The best you can say is that Pettis edged him in striking, and I even think that's a stretch.
Part of why people don't take Aldo down is because he does so well in positioning to prevent that. The only guys who have been able to have been mostly wrestlers, and Hominick in the 5th round when Aldo was gassed.
