Aldo Admits to Having Spies in Edgar’s Camp


Jose Aldo earned a unanimous decision win over Frankie Edgar at UFC 200 to claim the interim featherweight title. Aldo lost the undisputed title to Conor McGregor, but fought Edgar for the interim title after McGregor chose to fight twice in a row at welterweight.

It was the second time Aldo had defeated Edgar, a former lightweight champion, and this time out was more dominant, something he thanked to having some inside information:

“If I kicked, he’d take me down,” Aldo said during a media day at Nova Uniao on Wednesday. “We had a few spies from the other side, people that were training close to him the entire week, and they always came and talked to us. So I had to stop kicking and [using] my left hand, because he would counter on that.”

Asked one more time if he really had a spy in Las Vegas, Aldo doubled down.

“Of course I had [spies]. Otherwise, why wouldn’t I kick? That’s my instinct,” Aldo said. “So we always have a spy. We send someone to be a part of that training [room] and then they give us information. We get that information and know what they are training.”

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.
