Jose Aldo may have gotten the better of Frankie Edgar back at UFC 156, however at UFC 200 on July 9th, Frankie Edgar foresees a very different fight. Aldo on the other hand, believes he will win the fight after “easily” winning the first one, apparently with just his left arm.
Ahead of UFC 200, Edgar spoke to reporters in Rio de Janeiro to discuss Aldo’s trash talk ahead of the fight.
MMAFighting has the scoop:
“You’re seeing it across the board in all weight classes,” Edgar said. “Guys are getting more vocal. They’re just seeing what it’s done for Conor, so they’re trying to kind of make their voice heard. I think that’s what Aldo is doing.
“Arguably, you could say I haven’t lost a round since me and Aldo fought. He’s just been in some either pretty boring (fights), or wars since our fight. So, I think I’m the one who looks like he’s evolved more than Aldo has. So yeah, I don’t know. I think he’s just talking the fight up.”
“This guy is like I said. People are trying to talk. He’s just not that great at doing it, you know?”
“He’s just trying to create buzz, and I get what he’s trying to do, but we all know he doesn’t fight injured. The guy pulls out of fights every other fight, so he definitely doesn’t fight injured. So we can just throw that one away. And everybody talks about how our fight was close. He wants to sit there and have this false sense of security? Maybe that’s why he’s trying to talk like this, because he’s dealing with this knockout loss. But, by all means, go ahead and go in there super confident.”
