Edgar will always be active, but he took hits left, right at center in that match. Aldo isn't as wreckless as his WEC days but he can still get finishes. Can't wait for this fight!

if the only fight you've watched is Aldo vs Hominick, maybe yes.

I'd say Barao and Weidman also have cardio issues, that being said Aldo has shown he can still go all 5 rounds and win easily. He had a bad weight cut once and has adjusted since.

Barao looked fine in the 4th rd against McDonald.

Wasn't he a late replacement against Faber the first time? Might've had something to do with it

It seems like a lot of these "ultra-athletic" fighters such as Aldo, Barao, A. Silva, and a few others lack a deep gas tank. That seems to be the weakness for a fighter that doesn't really have a weakness.

the California Kid was so close to upset Aldo in that 5th round ...

btw Weidman and Rousey are still a question mark
Hendricks showed good cardio the last time, I didn't expect that ... dunno about WW Lawler

I think he cuts to much weight and that hurts him there.

His opponents normally have the best shot at winning in later rounds like Hominick and Edgar
For right now? yes.

If Hendricks wins on March 15th, then he will take over that spot.
