    Pitbull is one of the best FW in the world although he was a bit off his game today he still subbed top FW in Strauss.

    How do you guys see pitbull doing vs the elite in the Ufc?

    Aldo-pitbull is a badass but Aldo would play with him with ease.

    Mendes-this one imo would be a war I give mendes the edge but pitbull has that great equalizer.

    Edgar-Edgar will try to wrestle pitbull to death but pitbulls TD d is top notch. If Edgar keeps him on the ground he takes it but if he can't he might be in trouble.

    Lamas-pitbull takes this one both have equal skill but pitbull has that power.

    What's with all the Pitbull/UFC debates lately? Other than Aldo and Mendes, I think he can beat the other FWs. Cub Swanson would be a good matchup for him

    I don't think Pitbull is as good as people are making him out to be. Looked lost there against Straus. Luckily for him Straus loves giving RNC at the end of fights he's winning.

    True he did look a bit off tonight but still stopped a top guy.

    Look at the pitbull version that beat Curran for the title that particio would beat anyone not named Jose Aldo in the Ufc FW division.

    50-50 Mendes, Aldo, Edgar. Clear favorite over the rest

    I was quite impressed by both. Definitely top 5 material.

    I'd like to see him in the UFC BW div, FWs are bigger than him, even you can look the difference with Strauss

    I think Aldo, Mendes, Edgar would beat him ease, he could have a good chance with the rest

    Top 10 without doubt if he'd go to UFC

    He relies too much on power his stand up technique is kinda like Melvin Guillard.

    He loses to aldo, edger, mendes, for sure. He probably loses to Lamas, swanson, and McGregor.

    Honestly if he came to the UFC it would be a great showcase fight for McGregor. I really dont like McGregor at all but he is built to destroy a guy like pitbull.


    He would be in the top 10 and a solid top 10.

    pitbull is in the same league as a lot of the best fw's in the ufc. His style and skillset wouldn't let me put him as a big favorite against a lot of the best dudes, but he wouldn't be a big underdog against almost anyone.

    perhaps because he just fought last night...

    Is Danial Strauss just that big for 145 or Am i kind of right in assuming Pitbull would have to hit up 135 in the ufc

    Not beating Aldo, Edgar, Mendes

    Would be in right in the next wave of fighters, McGregor, Cub, Lamas etc, would be one of them, top 10, put on good fights, win some, lose some, could get a title shot depending on matchmaking.

    lol wow no.

    relies too much on his power? he has very technical standup.

    edgar will be a perfect matchup for him, considering edgar couldn't take him down.

    That's why last night his eye looked like hamburger meat. His JDS style striking defense would get him mauled

    He would get owned by the top 5. Completely unimpressive and would have been stopped if Straus had any killer instinct.

    Laughable that people think he would have a shot against Edgar.

    I can see an argument on how he could beat Edgar based on their styles. I don't think he would though. Frankie can outwork him and even wear him down, especially if he went to the body like Straus did. But he wouldn't be able to do it from range like Straus, which would give Pitbull opportunities to land his own shots and trading with Pitbull is obviously dangerous.

    I think he could beat Poirer, Bermudez, maybe Connor, and Cub.

    I think Straus would probably do better, strangely.
