    Aldo because of all the title defenses. Also more finishes and a dominant reign over a division for a prolonged period.

    And of course beating Frankie

    I think the quality of the opponents is what matters, not if there is a belt on the line.

    edgar, penn, maynard and bendo were beasts in their prime. Plus Edgar was an undersized LW

    Before aldo lost 3 of his last 4 by stoppage, aldo! But now Frankie

    Their top ten wins are the same -9

    I know some people will say aldo winning 2 fights heads up gives him the edge, but I thought the first was a draw and aldo barely won the 2nd*

    In terms of resume it's damn close imo. I think a lot of fans have a hard time looking at Frankie's career as a whole given that he split it in two separate divisions and was great in both. I'd give Aldo the edge because of his two fights with Frankie.

    Aldo

    They are(after the back to back losses)almost toe to toe but Aldo beat Frankie twice and was defending tittles non stop,a much more hard job then just challenging for it.

    Edgar has finished Mendes, Rodriguez, Penn, Maynard and Swanson and has never been finished himself.

    Penn got fucking robbed that first time. Nevertheless, title defenses matter.

    Why it is much more hard? A fight is a fight.

    Is Hominick a better win for Aldo than Mendes for Edgar, because Hominick was a title defense?
