Dana White: Aldo vs. Edgar still the plan

"Frankie stepped up and took that fight," White said. "Aldo, from what we're hearing, doesn't look like he'll be out that long, so we'll redo it.

"Frankie Edgar jumps in to camp and starts spending money again. Camp costs money. These things aren't free. You don't just go to the gym and everything is free. He's got to put some time and effort into it, start calling in sparring partners and trying to find people. He was well into that when Aldo got hurt, so we're going to give it to him."

White admitted he was obviously frustrated that he lost Aldo's services to a motorcycle accident, especially when the sport has seen fighters such as Frank Mir and Will Ribeiro suffer disastrous consequences in similar situations.

"It's not that I'm angry at him, it's just – come on, man," White said. "I understood when you were fighting for the WEC and you made $4,000 and $4,000. It's tough to buy a car and pay your rent and everything you had going on. That dude has made some money. You made some money. Buy a car. Buy a nice car, a safe car.

Flattr this!
