Jose Aldo Confident Of Upcoming Rematch

One of the ways fighters gets their fans all irked up about an oncoming fight is to tell them how they are confident of beating their opponent or how much they are looking forward to getting down in the ring with a certain opponent with whom they have faced a match before.

Jose Aldo has been talking in a similar way about Frankie Edgar. The fight they had initially took place back in 2013 in the featherweight division. At that time he had defended his title and had gained victory as well. The game had been held in Las Vegas. The rematch is now planned at UFC 200. Jose of Brazilian origin, has been studying the moves and the evolution of his opponent over time. He feels that his style has not changed and that this time too he will be able to seek easy victory as easy as beating him with one arm.

It was a stark contrast in terms of Chad Mendes after their first meeting in 2012. The improvements made by him were something spectacular. It was knockout in every round. There was clear animosity as well as respect towards the game that was visible clearly.

The atmosphere in Rio de Janeiro was spectacular. Mendes told ESPN that he gave it his all in the match. It is something great when the two are in the ring and straight cut out is what occurs. He eventually gave Aldo a hug after the fight. It was crazy as they are opponents like any other and are unaware of each other’s personal lives. Read more »
