Jose Aldo looks past Edgar at UFC 200, already in pursuit of McGregor

JOSE ALDO LOOKS PAST EDGAR AT UFC 200, ALREADY IN PURSUIT OF MCGREGOR
By Fernanda Prates, MMAJunkie.com
From the outside, the 13-second knockout loss to Conor McGregor that cost Jose Aldo his UFC belt looked like a soul-crushing way to end a dominant, decade-long undefeated streak.

But, if you ask the former champ, the “disappointing” moment might just have been what he needed to reignite a spark.

“Before (the loss), I don’t know if I was inadvertently in a comfort zone, but I was dragging along a little,” Aldo said during a media scrum on the lead-up to his UFC 200 return. “Just sort of maintaining and coasting. Not anymore. Now I’m getting back to my WEC days, when we went all out and risked it to win the fights. I’m focused on that. Obviously I’m not going in there like a mad man, but it’s a new Aldo again.”
