    If I had to bet that money I would probably put it on Aldo

    If I had to bet my money it'd be on Holloway. Holloway's on a 10 fight win streak, he's 25 years old still getting better, he's fought nearly the same level of competition as Jose Aldo yet Max has looked way more dominant in recent years. I think Max can handle Aldo's speed and athleticism too. I think Max want's it more and I think he matches up well with Jose Aldo.

    I really think Holloway could be an all time great. He's one of the most underrated fighters in mixed martial arts by far. The run he's on, at his age, his level of technical skill and physical ability...the natural talent, the hard work ethics, how deceptively athletic and well rounded he is...I knew this kid Holloway was a top 10 level talent since the Bermudez fight...as I thought Holloway won it.

    Jose Aldo has never fought someone with a kicking game as good as Holloway's, the only good long fighter Jose Aldo has ever fought was an emaciated Kenny Florian and it was a close fight, the body work and high pressure Max can put on for 5 rounds vs Jose Aldo's low output and tendency to fade in later rounds...Max is super athletic, great scrambling, amazing takedown defense...I don't think Aldo will be able to keep Max down let alone get the take down to begin with. Max Holloway just does so much well, Jose Aldo is an all time great but I think Max Holloway could be too and it's his time.

    Aldo. Holloway is great, but I have a feeling no one at Featherweight except Conor will be able to defeat Jose. He toyed more or less with a Frankie Edgar that was on a hot streak, and he'll likely do the same against Max.

    Holloway is sloppy as fuck.

    He's going to get picked apart by Aldo on the feet.

    Aldo 49-46. Think Max might steal a round. But hoping we see the return of GOAT legkick machine Aldo.

    Aldo! I liked, No I loved how he looked against Edgar physically & fight fitness. I know that loss to Conor got into him and sometimes bad tasting medicine is what you need. Max Conoway as I like to call him now will be served a heavy diet of chop kicks to keep him honest. Max is not a physically strong 145er Aldo deceptively is a very strong FW

    If Aldo is on point, he is among the top 5 ever imo. So thats where I would put my money, but maybe it's time for a generation change.

    Max will beat him down like Ferg did to RDA. Doesnt mean he will win. Brazil Bias judgement. I cant put money on it due to that just like Brazil has trouble attracting investment I wont.
