Edgar Mocks Aldo’s Past Injuries

UFC 200 is not the first time Frankie Edgar has been scheduled to rematch Jose Aldo, but Aldo withdrew due to an injury.

Heading into their fight at UFC 200, Edgar talked about the first time they were supposed to rematch and what he expects out of their title fight:

“We were supposed to fight earlier and he had a little boo-boo on his foot from a motorcycle accident and we had to reschedule. I highly doubt he’s ever fought injured,” Edgar said. “If he did, he must fight injured all the time because how much does this guy pull out of fights?”

There were rumors that circulated earlier this week that Aldo was injured again during training although the Brazilian quickly squashed the story with a photo he posted while proclaiming his health ahead of UFC 200.

Of course, Aldo also claimed that he wasn’t injured ahead of his first scheduled bout with McGregor in 2015 before he ultimately pulled out of the fight due to a rib injury.

For his part, Edgar is training and preparing for the best Aldo he’s ever faced, but if the oft-injured former champion decides to pull out of their fight at UFC 200, he’ll be ready for whoever the promotion hands him as a replacement.

“I’m just trying to focus on him but I won’t be surprised if that happens, obviously,” Edgar said about Aldo’s tendency to get injured. “You’re seeing it happen in every weight class, not just us, but especially with Aldo. Anything can happen.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
