Jose Aldo 5'7 Orthodox 145lbs 28 70.0 25-1 Conor Mcgregor 5'9 Southpaw 145lbs 27 74.0 18-2 This is a very interesting match up. I believe both have their ways to wins Striking: Even. Boxingislife the asskisser may disagree but this is even. Aldo has some of the best feints and his head movement in the first 3 rounds is scary as hell. Conor is no slacker here either. The way he makes his victim over-commit is amazing and his striking is accurate as hell. This gif is one of the his rare clean kos. Grappling: Aldo. Having a black belt in luta livre esportiva and BJJ is no joke. To all those assholes that don't think aldo has world classs BJJ because he doesn't have many subs. BJJ involves top control and much more stuff. Power: I am breaking this up. Hands: Conor easily. Aldo has power here but not like conors. Kicks and Knees: Aldo Irony is the gifs both involve money going down. Cardio: Mcgregor. I don't know how this is possible he cuts almost twice that aldo does. Aldo slows down but he has heart. Confidence: Even I would have said differently if this fight took place at the time of 189. Conor looks offended when he faced adversity in the mendes fight. Aldo has the heart of a champion. Speed: Aldo easy. He strikes incredibly fast. Conor is not slow but compared to aldo he is. Footwork: Conor. Aldo is more stationary that could be bad for him. X-factors: Aldo: The leg kicks from hell. Yes I know conor is a southpaw but he doesn't check kicks that often. You take the footwork of conor away. You take the power away from him. Conor's fucking left hand. He may have TKO power but that left can turn the tide like the mendes fight. I see this going 3 ways : Aldo by Decision Mcgregor by Late round TKO or this fight doesn't happen at all. I hope either of the first two happen instead.
