    since that's the prime Aldo or the Aldo that use his leg kicks more according to his fans, so do you think the outcome would be different?

    Conor and Max destroy him at any time in his career lol

    Dude was in his absolute prime when he was fighting them, he just got exposed when he's forced to lead or someone puts a pace on him.

    Conor gets into the head of any version of Aldo and sleeps him. The rematch may be a different story though, as Aldo would learn from his mistake and probably mix in a few takedowns as well.

    As for Holloway, prime Aldo (who had a fantastic chin) would leg kick him silly. Max isn't good at checking leg kicks, nor is he a particularly powerful puncher; him dropping Aldo all those times was a sign that Aldo's chin has severely regressed after the Mendes war and Conor KO loss.

    No, they're just more evolved fighters.

    The cage is smaller, so Conor would ko him quicker because he wouldnt have to move as far

    Conor knocked him out with the first punch he threw. He was too emotional from Conor's mind games and played right into his plan. Maybe in a rematch Aldo would be more patient, but that first fight happened because Aldo wanted to teach Conor a lesson and got caught.

    WEC Aldo is way more wild and defensively open than the UFC Aldo, its not even close. I wouldnt be surprised if Conor KO'd him in 6 seconds.

    Holloway would just style on him like the 2 times.

    As amazing as the 13 second KO was, it never really showed us anything we didn't already know.

    All that fight told us is Conor hits hard and fast. If Aldo didn't walk into it who knows how it would've went. After the two Holloway fights I'm inclined to think Conor would've eventually finished him anyway but shit man, maybe Aldo would've fucked him up and imagine what the MMA world would be like then

    The UFC provided Conor with the platform to run his mouth against Aldo and get in his head. Would the outcome have been different if they hadn’t had the media tour? Who the fuck knows, but you can’t deny that it didn’t effect him. Had they fought with out all the distractions, maybe Aldo would have won. But he didn’t and you can’t fault the guy for being able to mentally break his opponent before they even step in the cage. And I’m not even a fan of Conor, I’m more indifferent towards him. Regardless it was a nice knockout...

    WEC Aldo only looked more spectacular because he was fighting lesser competition. That Aldo is the same one that fought Mendes, KZ, Lamas, etc....in WEC, he was just fighting the Manny Gamburyans of the world. He wasn’t some mythical creature.

    Nah he definitely changed up his style to be more defensive, as well as become more boxing orientated. Manny was probably his worse defense but that doesn't mean he was fighting bums, Mike Brown and Faber are great wins.

    Aldo was in his prime around 2013.

    Maybe he beats Max

    Vs McGregor he was too emotional

    They both have reach on him too. Leg kicks might not work
