LAS VEGAS -- Jose Aldo is an interim UFC champion. Now, about Conor McGregor.The longest-reigning titleholder in featherweight history, Aldo rebounded from a shocking 13-second knockout loss to McGregor in December by defeating Frankie Edgar in an interim championship fight at UFC 200 on Saturday at T-Mobile Arena.Aldo (26-2) expertly countered the smaller Edgar, busting him up with jabs, right hands and a beautifully timed knee up the middle. Edgar (20-5-1) kept plugging away at Aldo, but his inability to hurt Aldo with punches or get him to the floor proved to be too difficult to overcome.All three judges had it for Aldo: 49-46, 49-46 and 48-47. ESPN.com scored it 49-46 for Aldo.After the results were read, Aldo, who fights out of the Nova Uniao Academy in Rio de Janeiro, pointed toward McGregor, who was sitting in the front row.I have one goal, to beat this guy, Aldo said. Next time, I will beat him.McGregor (19-3) smiled at Aldo and waved at him after the fight concluded. The Irish star is scheduled to face?Nate Diaz?(19-10) in a welterweight fight at UFC 202 on Aug. 20. McGregor would have?to defend his featherweight title against Aldo next, or likely vacate the belt.Asked about a potential McGregor-Aldo rematch, UFC president Dana White told SportsCenter after Saturdays card, Conor made it very clear at that press conference [this week] hes going to go back down there and defend his title against whoever won [Saturday].Weve got to see what happens in that fight with Nate Diaz -- how he comes out of that fight, is he hurt. Then we can pick the timing of that [McGregor-Aldo] fight.Saturdays fight marked the second time Aldo has defeated Edgar via unanimous decision. The two met at UFC 156 in February 2013 in Las Vegas. History repeated itself, as final scores of that fight were identical to what the judges rendered Saturday.None of the five rounds was a blowout, however, as Edgar utilized his boxing and attacked Aldos legs with kicks at the end of combinations. Aldo, 29, was in phenomenal shape, however. He bloodied Edgars right eye in the second round. In the third, Edgars face started to show swelling.Edgar tried to implement his wrestling, but Aldos takedown defense was too good. Edgar drove into Aldos hips a handful of times, but Aldo was always quick to throw him off. In the fourth round, Edgar showed a willingness to hang in the pocket a little more to force something to happen. Aldo frequently got the better of it.According to instant stats by FightMetric, Edgar came up empty on 11 takedown attempts. Mens/Womens Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Low Black/White AO4606-001 . Following a lopsided 5-2 loss against the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night, Paul MacLean told reporters that "theres a lack of focus, theres a lack of leadership and theres a lack of preparation" with his struggling team.

It was a bit of a job trying to explain R Ashwin was the worlds No. 1 bowler.Fifty-six overs for two measly wickets in Rajkot. How could he do this? That too at the start of a marquee series. Against an opponent who was supposed to read spin bowlers about as well as a toddler reads hieroglyphs. Clearly, this Test has been nothing short of a big smiley face sticking its tongue out at every prediction anyone has ever made about it. England are on top, if you didnt know.So maybe it wasnt surprising that after getting no reward with the ball, Ashwin scored a chanceless, effortless half-century after Indias situation had got as dicey as it ever had in the four days of play so far.Still, he could at least have thrown his bat around and got a few nicks over the slips and third man. Nope. Middled pretty much everything. Played beautiful little late cuts and cover drove like a champion.On the fourth day, the one Indian batsman averaging over 50 misjudged length, hit across the line and was bowled. Another trod onto his stumps. With five and a half sessions left, and a lead of 176 still intact, England had gained a substantial opening. Except, Ashwin stood in the way. Probably just to spite them. Or maybe it was to haul his team out of trouble. You decide whats more plausible.The hallmark of a batsman, it has long been said, is how much time he has to play his shots. The slowness of the pitch lent Ashwin a hand, but the ease with which he was picking good-length balls and manoeuvring them into gaps either side of the pitch was just too much. Sure, his stance is like VVS Laxmans. And yes, some of their shots are similar too. The running, definitely. Now he has gone and taken up the role as the rearguard specialist too?India wouldnt have won in St Lucia without Ashwin the batsman. He made 118 off 297 balls having come in at 87 for 4.dddddddddddd They may yet lose in Rajkot but his 70 off 139 meant that might only happen if Englands bowlers can take 10 wickets in two sessions or so. Considering it has taken four days for the teams to bowl each other out, and with the turn expected of the pitch arriving to the party subdued and fashionably late, India have a good chance of keeping the series level despite trailing for most of it so far.Ashwin showed the magic in his hands every time he played the late cut. He also did the one thing that is inextricably associated with a pure batsman: farming the strike.India lost their ninth wicket in the 156th over. England needed six more overs to bowl them out because Ashwin kept finding a single off the last two balls of an over to make sure he was on strike for the next one. He would exploit Rashids drift by coming down the track and taking the ball on the full to find a single at long-on. He met wide yorkers from Ben Stokes with the open face and steered the ball behind point. He left Mohammed Shami with at best two balls per over.Ashwin was caught on the midwicket boundary going for a six off the last ball of the 162nd over. The field was brought up and offspinner Moeen Ali was bowling around the wicket, cramping him up and reducing the chances of working the ball into a gap. He saw the ball was tossed up, he realised runs were on offer, he backed himself to clear the fielder and he went for it. Hmmm. Thats about as batsman-y as it gets.I really shouldve known better and introduced Ashwin as the worlds No. 1 allrounder averaging 47 in Tests in 2016, a series-defining hundred included.
