UFC 200: Cormier vs Jones 2 includes a whopping three title fights, including an interim Featherweight title clash between Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar.

The stakes are massive in this fight, as the winner may move on to face Conor McGregor for the Featherweight title, assuming that McGregor elects to move back down to 145 to defend his title. Whether or not McGregor does this all likely depends on the outcome of his fight against Nate Diaz at UFC 202 in August.

The winner of Edgar vs Aldo 2 may move on to face McGregor for millions of dollars, while the loser will fall down the Featherweight title ladder. There are numerous fights with much at stake on July 9th, but none may be more important to the two combatants involved than Edgar vs Aldo 2.


Jose Aldo won the first fight between these two men by a slim margin when he was still Featherweight champion. Some people, including Frankie Edgar, believe that the former Lightweight champion actually won the fight. Edgar promises not to lose to Aldo again.

Jose Aldo, on the other hand, will be looking to rebound following a devastating knockout loss to Conor McGregor at UFC 194. Knockouts change fighters, and it will be interesting to see if Aldo can move past the biggest setback of his professional career.

Here are the current betting odds as of this moment:

Frankie Edgar, -120
Jose Aldo, +100

According to these odds, Edgar is a very slight favourite to win, though the fight is essentially a coin toss. The big question mark in this fight is how Aldo will rebound after a loss - Edgar, after all, is in the midst of a long winning streak and has sky-high confidence, while Aldo is likely still reeling from his loss to McGregor.

This should be a fantastic fight.
