As usual Aldo is getting a small amount of coverage in the mma media. I think about 80% of fighters, mma media in general had Jeremy Stephens picked as the winner, maybe 70% at UFC on fox 30. The betting odds favorite was Jeremy Stephens (15 -13 ufc record) a good match-up for Aldo. Stephens a slower less versatile striker especially compared to Conor McGregor, Max Holloway and Aldo himself. Holloway and Mcgregor the only men Aldo ever encoutered that got the better of him in striking fight in any competitive format. How anyone would look at Aldo's body of work and come to the conclusion that Stephens was a better striker seems to be short memories, or just counting someone out. A couple of fights is enough to change peoples whole outlook on someones career. What did happen is Aldo had of course the most famous one punch mma KO loss in history in a super viewed event and then got bested by the young lion(Holloway) in two wars that Aldo won rounds 1 and 2 in both matches.(Arguably) Went out on his shield both times in competitive matches. Also in that time he picked apart Frankie Edgar in a 5 round masterful performance but quickly forgotten after the three losses. McGregor nothing needs to be said about his credentials and current champ who I think has a long legendary career ahead of him Max Holloway is nothing to be ashamed about in losing to them. These fighters, Aldo included are on a level that Jeremy Stephens has never reached and probably will never reach(Maybe what do i know). Aldo is 27 and 4 he's only loss to three people two of them you already know the other was early in his career and he's only 31! That's the pime age for any great athlete. Aldo got over looked it happens but I don't know how many people picked against him. I know it was alot but I don't have any stats maybe some of you do. Stephens got beat with a beautiful 1-2 to the body taking out Stephens who's tough as any fighter in the UFC. Aldo is the 2nd or third best guy at 145. Holloway obviously number one and probably Ortega number 2 right now but Aldo isn't even close to leaving the top 3 right now. Aldo doesn't speak english and he's very proud and patriotic, grew up poor made it out of poverty and turned himself into one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time, the old rags to riches story but through the insane sport of MMA. This doesn't come out very much in the US mma media and I wish it would, he's a humble, noble family man and still very motivated to being great you can feel it in his interviews in portuguese. Well i'm sure I've bored most of you by now I just felt like a Aldo respect thread should be done. Remind or let newer fans know what Aldo has done in his career. Simply put very few errors in a long high level career. Anyway if anyone disagrees or agrees with what I've said i'd like to hear your thoughts. And who should be next for Aldo?
