    Jose Aldo has the best TDD in featherweight. No chance to take him down and submit him. Ortega also dont use trash talk, so Aldo would have cold head and base his striking on counter-punching, so Ortega would be not able to KO him.

    What do you think?

    Yes, it Looks that way, but the true is, you never know.
    Aldo is past his prime, look at what happened to Franky...

    Isn't Max just a better version of current Aldo? Maybe slightly worse TDD, but 4" taller and crisper hands.

    no way
    even though he got beat twice, Aldo is more complete and not that brash with his striking imo

    I think Ortega switches up camp to work on his trash talk to gets the W

    Prime Aldo displayed some incredible BJJ and I think Ortega would have a hard time submitting him. Also, his legkicks are still some of the most powerful in the division. Also a factor to consider.

    Ortega would submit Aldo.

    Delusion Aldo fans are the same as Shogun fans.
    They have no idea their fighter is over the hill.

    But Ortega loves to lose standing till he gets lucky or his opponent tired.
    Aldo loves to get tired in round 4.

    So Aldo lights Ortega up and loses in round 5 via ellbow or sub

    No point having powerful kicks if you don't use them.

    Ortega finishes a gassed Aldo late in the fight.

    Ortega doesn't pressure enough to make Aldo wilt. If you let him set the pace, Aldo is a terrible matchup for anyone. His style changed a bit though, he is more of a boxing guy rather than a left hook low kick guy

    True. But they're still in his arsenal. I do think Ortega would win though. I think he beats Max too.

    I don't know. Ortega is a big dude with sick grappling. I think he could get Jose down but it's a great fight.

    Aldo beats every featherweight not named Max Holloway.
