    Title says it. He would be the FW goat, and if he successfully moves to BW, and becomes champ, then god damn, he's up there with AS and JJ and GSP.

    Lol no

    Imagine GSP being 0-2 against Hughes

    Or Jones being 0-2 against DC

    Aldo getting murked three times by the only two elite strikers he ever fought is a death sentence for any GOAT consideration.

    Lol nice try, too bad he's already cememted as the FW GOAT. Max could well claim that title one day, but not yet.

    Not even close, Aldo is yet to fail any drug tests he has a lot of catching up to do with those guys.

    If Aldo beats Moraes then goes on to beat Cejudo he is the GOAT.

    13 seconds + 0-2 against a one dimensional fighter

    = GOAT

    My prediction is kidney failure by knockout in round two

    People blame Conor for the modern shit-show but I think Aldo is the one who started the trend of the Champion holding up whatever division he was heading up.

    He seems a really decent dude and he's a hell of a fighter I can't really put my finger on why I don't like him.

    There have always been shenanigans around his training camps and some of his "injuries" always looks strategic to me especially If the challenger was coming in a bit too hot.

    You mean if he beats Cejudo who is the 125 lb champ? No. I don't see how you get points for failing multiple times in your own division and dropping down a weight class to fight smaller guys late in your career because you're losing to the elite fighters at your natural weight...especially when you publicly state that it's a hard cut and make a decision to cut an additional 10 lbs to fight.

    I don't think Aldo will do well at 135 anyway. He's too old to make an even bigger weight cut and be successful. I expect him to look drained and like complete crap. Maybe before the iv ban he could've done it, but I just don't see it working out well for him at this point.

    No, he got beat 4x in his own division, with no aveneges in any of them. Chooses to move down (already a significant weight cutter) instead of up to a far more competitive division

    A division he ruled over for 6+ years, with 9 title defenses?

    He have less title defense than GSP SILVA and JONES and some others if i remember well

    Got KO'ed stiff by Conrad in 12 seconds, got beat the shit out of him by the actual champ, twice (Conrad beat both of them)

    He is for me, at best, the FW goat, at worse, one of the best FW who ever compete, but nothing more than that

    Aldo is not on the P4P goat debate anymore alongside Jones, GSP and Silva since Conrad broke his championships wins streak and letting him to "only" 7 if i remember well, when Jones and GSP have more than 10 if i remember well

    I love Aldo but let's be honest, other fighters on other weightclass have achieved a little more than him (which is insane considering how much Aldo did in this sport)
