Frankie Edgar blasts “delusional” Jose Aldo

Frankie Edgar

Ahead of UFC 200 on July 9th, it appears as though Frankie Edgar has had enough of Jose Aldo’s trash talk. The pair are currently slated to fight on the main card in an interim featherweight championship fight, with the winner facing Conor McGregor at a later date.

Recently, Edgar stated that he felt Aldo was talking trash just to hype the fight, but was doing a rather poor job of it. In a new interview with MMAJunkie, Edgar continued his retorts to Aldo’s comments:

“I think he’s a little delusional is what I think,” Edgar (20-4-1 MMA, 14-4-1 UFC) said of Aldo (25-2 MMA, 7-1 UFC), who he meets in the co-headliner of UFC 200 on July 9 at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena. “I think he’s trying to talk himself up. After a devastating loss like that, I know his confidence can’t be too high, and sometimes, they say, you keep telling yourself these affirmations, and it comes true.

“I think he’s trying to do that, but it doesn’t work. Talking’s not enough – you’ve got to show up and perform. We’re going to find out July 9 if he can back his talk up.”
