CURITIBA -- Jose Aldo is out for vengeance, but first has to deal with Frankie Edgar at UFC 200.

The former UFC featherweight champion, who defeated Edgar via unanimous decision, meets "The Answer" one more time for the interim title on July 9, and expects a different fight.

"I don’t think it will be like the first one," Aldo said during a Q&A with the fans prior to the UFC 198 official weigh-ins. "He’s coming differently, but when we get into it he will go back to his game, and that’s when we’re catching him. I revised my concepts, we learn a lot with the losses, and I learned."

If he’s victorious against Edgar at UFC 200, Aldo hopes to avenge a 13-second knockout loss to current 145-pound champion Conor McGregor next -- even if it’s outside the Octagon.

"I will get there and run through (Edgar). It doesn’t matter what happens, we will win the fight," he said. "After that, we will get (McGregor) even if it’s in the streets."
