Aldo landed a jab early, and Edgar went back to using his leg kicks. The reemergence of Aldo's jab was significant to this round.
Edgar continued to try and put Aldo down, but to no avail. At the halfway point of the round it was Aldo who was landing the clean shots, but Edgar who was coming forward looking for offense. Aldo's counter-striking was doing well.
Edgar got Aldo against the fence and threw a knee that grazed, if anything, Aldo's face. With a little over a minute Aldo landed a good left on Edgar.
Edgar's combinations looked good except for Aldo blocking them. They simply did not connect whereas Aldo's one-shot counters were slipping in and hitting Edgar. Including the Superman punch at the horn. That is where the difference was in the round.
However, it was not a dominant round for Aldo.
