UFC’s Rafael Dos-Anjos, Eddie Alvarez, Jose Aldo, and Frankie Edgar on media conference call today!
Although there was what could be considered a great show of respect by all the fighters on the call today, it was not without its interesting moments.
When Rafael Dos-Anjos (24-7) was asked about his upcoming fight with Eddie Alvarez he had this to say: “I can’t wait to get the win on July 7th.” Eddie Alvarez (27-4) on the other hand—who seemed a bit philosophical and in a calm, almost zen-like state on the call—was more reflective. “Where I am is I want to fight the absolute best. We are defined by the people we fight.”
Watch their fight go down Thurs. July 7, 2016 at 10PM /7PM EST/PST on UFC Fight Pass.
In what promises to be an epic battle on a stacked , fighter Frankie Edgar (19-4) says he is a much improved fighter and is expecting “a highly motivated Aldo to show up in the Octagon.” Jose Aldo (25-2) commented that he was “ready for 5-round fight” but hoped to finish it much earlier, and said he has not given any thought to his previous fight with Conor McGregor.
