    Just put my tickets up for sale. Aldo is the only person I didn’t want to see in that spot.

    Yes but apparently you don't remember what happened: Conor rematch was at a higher weight class, no belt on the line and only a couple of weeks after aldo's medical suspension was up. How did you remember it?

    I was thinking the same thing. Aldo mentioned that some months ago- that he wants to fight out of his contract, and pursue other ventures (including Boxing and even Soccer). Does anyone have any idea how many fights he has left under his contract?

    This is a perfect situation for Aldo. He is not going to be able to over train, overthink, and he has nothing to lose. He should go in for the kill, like a starving wild animal.

    If I am seeing it right Jose Aldo is coming off a
    loss to Max Holloway in Brazil back in the month
    of June so it is a rematch that makes that makes
    very little since at this point.

    For someone like Holloway, maybe it's just as well. I imagine he does have the need to demonstrate that the first win wasn't just the stars aligning for him. Best case scenario for him would be if Aldo goes in understanding he has nothing to lose, actually uses leg kicks and the fight plans that made him so dominant as FW champ and Holloway overcomes him twice. That would help remove any doubt that Cub Swanson, as an example, would have much of anything for him.

    Love Aldo, but not a fan of this fight.
    I don't like new champs immediately rematching against guys they just beat. Their legacy shouldn't be defined by a former champ, and if Aldo wins then you have to do the trilogy.
    Id much rather let Cub or Lamas step in instead

    You guys saying Cub or Lamas are completely fucking insane. I mean what the hell... do you even believe the nonsense you are typing?

    Those gatekeepers geting a shot at Max 'because streak' over Aldo, the division's greatest champion AND someone who dominated said gatekeepers and unlike them, gave Max a proper fight?
