In the main event of the evening, Jose Aldo will defend his featherweight championship against division debutante Frankie Edgar in what the promotion is billing a "super-fight." Rashad Evans could be fighting for a middleweight title shot in a light heavyweight bout against Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in the co-main event of the evening while Alistair Overeem is most certainly fighting for one at heavyweight earlier in the evening against Antonio Silva.
Big things poppin, Maniacs.
Let's get it started.
