Frankie Edgar nearly came back from early adversity to beat featherweight champion Jose Aldo, but he simply swayed the momentum too late in the fight to make up the ground he had lost in the initial rounds.
Now, Edgar has lost in three straight title fights and may need to make another move to the bantamweight division in order to remain in title contention. Considering the ease with which he appeared to hit 145 pounds, the 135-pound bantamweight limit shouldn't be out of reach.
That being said, the former lightweight champion would not commit to anything regarding his MMA future following the loss to Aldo.
Instead of looking ahead, let's take a minute to look back at UFC 156 and the best and worst from the entire fight card.
