Aldo in the second Holloway is the best version of Aldo we’ve ever seen

    Sherdoggers keep trying excuse Max's success away and Aldo's failures.

    Because Mike Brown and Faber are better strikers than Holloway.

    Fact: the two best strikers Aldo ever faced in his career are the two guys that beat him. I don't think that's a coincidence. He put on a vintage performance against Edgar between those fights.

    What’s silly about him fighting better fighters now than he did in so called prime?

    It says they never ran away from the competition and stayed active.

    You just hate on all brazilians. You shouldn't even be allowed to post.

    So let me get this straight, you criticize GSP for fighting and winning against a one eyed Bisping as though he is not real competition, but credit Rockhold and Silva for stepping up and fighting Bisping.
    The hypocrisy!

    The only thing you have to do is stop using prime as a excuse whenever a fighter you like loses. It is possible to do everything right and still lose

    You can keep yapping as if wrestling defense isn't taxing if you like, but nobody who knows anything about the sport is going to take you seriously.

    No one will take you seriously when you paint their arguments with broad strokes. No one said wrestling isn’t tiring. Aldo has just gotten his defensive wrestling down to a science, and he has a really efficient way of avoiding them with minimal effort, hence him being considered the best anti wrestler to ever exist. Frankie couldn’t push him to work the way Holloway could, because he doesn’t have the range to hit or force Aldo to move at ranges that would otherwise be “safe zones.”

    Use your brain. Things don’t just happen for no reason. There is a reason for everything. Aldo’s cardio vascular strength didn’t just magically vanish into thin air. It’s clearly something that Holloway did. Maybe you would have an argument if it was just one fight; “oh, Aldo was just off.”
    But it happened twice and in the same fashion. There should be no debate. Frankie did it 0/2 times.
    Holloway did it 2/2 times.

    Wayyyyy too much logic here. Training for 5 round fights for years has no effect on the body

    Use YOUR brain. Of course there was a reason. For the first fight Aldo was clearly injured during camp and couldn't work his strength and conditioning program. The second fight was clearly far too soon after the first.

    Lmfao, you’re hopeless.
    I guess you’re right then. Holloway got lucky and finished Aldo in the third round twice. And Edgar was unlucky that he couldn’t mount any offense over two five round fights. That’s the most reasonable answer.
