Jose Aldo looks to defend his UFC title belt for the fourth time since the UFC/WEC merger. Aldo made his UFC debut in April of last year, when he defeated Mark Hominick by unanimous decision. He has since earned a unanimous decision victory against Kenny Florian and a knockout win against Chad Mendes to retain the title.

Former UFC lightweight champion, Frank Edgar gets a shot at the title in his first UFC fight at 145 pounds. He has lost back-to-back controversial decisions to Ben Henderson, which has persuaded him to drop to featherweight. Edgar won the UFC 155 pound title in April of 2010 against BJ Penn, then defended it three times in a rematch with BJ Penn and twice against Gray Maynard.
