Josť Aldo Is the Most Underrated Fighter in UFC

In my opinion Aldo is tied with Anderson for #1 p4p. He has already defended his belt 6 times (including WEC) against some pretty good competition Faber, Edgar, Mendes, Florian, etc. and he's only 26. He has a devastating-entertaining fighting style. He'll probably be the first fighter to hold two belts at the same time in the UFC in the next year or so. He gets recognized as a great champ, but when people talk about the very best fighters in the sport Anderson, GSP, and Jones get all the attention, and Aldo might be more skilled than any of them. Because of his weight class he really doesn't get the respect he deserves even with huge MMA fans. If he keeps it up for the rest of his career he should be in the discussion for GOAT.

It's funny how someone can go from the most loved fighter on here to the most hated fighter on here in a matter of 25 minutes.

He is the most overrated imo. Great fighter but looks very beatable most of the time (unlike Anderson, Jones, or GSP). There are plenty of people who argue that he could clean out 155.

I think most people know, ts. He's a consensus top 4 P4P fighter. Hard to say he's underrated.

I will say aldo is off the casuals radar for how good he is. The ufc doesn't give him enough face time like they do with rousey, Jones and sonnen

Yeah, 95% of us consider him a top 5 p4p fighter and the FW goat, very underrated...

Excellent post, I was going to add that his suspect gas tank will one day spell the end of his streak.

Definitely not underrated. Think he gets the proper attention
