UFC 200 finally unfolded last night (Sat., July 9, 2016) live on pay-per-view (PPV) from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. In a rematch between former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) champions, Featherweight legend Jose Aldo entered the Octagon for the first time since losing to Conor McGregor in 13 seconds at UFC 194, locking horns (again) with the formidable and rapidly-evolving Frankie Edgar.
Unfortunately for Edgar, who came into the interim 145-pound title fight on a five-fight winning streak, Aldo looked better than ever. He displayed incredibly takedown defense, punishing combinations, great timing, consistent movement and solid counters inside. Aldo busted Edgar up, bloodied his face, handily captured the unanimous decision victory and once again hoisted UFC gold (albeit a “fake” belt).

The victory for Aldo lines him up to face McGregor in a rematch after “Notorious” takes another crack Nate Diaz at UFC 202 on Aug. 20, 2016.
