Aldo discussed his training regime and why he decided to not throw any kicks at Edgar during the five-round bout.
"If I kicked, he'd take me down," Aldo said. "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 [using] my left hand, because he would counter on that."
Aldo, known as a very well-rounded fighter, went even further to say his camp always puts a spy in his opponent's camp.
"Of course I had [spies]. Otherwise, why wouldn't I kick? That's my instinct," Aldo said. "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."
