    This tells us one of two things

    Aldo is scared of the damage that the damage will inflict in the late 3rd round....

    Or... Aldo doesn't feel that the damage is worthy of a call out


    What a bum

    The fight makes sense. That's what I love about Aldo. Lost his title to McGregor, came back and fought. Lost his belt to Holloway, wants to come back and fight. He's not giving up anytime soon. Some fighters lose their belts then they go in to "mmehh" mode meaning they just want to fight and collect a check instead of getting back to the title.

    Much respect.

    I'm tellin' y'all, Jose has not gotten worse, he has beat everybody he was supposed to and lost too the new breed. Jose is very likely still the second best (third behind Conor) feather in the world and very likely beats Mendes, Frankie, Ortega, Stephens, Lamas, etc at this point.....heck, Jose likely beats Jose from a few years ago, the game just advances at insane leaps and Jose went from a massive featherweight to a medium sized one in the span of four years.

    Ortega vs Holloway will happen in June or July IIRC. That would be too long of a layoff for Stephens... If he wants to solidify his status as #1 contender this fight makes sense.

    This seemed like a good match up after Stephans last fight. Aldo has the skillset to win and before his encounters with Holloway, this would be an easy victory....

    If Aldo isn't broken (like Barao), easy win, if he is broken, prepare for a sad downfall.

    Balls on Aldo. Stephens will come after him and kill or be killed. I have a bad feeling for Jose.

    Just wanted to add to the consensus that I want this fight to happen. If Stephens wins, he cements his place as a title contender and we basically know its over for Aldo. Aldo wins, he gets to spoil the party and hang for a bit longer.

    Props to Aldo for being so ambitious but Stephens is going to end him.

    Very winnable for Jose. Styles always make fights. Even in his improved state, Stephens is highly HIGHLY catch-able and a Technician like The GOAT could find that chin on more than one occasion en route to a finish or decision.

    YEEEEEEESSSSSSS

    Huge respect to Aldo, but I'll be rooting for Stephens because that'll be a crazy upset.
