    ... I think Mendes has a better chance to beat McGregor. I just rewatched Aldo vs Mendes 2 and I thought Mendes maybe won the last 3 rounds. Anyways, after the fight he called out McGregor! And he said "i'm still looking forward to whooping your ass one day buddy".

    There's no way Mendes won rounds 3 or 5. The best you can give him is 2 and 4. He definitely won round 4, and round 2 was extremely close. Sure he rocked Aldo in round 3, but then Aldo dropped him and kept him retreating for the rest of the round. In round 5 Aldo outworked him after the first minute or so.

    I'd pick both of them to beat McGregor.

    Lord if he beats Aldo...... He'll never shut up about it lol. Aldo will behearing about it for years, like George with Serra. The top 5 beat up McGregor pretty bad in my opinion.

    But the thing is, he doesn't beat Aldo. This is a crazy sport and anything can happen, but I just don't see that happening.

    I gave Chad round 3 (maybe) and 4 (definite) but both are close as shit. No way he won the 5th

    This. Reminds me of Jones after beating Shogun. "This is the guy to beat him." " No this is the guy!!"

    Stylistically, Mendes and Edgar should be able to murder Conor seven days a week.
