Jose Aldo is only a couple of weeks away from his first fight since he lost the UFC featherweight title to Conor McGregor in December. His next bout, a rematch with former lightweight champion, Frankie Edgar, is for the interim featherweight title.

As Aldo told Combate, however, he doesn't feel like the sudden KO loss by the hands of "The Notorious" has taught him anything to deal with Edgar's threats, as he believes it's a whole different challenge.

"It's totally different. They have nothing to do with one another. It won't teach me anything, it's in the past. I analyze my next opponent and we study everything that he does. We do everything based on him. That's in the past, I'm thinking about Edgar. I put a rock on that subject. I always try to look forward."

Jose Aldo is scheduled to take on Frankie Edgar in the co-main event of UFC 200, on July 9, in Las Vegas. The card will be headlined by the light heavyweight title unification bout between interim champion, Jon Jones, and the reigning champion, Daniel Cormier.
