(This story appeared in Friday's edition of USA TODAY.)

Despite a pair of disappointing losses to current UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson, former titleholder Frankie Edgar (14-3-1 MMA, 9-3-1 UFC) will now get his shot at history.

USA TODAY Sports and MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) have learned that an undisclosed injury has forced Erik Koch (13-1, 2-0) to withdraw from a planned UFC 153 title fight with current featherweight champion Jose Aldo (21-1, 3-0), and Edgar has agreed to step into the evening's main event.

Edgar now looks to join UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture and Hawaiian superstar B.J. Penn as the only men to hold UFC championships in two different weight classes.

I think this will be a cool fight but TKZ would have been much better imo.

If Edgar losses that's 3 in a row, obvs he wont get cut but damn who would have thought that a year ago.

I agree. But Frankie/Aldo is where the money is at

That's crap.

A big slap in the face to everyone else who's been fighting at FW.

i have no problem with this at all. i like the idea of title shots being earned, but this is arguably 2 of the top 10 p4p fighters we have. i'll make the exception

I think he stands a better chance of beating Henderson than he does beating Aldo.

I'm fine with it since he's stepping in as a replacement.

WAR FRANKIE!

Then when Edgar loses, Dana will say Edgar should drop to 135.
