Well Edgar has stepped up making it a pretty quick change down to 145. Its a match MMA tragics will be pumped to see though like many lighter weight matches it may not get the hype and buys it deserves.

I would of preferred Edgar to face the Korean Zombie first so we got to see him at 145 first as there is concern he may lose his speed that he had at 155. 

I think Aldo is a bit over rated and hasn't had a whole lot of competition at 145 but this will certainly be a tough match up. 

Rest of the card isn't that appealing as I don't give a rat's arse about Jackson and Fitch is boring as hell. 

Maia and Story is interesting.

I don't really think this will be close at all, Edgar beat Bendo last time out whos a far superior fighter to Aldo.

Those buzzsaw leg kicks will be a problem just like they were when Bendo did it, but other than that, Edgar should be able to cruise to a fairly easy UD. Aldo's been pretty impressive if you take his age into consideration but his performances have been mediocre, I'd fancy half the 155ers to move down and beat him.

Aldo and Rampage are out w/ injuries, the main event is now Anderson Silva vs Stephen Bonnar (at 205lbs), and Glover Texieria fights Fabio Maldonado instead.

Big Nog/Dave Herman has been added too.
