30. jbeamazing says:

    yea go to L w and make Fw as relevant as the girls division or maybe they will have a tournament when faber loses to dom c so faber can fight mike brown for the Fw title and actually be able to be a ufc champ lol olo

  31. jbeamazing says:

    @ A.James WTF are you smoking?
    you gonna name them big names aldo beat?i got only 3 faber,manny,ken flow and i watched the wec Ive watch ever mma card the last 5 years that have mattered on this wonderful internet

    • Turkeykneck fun chav says:

      every mma card matters douche.
      Kenny Florian
      Mike Brown
      Urijah Faber
      chad mendez
      Mark Hominick

      the rest have too many loses recently to put them up but still thats a pretty decent handfull of fighters hes beaten.

      • Quazzi says:

        And not just that he beat them but how he beat them. Homnick is the only guy to give him any kind of challenge and even then at the end there was no doubt who won.

  32. Chandellas bicycle seat says:

    The Korean Zombie is not to be taken lightly. Hominick showed us that Aldo isn’t untouchable. The Zombie will beat Aldo. By vicious neck crank.

  33. best opinion on the nets says:

    Aldo is a badass.

  34. Jeremy says:

    Aldos hits egard with 3 to 4 leg kicks and frankie would be limping for the rest of the fight. Aldo is a soccer player, his leg kicks are harder than bendos

  35. Dosan says:

    Aldo is a cocky SOB.
