Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar both would have loved a crack at featherweight champion Conor McGregor. McGregor is tied up seeking revenge against Nate Diaz at welterweight, however, so Aldo and Edgar settled for a rematch for the interim featherweight title.
The bout was part of the main card of the UFC 200 event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. It aired on pay-per-view following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.
Aldo (26-2 MMA, 8-1 UFC) fought brilliantly, sitting back and countering every attempt by Edgar (20-5-1 MMA, 14-5-1 UFC) to gain an edge offensively. As the fight wore on, Aldo increased his effectiveness, picking Edgar apart en route to a unanimous decision win by scores of 49-46, 49-46, and 48-47.
