    This uppercut couldn't get any cleaner, crazy how Aldo just shrugged it off. Granted, that fight took a toll on both fighters, instant classic

    Its always funny when retards act like they can tell the exact impact and force of certain punches.

    You can see the look on Chat face of disbelief after he landed that shot too.

    Kind of hard to see with the frame rate on that gif. Not all punches that land flush are created equal.

    JK. That was a nasty shot when it happened.

    BOTH guys ate huge shots in that one. It was a nasty, back & forth war.

    I'm wondering if that fight broke Aldos chin for good.

    How hard was that later punch if his reach is only 5'6. You need a better angle to know if that was a big hit.

    Sorry but just like the World Cup, that honor belongs to a European (and these are not manlets)

    Great war. Aldo and Mendes were never the same.

    Aldo ate some pretty brutal shots in that fight.

    Also one of the most underrated fights of all time. That was an awesome match. Doesn't get enough props around here. That said, seems like more people prefer shitting on Aldo these days than ever.

    Whats ridiculous is that his chin might still be in its prime.

    Looks more like good reflexes on Aldo’s part the way he straightened his head up to roll with that uppercut.

    Jose ate some mean shots in the UFC. All those wars did a number on him.
