ya see. that's your perception at work. reality is A.E. didn't really have THAT many impressive wins. Struve had some plus moments too. Would Aleks have beaten Stipe? possibly on a good day like struve did if he fought him early on. Look I don't know who would win ... but I have no idea why you "can say for sure". In the long run, you fight 10 good guys and once and a while you beat a couple if you are decent. Dilute the talent in 2 orgs, you win more, add that to a couple of quality wins and look better. All I'm sayin' here.
