man, ofc i agree with you. when I said Aldo would sweep LW, I never said it would be easy and he wouldnt be taken down in the fights. He will be taken down, even though his TDD is great (dunno whats his rank but certainly a top5). I just dont see who would beat him... Yeah Aldo x Pettis would be top3 fight of the decade, I dont count Pettis out, ofc not, same chances imo. Its just the aldo has that extra something when the time comes.
for instance, aldo x edgar. Man, aldo was faster than edgar... even weighing more and with all the cut he had to do before fight. Can you imagine aldo without weight problems and focusing in his speed/cardio?
dont forget Aldo is originally a black belt bjj... he never had to use it too much cause he destroys people on his feet.
i have been following aldo's career since forever, some friends trained with him and hes a decent and funny guy. A fact some dont know, he already had one fight at LW, it was his only defeat by the way. No reason to deny it. Happened aroud 8 or 9 years ago, he was like 18 or 19 years old, so it doesnt count much
watch his wec fights... yeah competition is harder at ufc, no question, but he is always trying to murder his opponents, thats really scary. He will eventually lose, ofc, but i dont see it hapenning anytime soon.....
