Edgar's problem is very simple, he is not threatening. At no point in that fight did I EVER feel as if Aldo was "in trouble" or "hurt". Edgar bounces around and scores points, but this is a fight and when you are cringing 2 or 3 times a round when Aldo lands something serious, Edgar's pitty-patty punches and kicks don't have that much effect on your opinion of the fight.

Aldo knocked Edgar down multiple times with Leg Kicks.
Aldo kicked Edgar in the face
Aldo was snapping Edgar's head back with jabs
Aldo jumped off the cage and punched Edgar in the face to close the fight.
Aldo stuffed almost all Frankie's takedowns, a few times leaving frankie falling to the mat on his stomache
When Frankie did score a takedown, Aldo was up in a matter of seconds.

Edgar made the fight interesting, for sure, but saying he "deserved" to win that belt is ridiculous.
Excellent points.

So, word on the street is that Aldo is outright refusing the fight. Says that Pettis doesn't deserve it.

Dana said Aldo will fight Pettis or he's not going to like the way this turns out. He's absolutely refusing right now.

I can understand where Aldo is coming from and it will hold up the division further if Pettis moves down and gets the title shot
