    He's also only fought 10 times in a UFC career that started over 6 years ago, in 2011.

    For comparison, Donald Cerrone made his UFC debut that same year, but he has 25 UFC fights.

    He's always injured, and if often going to decision is that bad what about GSP or Cruz?

    It's a little different when you're preparing for 5 round championship fights. I love Cowboy but comparing his record to Aldo is apples and oranges.

    GSP in the UFC: stopped his opponent 7 times, stopped twice himself.

    Cruz in the UFC: stopped his opponent once, never stopped himself.

    Aldo fought twice a year, sometimes felt like he was coasting, but probably just being careful.

    It's cool that Cowboy fights 4 times a year but don't pretend he's fighting championship level fighters every single time. Most of his win streaks are made up of either low ranked or unranked fighters. Don't compare his resume to Aldo's.

    Cerrone did stuff like Edson Barboza, 5 round Jim Miller fight, then Eddie Alvarez, all within 6 months. He just doesn't give an F and stays healthy.

    Another interesting fact. Aldo has only ever had title fights in the UFC as well.

    Please. Enough with this crap. Aldo was a great fighter and the best FW to ever fight in the UFC. That includes Conor McGregor and Max Holloway, the two fighters who finished him.

    Weird how Demetrious got a finish in 6 of his last 10 title defences, including Benavidez and Cejudo in under 3 minutes, but still some call him a point fighter.

    Also Aldo was a killer in WEC. He's calculated but still pretty entertaining at times. Plus the Mendes KO was spectacular.

    Cerrone's record is somewhat padded, but he's still fought a ton of top fighters in the UFC:

    • Lawler
    • Masvidal
    • Dos Anjos (x2)
    • Bendo
    • Alvarez
    • Barboza
    • Pettis
    • Nate Diaz


    Aldo's record also has some padding: Lamas, Jung, Florian and Hominick were all essentially gimmes.

    Aldo was nothing special in the UFC.
    point fighting, lack of killer instinct, dying in Hominick fight he should have lost, and disastrous Mcgregor situation, when he shown lack of character and behaved like a little child that took a beating from their parents.

    It's too bad how much of a hit his legacy has been taking the last few years. it would be a different story if he was old but all of this happened in his prime years. Poor fella.
