Rivalries and trash talk are fun. They get people interested and emotionally invested in a fight. But sometimes people let their emotions get the better of themselves and say things that are disrespectful, but more importantly, clearly untrue, to prop up the fighter they support, and knock their rival down. McGregor has had a remarkable and exciting run through the FW division, but some posters still refuse to give him more credit than being a "hype train" and a good talker. And the treatment of Aldo has been even worse. With the way many posters casually say that Aldo has no chance against McGregor, you'd think Aldo was another Siver or Brimage instead of a P4P great, and future legend. Sherdog isn't usually a place for reasonable discussion, but I think right now is when I've seen the intelligent analysis : 1 liner posts and insults ratio at its absolute lowest. Let's try to discuss fights more rationally. McGregor has proven himself to be a great fighter and deserves a title shot. Aldo is one of the best fighters ever. Both of them provide difficulties for the other, and neither will clearly destroy the other. I think these are things almost all of us can agree upon if we admit it. Otherwise the odds would not be as close as they are. Personally, I think Aldo takes the fight by decision. He has no real weaknesses and will be able to adapt to McGregor's striking (perhaps after weathering an early storm) by mixing it up with kicks, TDs, and perhaps dirty boxing and out-grind McGregor. But, of course, this is open to debate. That is the point of a discussion forum, not constant 1 line posts that offer no analysis besides "you're wrong and I'm right."
