That's why the Fedor, Silva and GSP of this world are considered GOATs.

I bet fighting with only 1 hand is harder

Because it's stupid.
Every fighter who becomes champ event quickly realizes how fleeting that privilege actually is and more importantly the $$$$$ is.

You either fight smart and make that money or you give the just bleed crowd what they want and you retire poor if at all.
+1 for the smart fans .

I think Aldo finishes Lamas. Plus, all of his fights in the UFC have been pretty entertaining, IMO.

His Cardio is his weak link (it's not even that bad). He's pacing himself against the best competition FW can offer. Also, he always win decisively.

I think Aldo's talents and accomplishments kind of work against him. Similar to the way whenever anyone plays Barcelona, they go full defensive. People are onto the ability of Aldo and are changing the way they fight to minimise openings for him. They're fighting more conservatively, and I think Aldo is also fighting a little more conservatively which when the two factors combine make for longer fights.
