FULL UFC 156 Results: Aldo Retains Title, Blackzilians Go 0-2 In Potential Title Bids | UFC NEWS


UFC 156 has concluded and the “Super Saturday” event had it’s mix of highs and lows.

The flyweights kicked off the main card with an exciting back and forth bout between Joseph Benavidez and Ian McCall. After three fast paced rounds the Team Alpha Male product did enough to earn a decision victory.

In the second bout, Demian Maia out “Fitched” Jon Fitch, and in what many will consider a lackluster fight, bested the longtime decision stand-out to earn a very one-sided unanimous decision victory.

The return of Overeem hit a road block in the form of Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva and as a result the man once dominant over two-combat sports suffered a TKO loss in the third frame of action. To his credit, “Bigfoot” delivered the only finishing performance on the pay-per-view portion of the card.

The co-main event between Rashad Evans and “Lil Nog” won’t go down in the history books anytime soon, but the Brazilian did enough to earn a judges decision in a fight most won’t remember by the morning.

Finally, in the main event of the evening, Frankie Edgar gave Jose Aldo all he could handle and after a pretty fairly paced five-rounds Aldo did enough to keep his title.

    That was a boring ass card man, holy shit – but Rashad and Little Nog take home honors for their A-1 fackin’ snoozer. I mean what the hell was that?! It didn’t look like two top MMA athletes pitting their skills against each other. it looked like a couple of top end chicken shits, who wanted to win so bad they both forgot to engage. boooooooo

  2. kjtrlt says:

    That was a disappointing card. The co-main was a snore fest, Rashad looked afraid and Nogueria was his usual slow and lumbering. Overeem let his arrogance blow his chances at the title, and the main event was a judging fiasco. Again. So much for one of the best cards of the year. We’ll have to see what the one in Montreal delivers. It’s been a while since a really kick butt card.

      Judging Fiasco?? maybe 48-47 across the board would have been better, but Aldo won that fight. no controversy there.. Aldo did way more damage, and Frankie never had Aldo any sort of trouble. Fightmetrics had Aldo ahead in total strikes landed, plus significant strikes. Total Strikes: Aldo 76, Edgar 63.. Sig Strikes: Aldo 76, Edgar 60..

    • Thom says:

      LOL, Aldo clearly won that fight.. Where u at magoo??

  3. Tony says:

    So glad Frankie lost, now I can stop hearing about him being one of the pound for pound best. 3 losses in a row, he’s gotta work his way up the ladder now.

  4. punchkick says:

    i smell frankie will get another shot at aldo. frankie edgar, king of rematches.

  5. Goku says:

    That wasnt a boring card. U stupid half time fans don’t know how to appreciate mma. All u care is kos. Why dont you stick to watching the highlights after. The rashad vs noguera was boring not gonna lie.they both didnt wanna engaged. But benavidez fight was good. Maia is a beast at welterweight. You can never underestimate big foot. He looks slow but he’s good. Game plan beautifully executed. I was very impressed with how well his team came up and executed that game plan. Take punishment for two rounds but get him tired and in the third go for the kill. And the Aldo fight. He’s just that good. I hope all these people that keep talking shit about the featherweight being boring and Aldo not fighting anyone good stop. Because he beat your little Edgar. I feel bad for the kid though. Where does he stand now. He’s a top contender. But he’s not gonna get another shot at the belt in lightweight or featherweight anytime soon. Aldo vs Pettis …? Any comments on who would win that fight? After the fight Pettis told Dana that he wanted to fight him. And for those people that said weidman didn’t deserve a shot at the GOAT (including me) he might be next in line. And it may happen sooner than we think.

    • Sasquatch says:

      Aldo vs. Pettis should be a barn burner if it ever develops! I’d be putting my $$ on Pettis because I think his striking is better and they’re fairly even on the ground. No doubt Pettis seen some holes in Aldo’s game last night and wants to capitalize on them (leg kicks!). Yeah it’s looking like Weidman next seeing how there’s really no one else with Rashad losing the paddycake match last night.

    I was laughing at FE again for putting his hands up after the fight like he won it. Someone tell him jumping around and throwing combinations that don’t land won’t get you a win.
