In the main event of UFC 156, UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo will take on former lightweight champ Frankie Edgar.

This could be the most exciting featherweight championship fight in MMA history.
It could also be one of the closest.

While some may believe Aldo's striking alone is enough to give him the edge, Edgar has never been stopped in his MMA career and may be faster than any opponent that Aldo has ever faced.
This fight could go down to the judges.

Here are the reasons why they could have a very difficult decision to make.

These two men will go to war in the Octagon Saturday night.
On paper these two fighters are very similar—using their superior striking to get their opponent on his heels and not being afraid to use the takedown when the opportunity arises—but the aggressive nature of each will have strategies changing.

Both fighters love to push the tempo of the fight with their striking, but something will eventually have to give as both Aldo and Edgar can’t always be attacking simultaneously.

Add in the fact that both veterans can win fighting defensively using counterpunches and takedowns, and this is a brawl that can go either way.

Aldo gets the nod as my predicted winner of this fight by the slimmest of margins. This main event could be an instant classic.

Prediction: Jose Aldo retains UFC Featherweight Championship
