    Hmm don't know if he deserves it after the bs he pulled after the Conor fight. Pretended he never lost, said Conor was on juice etc...

    Why not, when Conor makes it official that he can't come back down to 145, aldo vs cruz would be great, eventhough Holloway has more than earned a titleshot

    If I wanted to see a track meet I would turn to the Olympics.

    It's still THE FIGHT!

    I've been calling for this fight long before Cruz ever got hurt. It would be incredible for it to finally come to fruition.

    You don't think Aldo deserves Dominick? Right, the dude who is top 8 all time doesn't deserve Dominick.

    If anything, this is DOMINICKS opportunity to make his career better by fighting Aldo. Aldo beating Cruz doesn't do much for his legacy except add a good win to his record.

    Great fight to make. I'd take Aldo. I have a very, very hard time stomaching Aldo....but I very much respect and appreciate his talent and ability as a fighter. I would love it if Conor blasted him again but I'd love to see him against Cruz. Great match to make

    I'm sure you would.

    If you wanted to see 2 of the best fighters to ever compete in MMA fight each other, you'd watch Aldo vs Cruz.

    Aldo showing up for a big main event is risky as usual. If they were to fight it would be fun.

    He has lost one time since 2006 and he doesn't deserve it?

    He scared of Pettis...

    No seriously, great fight to make. Glad Aldo is doing the Conor thing.

    The last realistic superfight that we can have in this era.

    Make it fucking happen.

    Aldo via UD. It's verrrry close though. The deciding factor is Aldo's leg kicks, though Cruz loads him up as well but not as damaging. Aldo wobbles Cruz here and there.

    As is Dom. Which is why this match up is oh so compelling.

    Conor moved up 2 classes while Aldo is moving down. His style is perfect against smaller fighters.

    I think Cruz would move up to fight Aldo at featherweight?

    Would love to see this fight. Tough fight, but I would pick Aldo.

    And if Aldo can soundly defeat the LW champ (Edgar) TWICE - I think he could handle the BW champ. Especially since Aldo is a big FW. Though Cruz is a big BW himself, size would be a factor indeed when their skillsets are close. Though even their skillsets alone, Aldo is superior.
