Jose Aldo Speaks on Facing Frankie Edgar in Las Vegas During Super Bowl Weekend
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 01.06.2013



MMAjunkie spoke with UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo who spoke via an interpreter about his upcoming title fight with former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar at UFC 156 on February 2 in Las Vegas. Aldo fights in Las Vegas for the first time since he won the WEC featherweight belt from Mike Brown in November 2009 at WEC 44. Here are some highlights:

Aldo's thoughts on fightind during Super Bowl weekend: "The Super Bowl is a very important championship. The whole world is tuned in. For me to be able to fight on that weekend is absolutely amazing."

Aldo on wanting to keep the match-up with Edgar even if it meant having to move it from Brazil to Las Vegas: "Initially, I wanted UFC to maintain the fight because I really wanted to fight Frankie. I would have liked it to be in Brazil because of the fan factor. Everybody rooting for us is a very important factor. But Las Vegas is going to be great. I know there's going to be a very large fanbase, and of course I grew up watching all the boxing fights in Las Vegas. It has a special charm in it for me."

Aldo on Frankie Edgar: "Frankie puts a lot of pressure on the opponent. He moves about a lot. He fought at a higher category where it isn't so explosive. In featherweight, there's a lot of movement, a lot of explosion. Now he's going to fight people with the same kind of training and explosion that he has."
