Frankie Edgar's next move unclear, but UFC boss favors meeting with Jose Aldo

That said, UFC president Dana White would still like to see him make the move to featherweight, especially for a bout against 145-pound kingpin Jose Aldo. "Honestly, I'd like to see [Edgar] move to 145 and fight Aldo," White said following Saturday night's UFC 136 post-event press conference at Houston's Toyota Center. view original article >>
