Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Anderson Silva might not be fighting Georges St-Pierre or Jon Jones anytime soon, but MMA fans are still getting a superfight in the form of the UFC 156 main event between featherweight champion Jose Aldo and former lightweight titleholder Frankie Edgar.

On Saturday, that matchup will come to fruition at 145 pounds instead.
