UFC 194: Dana White on potential Jose Aldo vs Conor McGregor title rematch -- 'There's no doubt, but we'll see how it goes'

As always, the 145-pound title picture remains cloudy and surging top contender Frankie Edgar is caught right in the middle of it.

Current UFC Featherweight top contender Frankie Edgar knocked out ex-title challenger Chad Mendes in the main event of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 22 Finale last night (Fri., Dec. 11, 2015) and likely secured himself a title shot.

We just have to wait until the UFC 194 pay-per-view (PPV) title unification headliner between 145-pound champion Jose Aldo and interim titleholder Conor McGregor concludes tonight (Sat., Dec. 12, 2015) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"We've got to see how the fight goes, but yeah, there's not doubt about it [a rematch takes place], but we'll see how it goes," White told FOX Sports' Ariel Helwani in a backtstage interview.

"The Answer" floored "Money" with a vicious left hook (highlights) less than three minutes into their tilt, which took place inside "The Chelsea" at The Cosmopolitan.

White told media at the post-fight press conference that Edgar was indeed the next in-line for a title shot at 145 pounds, but with a money-making machine like McGregor, who is more than confident he'll take out the Brazilian early, a rematch -- like this upcoming one -- would do big bucks.

Edgar understands a lot can change over the course of the next 24 hours, so we'll just have to see if White keeps his word after "Junior" collides with "Notorious" in the most anticipated main event of 2015.

If we're using history as an indicator, though, it's not looking good for Edgar.
