No question Aldo very clearly won the fight as a whole, but I had Edgar taking the 4th and 5th, and an argument could be made that he took the 3rd. I'm glad it wasn't controversial though because I'd rather see Aldo-Pettis than an Aldo-Edgar rematch.
I'm thinking timing has everything to do with Pettis wanting Aldo. With Bendo/Melendez scheduled for late April, Pettis would have to wait quite a long time before getting a crack at the LW belt. Plus, waiting around hasn't exactly worked wonders for him in the past.
