Care to explain how exactly your boy will "smash Aldo to bits"? I was expecting some more depth in your post, since you've been watching the sport for "a long time". In order to help you with your in depth analysis, just remember this is going to be a 155 Aldo, an entirely different animal.

Honestly I considered Edgar the #1 LW when aldo beat him at 145. If he were to move up to 155 and beat pettis that would be a hell of a career at such a young age.

I think Pettis would finish Aldo in the later rounds after he gasses!

I have to disagree, I think Aldo's cardio will be better at LW due to having to cut way less weight. He'll also be faster than Pettis and is in my opinion a better striker (although Showtime is certainly the flashier striker). I think Aldo wins by tko after a back and forth fight.

It seems like champs fight one time a year anyway so two fights a year shouldnt be that bad
