It’s crazy that I can train at Renzo Gracie’s academy around the block, but I can’t fight in front of my friends and family in my own backyard.” When asked who he wanted to fight Edgar stated, “ I want Jose Aldo for a title, in Madison Square Garden. “ Fankie Edgar in Toms River New Jersey, just a few miles from New York City; no doubt a title fight featuring Edgar would be a gigantic draw in the Big Apple.
Edgar wants to shut up and build himself back as a contender not get title shot after title shot, the MSG show is happening in November apparently, Aldo is figthing in August so even if Edgar beats someone that warrants him a title shot that would probably happen next year with Pettis/Aldo and then Lamas getting a title shot, plus Swanson/KZ and Chad if he beats Guida should all be in front of him.
Oh and Frankie Edgar apparently isn't a big draw anywhere so I don't see how it would be a big draw, it would sell well because people in NY have been wanting the UFC there not because of Edgar.
