Frankie Edgar Believes Jose Aldo Has Learned His Lesson | UFC NEWS


New Jersey native and former UFC lightweight champion, Frankie Edgar is among those affected by Hurricane Sandy along with many residents of the northeastern United States.  Though his home suffered minimal damages, the neighboring borough of Seaside Heights — famous for it’s boardwalk and having been the setting for the TV show Jersey Shore — was not so lucky. Edgar states on Wednesday’s edition of The MMA Hour…

“The whole boardwalk literally, if it’s not torn up, it needs to be replaced.  I don’t know what they’re going to do, how they’re going to re-situate it, because they’re going to have to do something.

“It’s real sad. I grew in these places. Just beside the fact that Seaside, that’s where I used to go in the summer, every summer, this past summer I hung out there all the time; it’s more so, just the people who lost their homes. You want to see them bounce back. It’s just real tough.”

Edgar is lucky enough that the stress of the current situation won’t bleed over into training camp. He is roughly 12 weeks out from his heavily anticipated superfight against UFC featherweight champ, Jose Aldo.  It’s hard not to think that the fight would have already been in the books had Aldo not recklessly injured his foot while riding his motorcycle in Brazil last September.  Edgar, though, isn’t holding any grudges.

“I’m not going to knock the dude for that.  You could hurt yourself walking down the stairs. I’m sure he’s going to learn his lesson and hopefully not ride motorcycles during his training camp, or maybe wait until he’s done with his fighting career.”

“I was looking forward to fighting October 13th,” Edgar admitted. “I still had a bad taste in my mouth from my last fight. I figured the best way to get over that was to jump back in there right away. That would have been cool. Plus the fact that you only had five weeks to prepare. You only had five weeks to be in your head. That would’ve been nice too.

“But I feel things happen for a reason. [It’s] a blessing in disguise.”

    Meisha Tate just farted, can someone @ please report on it?


    Edgar should count his blessing for the extra time to train for Aldo. He’s gonna need it to take that belt.

  3. Jimmy says:

    It’s gonna b a long night Frankie, aldo wins this fight

  4. Bob says:

    I believe Aldo will win round 1 and 2 then it will be a controversial 3rd 4th and 5th. The reason I say that is because Aldo always starts strong and tires out while Franky always starts slow and picks up his extra wind mid to the later rounds.

  5. Xaninho says:

    This won’t go past the 1st round. Aldo is going to KO and send Frankie ‘the Rematch’ Edgar to DW’s office on a stretcher so he can whine for another rematch.

  6. Unknown says:

    Also 3rd round stoppage.

  7. GRT 3000 says:
