UFC 156 takes place today and features a stacked card. In the main event, Frankie Edgar will look to reclaim championship glory when he takes on Jose Aldo. Both of these fighters are pound-for-pound greats, which should be a real treat for the fans. It will be interesting to see how well Edgar does since he is fighting in his natural weight class. A lot is on the line for both fighters, so it is important that they have a good showing.
Rashad Evans will lock horns with Rodrigo Nogueira, who is a Pride veteran with exceptional boxing skills. The winner of this bout puts their name right in the mix in the light heavyweight division, which is currently being reigned by Jon Jones.
Jon Fitch will get back in action against world class jiu jitsu star Demian Maia. Since dropping down to the welterweight division, Maia has rattled off two consecutive victories. A win over Fitch would be huge, and vice verse for Fitch if he is able to defeat Maia.
