Jose Aldo – “We Had A Few Spies In Edgar’s Camp, They Always Came & Talked To Us”


At UFC 200, Jose Aldo dominated #1 contender Frankie Edgar from bell to bell to win the Interim UFC Title. In an interview back in Brazil translated by MMAFighting, Aldo revealed that he had a spy in Frankie’s camp.


“If I kicked, he’d take me down, we had a few spies from the other side, people that were training close to him the entire week, and they always came and talked to us. So I had to stop kicking and my left hand, because he would counter on that.”

Asked again if he really did have a spy in Frankie’s camp, Jose responded:

“Of course I had. Otherwise, why wouldn’t I kick? That’s my instinct. So we always have a spy. We send someone to be a part of that training room and then they give us information. We get that information and know what they are training. Thank God it always happens, man, we always have Brazilians in the other corners. When I go train in the first day, I also see the list of cornerman. And, if there’s a Brazilian, we go after him and ask him to take a look, because that helps a lot.”
