"I think you always make minor changes whether you won a fight, lost a fight, or have a different opponent. I fought (Maynard) twice so it does have a bit of a different dynamic; I’m going to try to give him a few different problems than I did last time. It’s going to take my whole team to come up with a solid game plan and to make solid adjustments. I’m not considering [a drop to featherweight] right now with this fight looming with Gray, but I probably can make 145lbs. It’s definitely a good option to have with the UFC acquiring the featherweight division now; there are some good potential match-ups for me at that weight class. Who knows how I’ll fare at 145 though. Just because you’re going down doesn’t mean you’re going to be dominant. I will be cutting weight, I will be giving up speed, but I will be gaining size, so there are a lot of ways you have to look at it."
UFC Lightweight Champion Frankie Edgar tells Tapology that a drop to featherweight isn't out of the question, but not something he's considering with a Gray Maynard rubber match set for UFC 130 later this year. Edgar still hasn't figured out "The Answer" to defeating "The Bully," losing to him once in 2008 and then battling to a draw earlier this year. Would a definitive loss to his 155-pound nemesis send him packing to Aldo's world for a superfight the Brazilian considers a "dream come true?" Or will the Toms River native finally overcome Maynard and the doubting Thomases?
