Aldo, whose last trip inside the Octagon ended in an embarrassing first-round KO at the hands of McGregor in December, looked rejuvenated on Saturday night, putting together a fantastic performance to stop Edgar’s five-match winning streak.
Entering this interim featherweight title fight, these two fighters are moving in opposite directions.
Aldo’s last trip to the Octagon lasted all of 13 seconds, as the former champion was knocked out in stunning fashion by Conor McGregor.
Edgar, on the other hand, has won five in a row ever since a three-fight losing streak in 2012 and early ’13. The most recent of those victories came via first-round KO of Chad Mendes in December, a showing that earned him Performance of the Night.
