At UFC 200 on July 9th, Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar will fight for the interim UFC featherweight championship, with the winner facing Conor McGregor for the undisputed featherweight championship at a later date.
Aldo and Edgar met once before at UFC 156 back in 2013 for Aldo’s featherweight championship. Ultimately, Aldo was given the nod in the fight, which was awarded Fight of the Night honors.
Now, with the pair slated to fight once again in just over 2 months, Aldo believes that the fight will have the same outcome as the first, and lead to a rematch with Conor McGregor for the UFC featherweight championship.
