Like many, I am intrigued and excited by the Aldo V Edgar fight, a five rounder in Las Vegas. Without going over ground already covered in other threads, I wanted to focus on the idea that a potential Aldo weakness is his stamina. He said recently he walks around at 170 and we have heard he had trouble cutting the weight the last couple fights. Finally, he was either sick, exhausted or both in the 5th against Hominick (but was still in no danger of losing the fight). Some have forgotten that Frankie had his own stamina problem in his first fight with Maynard, UFN 13 in Denver. The altitude is always a factor for some, but it was a 3 rounder, not 5, so I am not sure how much blame the altitude deserves. Frankie was controlled and pretty much dominated in the 3d. Maynard took him down a few times and at one point Frankie got up, but seemed ready to collapse on his own accord. Another reason may have been the pressure Maynard applied. In the 2d & 3d rounds he seemed to abandon his reliance on the standup and focused on taking Edgar down, which may have exhausted Edgar. (Strangely, in fights II and III Maynard went back to reliance on the stand up.) Most will still give Edgar the advantage in stamina and some suggest the longer the fight the better Edgar's odds. I think it may depend on Aldo's strategy. We know he is going to try to cripple Edgar with kicks, but I would not be surprised if he turned the tables on the wrestler and took him down. We have seen what Aldo's elbows can do.
