The most awaited World Extreme Cagefighting 48 happened last April 24, 2010 at the Arco Arena in Sacramento California. The main event for the night was the match between Jose Aldo and Urijah Faber with Aldo defending his title as the WEC Featherweight champ.

Aldo’s first strike of the night happened in the form of a low kickback that slaps Faber’s knee cap. On the second round Faber’s aggressiveness is eminent however still Aldo was able to make him wince with a slapping low kickback. The first two rounds was an advantage for Aldo allowing him to made major damage to Faber’s left leg with leg kicks, forcing him to switch his stand and taking away his legs.

Aldo lands a hard body shot and drops Faber with another kick to the left leg on the 3rd round. For the 4th round, Faber can hardly stand Aldo’s leg kick but Aldo still continued to drop left hands and elbows. In the last round Faber was able to throw a sidekick but most of the round, Faber was on his back and Aldo over him.

The match resulted to a unanimous decision of 49-45, 49-45, 50-45 leaving Jose Aldo as the standing WEC Featherweight champion.
