Can Frankie Edgar Beat Jose Aldo?

UFC Tonight analyst Kenny Florian knows what it is like to go 25 minutes with UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo. Before he retired from fighting, Florian was paired up with Aldo, who will make his next title defense in 2013 against Frankie Edgar.

Edgar, a former UFC lightweight champion, moved down to the division after a recent decision loss to Benson Henderson for the belt. The two were expected to meet earlier this month, but an injury knocked "Scarface" out.

So, will Edgar have "The Answer" when he steps inside the Octagon in February with Aldo? Here's what Florian had to say:

"If there is one guy who can do it, it is Edgar," Florian said. "He has the speed to get in and out with his boxing."

Florian added that, "These are the top 145-pounders. Even though Edgar hasn't fought at 145, he should be there. This is a fight that everyone wants to see."
