    Barao would not beat Aldo.
    Aldo COULD beat Pettis.
    Pettis would not beat Hendricks.
    Hendricks would not beat Weidman.
    Weidman would probably lose to Jones.
    Jones would not beat Cain.

    He's also beaten the former 2x LW champ in Edgar all the while holding the belt. No one else has this claim. No one.

    Aldo is easily P4P numero uno.

    I dunno man.

    Weidman is pretty good at beating lanky "explosive" fighters who have lots of hype and an aura of invincibility.


    Barao could very well beat Aldo.

    Fact: This is all speculative, hypothetical bullshit.

    And Barao would have a very reasonable chance vs Aldo.

    Barao could totally beat Aldo. Would be an awesome fight we'll never see.

    Aldo would starch Barao. Better boxing, better wrestling, better jitz.

    Also has the size advantage.

    I agree with others that Barao has a reasonable chance to beat Aldo, and most of the other weight classes are separated by more weight so it is harder to make the same claim for guys like Weidman, Jon Jones, and Hendricks.

    Barao's chance of beating Aldo > Aldo's beating Pettis... easily.

    If there is no proof of that statement it's not a fact.

    Aldo would definitely be the favorite vs Pettis.

    What? Of course he does. This is no secret. Aldo is a better wrestler and jiu-jitsu player than Pettis, and is about as good standing.
    Yep, he has more of a chance than people think, love that guy. His technique is just outstanding, one of the best strikers in the UFC for sure.
    But, I would still stake a significant amount of vcash on my man, Anthony Showtime Pettis.

    Yes.

    Thanks for providing your deep insight. But Edgar almost beat Aldo and Hominick even had his moments late in that fight.

    Pettis finishes him standing, mark my words.
