Former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar will step right into the featherweight division and receive a title shot, as he takes on Jose Aldo at UFC 153: Aldo vs. Edgar in October. As far as Edgar's manager, Ali Abdel-Aziz, is concerned, "The Answer" has been prepping for this fight for a while now.
"Frankie fought BJ Penn two times. Gray Maynard. He fought Ben Henderson, Sean Sherk; these are all big fights," said Abdel-Aziz, in a recent interview with Sherdog.com. "These guys are all great champions or most of those guys were champions. We definitely think Jose Aldo's a great champion also, but this is something Frankie's been training for all his life."
