Jose Aldo wins close decision over Frankie Edgar, defends belt

Sunday, February 03, 2013

Solidifying his hold as one of the sport’s current pound-for-pound greats, Jose Aldo turned back Frankie Edgar’s attempt to become only the third two-division champion in UFC history, defeating Edgar in a unanimous decision in the main event of UFC 156.

The judges scored the bout 49-46, 49-46 and 48-47 for the featherweight champion.

Of course, it wouldn’t be an Edgar bout without some bit of controversy. When the final scores were read, a large part of the Mandalay Bay Events Center crowd booed the decision, believing Edgar had outworked Aldo over the last three rounds.
