Jose Aldo solidified his name among mixed martial arts’ pound-for pound best fighters with a unanimous decision victory over former UFC lightweight champion, Frank Edgar at UFC 156. He’s now defended his UFC/WEC featherweight title six times in a row, including key victories over Urijah Faber, Mark Hominick, and Chad Mendes.
Lightweight standout, Anthony Pettis wants a shot at UFC gold as soon as possible, so he’ll drop to featherweight for the first time in his career to face Jose Aldo. He’s won his last three fights, since dropping a unanimous decision to Clay Guida in his UFC debut. Victories include a decision win over Jeremy Stephens and knockout wins over Joe Lauzon and Donald Cerrone.
