Aldo vs McGregor is just like Luke Rockhold meeting Anderson in his prime.

    Luke Rockhold is really good striker with decent wrestling and better than average submissions. Him facing Anderson would've been a good stand up fight that he would eventually lose. Same thing with Aldo vs McGregor. McGregor is great, a shade or two off Aldo though.

    For me, Connor is the Anderson Silva here, if he beats Aldo.

    I'd put Lukes striking where Conors grappling is, and Conors striking where Luke's grappling is.

    Anderson in the prime was ahead of where aldo is now. More diverse striking, much better cardio, although lacking more in the TDD. Anderson would've been a huge favorite, Luke having 0 chance in most peoples eye's, while Aldo is slightly favorite. Lot of people think Conor can win.

    Why do people insist on making awful comparisons.

    None of them are even remotely alike.
