UFC 156 will take place from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada with the main card bouts airing live on PPV at 10PM ET.

The main event of Saturday’s card is a bout for the UFC Featherweight Championship with champion Jose Aldo (21-1) defending his title against Frankie Edgar (15-3-1). According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Aldo is the favorite to win this bout, as he has odds of -220 to win, while Edgar has a money line of +180. Edgar is a former lightweight champion and is making his debut at 145 pounds to challenge the dominant champion, Aldo, who has not lost since 2005. Aldo had largely dominated his competition and is considered one of the top fighters in the world, regardless of weight class. Edgar is coming off a pair of close decision losses to Benson Henderson, which essentially put him out of the lightweight title picture. He is now moving down to featherweight, which is probably a better natural fit for him. Still, he has yet to fight at this weight class, so he may have trouble adjusting to the changes against an elite fighter like Aldo.

The co-main event of Saturday’s card is a light heavyweight clash between Rashad Evans (17-2-1) and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (20-5). According to oddsmakers, Evans is the clear favorite to win, as he has odds of -455 to win, while Nogueira has a money line of +355. Both men are solid strikers, while Evans has a solid wrestling game and Nogueira has a black belt in jiu-jitsu. Evans is the better fighter on paper, but Nogueria has knockout power and Evans has been knocked out in the past. The key to this fight will be Evans mixing up his strikes and takedowns, along with staying light on his feet and not allowing Nogueira to land the big punch.
