Joe Rogan Argues Conor McGregor – Frankie Edgar is a “Way Easier Sell” Than Rematch With Jose Aldo
By FCF Staff
Since McGregor knocked out Jose Aldo in December, the former champ and renowned fighter has been campaigning for an immediate rematch. Edgar, who took out fellow top contender Chad Mendes that same month, has also been driving hard for a bout with McGregor.
“Frankie Edgar is a way easier sell,” Rogan said. “Maybe if Aldo comes back and wins in spectacular fashion, like if he and Cub Swanson have a rematch. Because Swanson-Aldo went the same way Aldo and McGregor went. Aldo hits him with a flying knee two seconds into the fight cracks him. Aldo has to win again. You could sell [Aldo-McGregor II], but you wouldn’t sell it for as much as if Aldo won.
“Frankie Edgar is a 48-hour storm,” addedRogan. “You better have everything strapped down. He’s not going to get tired and he’s going to keep coming at you. He can wrestle his ass off. His footwork is sensational…”
Immediately after McGregor was submitted by Nate Diaz at UFC 196 earlier this month, he expressed an interest in granting Aldo a shot at the belt.
