    Neither fighter seems to have KO power.

    Will this fight end in a decision?

    Max has Christmas and other family obligations to attend to. I think Aldo will fight someone else in February.

    Aldo's chin is cracked. You could see it in the Mendes and McGregor fight.
    I think Max KO's him.

    I just want that division to have an actual champ. Right now there are three. All basically undeserving.

    I gotta go with Aldo even though Max has looked beastly.

    Both can KO each other. The lack of KO power is a myth.

    Not a myth. Max doesn't hit hard just often and well placed
    He is positively scawny and throws with minimum commitment.

    He has two KO's in his record, and 4 TKO's (one being an injury by Oliveira). A well placed punch or kick with the opponents head moving in the wrong direction can KO any fighter.

    It's largely a myth fans like to attach to fighters. Some do have better skill, timing and power to KO opponents (Rumble, Conor, etc), but most fighters can KO an opponent.

    I'm not saying Max can't hit hard enough to KO someone.
    Simply that for a FW he really doesn't hit very hard... Volume and placement is how he gets guys.
    But he doesn't have that "KO power" in the sense most people mean.

    Like its unlikely he just pops a punch through the gloves and flatlines somebody.
    Yknow?

    It's very rare someone pops a punch through the gloves and flatlines the opponent. Most KOs have power and placement behind them. Even a master KO artist has a hard time pulling it off on a well-defended opponent.

    Of course, I agree and know what you mean: neither invest in powerful killer shots. Even Ali wasn't really a one-punch KO fighter, he usually worked his way to get the fighter to a situation he could finish them. Foreman carried a more powerful punch and had a different approach.

    In any case: it will most likely be a decision.
