Jose Aldo vs. Frankie Edgar is back on.
According to UFC president Dana White, the highly-anticipated featherweight title fight will take place on the promotion's Super Bowl Saturday card next year, slated for Feb. 2, 2013, in Las Vegas. The news was first reported on FUEL TV's "UFC Tonight."
The card will be dubbed UFC 156, not UFC 157, which has been misreported by other outlets, according to UFC officials.
The 145-pound superfight, as some have called it, was supposed to take place at UFC 153 earlier this month, however, Aldo pulled out due to a leg injury suffered in a motorcycle accident. Aldo (21-1) hasn't fought since he knocked out Chad Mendes at UFC 142 back in January.
Edgar (14-3-1), who will be making his UFC featherweight debut, is coming off two straight lightweight title losses to Benson Henderson earlier this year.
