While Frankie Edgar still has “The Notorious” one set in his sights, “The Answer” has started talking about who he’s hoping to see across the Octagon after a potential title fight with UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor.
Edgar spoke with 97.3 ESPN’s “The Sports Bash” recently about his February 2013 decision loss to Jose Aldo and how he would like to fight him in a rematch after a McGregor fight — which is still his primary goal.
“The Answer” stated the following:
“All my fights I’ve lost have been very, very close. There’s never been a fight where I’ve gotten blown out, or haven’t been in. I mean, I could even argue, that I think I won that Aldo fight. I outstruck him rounds two, four and five. You know, took him down three times to none. It was a close fight; my first fight down at 145. I think I’ve improved. I’m not looking to fight Aldo yet, I want to fight McGregor for that 145-pound title, but I’d love a chance to get some redemption at Aldo as well.”
