    He's racked up one of the most impressive win streaks in recent memory and is on the verge of taking over one of the best divisions at a rather young age. Do you think of him as a prodigy, and if not would beating Aldo do the trick for you?

    I haven't really seen his fights. Saw the Conor one ages ago but can't remember it. Saw tiny bits of the Lamas fight and Lamas was doing better than I thought he would. Was impressed at what he did to anthony pettis though. He needs to be tested against the likes of Aldo, Frankie, Chad, and a Conor rematch for him to be a prodigy.

    It's too early for prodigy.

    Since Conor ain't coming back, Aldo is his chance to prove himself elite.

    As in P4P elite, future ATG at the division etc. He's already out of the prospect category and is already legit, but Aldo is the guy he has to face to prove who's who you know ?

    Mendes has been beaten by all of the other three and got caught for drugs, so I think we can take his name off the list.

    And Aldo is running scared and probably won't even show up.

    Lol in that case "the new Prodigy" may only have to fight Frankie to stake his claim as the FW king.

    If he beats Aldo then yes, however thats a very big IF.

    There's only one prodigy, and that was BJ Penn.

    But he is a great fighter, and I love watching his ascension to greatness.

    ...but he is cringe-worthy to listen to... I wish he would STFU sometimes... I would be more of a fan!! :oops:
