    Hell yeah. Really fun fight. And now that Aldo isn't protecting his belt he might actually show up the first time it's scheduled.

    Aldo wrecks him if he's not completely shot.

    an excellent test to gauge where Aldo is these days...while a win over Aldo would be HUGE for Stephens, putting him right into the title picture.

    tough to call. what have those losses to Max taken out of Aldo? how does Stephens handle a big step up in competition (and potentially in Brazil)?

    if Aldo goes back to pressuring with diverse striking that includes a lot of leg kicks, I think he at least wins a decision...but if he is tentative and more one-dimensional, then I think Stephens finds Aldo's chin at some point.

    I still wish Aldo would move up to 155...the cut to 145 seems pretty brutal for him.

    Yea sorry I meant like someone like super boy again.

    Give him another high light reel KO fight or give him the TS after Ortega.

    Maybe have him on stand by for holloway/Ortega?

    Aldo just wants to finish his contract as quickly as possible, specially if he can fight in Rio, so he's calling out a guy who's known to fight anybody.
    But the obvious fight for the next TS is Elkins vs Stephens.

    Aldo could fight KZ again, who KOed Bermudez on his return.

    I don't see the point of the aldo fight, don't give aldo the chance to kill of a contender as long as Holloway is champ.

    Fuuuuuck no!!!

    Being a huge Aldo no just no he has no chin left and Jeremy is on a roll.

    Aldo needs to retire not fight a hungry guy in his prime who is arguably the hardest hitter in the division.

    correct, but I guess you could say the Edgar fights were "close" or at least fairly competitive. prior to that yes, he usually dominated

    and that Chad/Aldo fight was glorious. one of the best fights of the year iirc. pretty sure it took years off both their careers.

    Not at all. Stephens has a good chance of knocking him out especially first two rounds. Aldo should win though.

    No, he already did the military service. He tore the ligaments in his knee last summer, still rehabbing.

    I love Aldo, but he will be the victim of a TKO. Dude is shop-worn and way past his prime. He's young in age, ancient in fight years. Stephens has had a lot of fights, but now seems to be hitting his peak.
