Jose Aldo has been considered amongst the pound-for-pound best, but he surely moved up a notch or two on the list after defeating former UFC lightweight champ Frankie Edgar at UFC 156 on Saturday night.
It was a tough fight with Edgar taking him bell to bell, but Aldo had to admit, while Edgar is a very tough fighter, the toughest fight on his resume was former WEC champion Urijah Faber.
That’s no slight of Edgar, whom Aldo had nothing but respectful words for.
