Veteran official Steve Mazzagatti has been selected to referee the main event between Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar for the UFC featherweight title. The bout is set for February 2 at UFC 156: Aldo vs. Edgar.
Mazzagatti has been called out numerous times by UFC president Dana White for his decisions inside the Octagon. The judges selected for the fight by the Nevada Athletic Commission will be Adelaide Byrd, Jeff Collins and Junichiro Kamijo.
Edgar (14-3-1) will be making his 145-pound debut after wearing the UFC lightweight title. Aldo (21-1) returns for the first time since last January, when he knocked out Chad Mendes in Brazil.
