I have read quite a few posts saying how UFC Aldo is some play it safe, watered down version of WEC Aldo, and that he only fights to not lose. I am guessing it is because he has only 2 finishes in the UFC, but when you consider his actual performances in UFC fights and who he has fought, I don't see how the point-fighter criticism holds up. His UFC fights: 1) Hominick - UFC debut - was ill all week running up to the fight and had a bad weight cut, yet he still dropped Hominick several times and beat his face into a pulp. Props to Hominick who showed incredible heart. Also, that was Hominick at his best, seeing as generally fighters train their hardest for title fights. 2) Florian - fought super defensively, and looked to try and wall and stall Aldo as his gameplan. This made Florian, who was already very hard to finish, even harder to finish, seeing as he was in a defensive shell all night. 3) Mendes - was getting stuffed and beat up by Aldo en route to getting KTFO in the final second of Round 1. 4) Edgar - one of the best fighters on the planet, period. Technically brilliant in all aspects, and has always shown tremendous heart, along with never being finished in his entire career. Aldo also beat him up, although this was the closest fight of Aldo's career, and there is no shame whatsoever in having a close fight with Frankie. 5) Korean Zombie - Aldo injured his foot in the first round, so lost a big weapon. Nevertheless, he got the finish in a tough fight with a tough opponent, even though it was in unfortunate circumstances 6) Lamas - From Round 2 onwards, Aldo threw beautiful combinations in an absolute masterclass performance. Aldo threw pure power in his punches and kicks, and looked for several submissions, but Lamas showed great resilience. Cannot be said that Aldo did not go hunting for the finish on several occasions. On the evidence of all of these fights, it cannot be said that Aldo has become a point-fighter. I guarantee we will see Aldo finish Mendes again, regardless of how great Mendes has looked, provided that Mendes comes out looking to finish too.
