Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Featherweight No. 1 contender Frankie Edgar is now officially part of the 145-pound weight class after successfully making weight at today's (Feb. 1, 2013) UFC 156: "Aldo vs. Edgar" weigh-in event at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Edgar told Ariel Helwani of MMA Fighting at Thursday's (Jan. 31, 2013) UFC 156 "Ultimate Media Day" that he was roughly four to five pounds over the 145-pound featherweight limit he made at today's weigh in.

"The Answer" has spent his entire career competing as a lightweight, serving as the division's champion from April 2010 to February 2012. After much debate, the New Jersey native made the decision to drop down to featherweight and received an immediate shot at champion Jose Aldo.

The picture above shows a side-by-side comparison of Edgar's look at the UFC 156 weigh in today compared to his weigh-in for his UFC 150 title fight with Ben Henderson last August.
