    Has never fought a striker like Conor McGregor.

    All of Aldo's wins in the UFC have been primarily guys not known for their standup, and the fights have been close.

    Mendes - wrestler who tagged Aldo multiple times
    Lamas - grappler
    KZ - grappler who was keeping up with Aldo
    Edgar - wrestler who arguably won the fight
    Florian - jack of all trades

    Cub, but yeah, that was definitely a fluke KO (come the fuck on, double flying knee 3 seconds into a fight?) and granted, Cub has is leaps and bounds better now than he was back then.

    You would think that Conor was undefeated the way people are talking about him.

    Conor hasn't even fought a good striker, let alone a wrestler.

    Fun fact:
    When Conor was losing to dudes in Ireland, Jose was already the #1 FW in the world.

    Yah....but Aldo has actually fought top comp and past champs/contenders.

    BTW....on the topic of wrestlers....guess you can see tonight why Conor hasn't fought any yet...easily taken down twice.

    Meanwhile Aldo is elite in every single facet of MMA, while we only know that Conor is a good striker.

    Who was the last one dimensional champion in the UFC? Remind me, please.

    KZ is a grappler now?
    Hominick was a striker. And a less than 100% Aldo beat him bad

    Look up an old WEC fight Aldo vs Perez. Perez was a striker.

    All the fighters that Connar beat,Aldo's opponents would destroy.

    Aldo fighting without the threat of a TD is a scary thought.. Also Siver tagging Connors lead leg, this could get ugly

    Most of KZ's wins are submissions.

    And don't cite fights from years ago. Aldo was an exceptional fighter but he's gotten slow and predictable. Conor is the new breed and will bless him with a right hand to make him go down.

    There's a 2 year age difference between the two fighters.

    Point taken, but when Anderson was losing to dudes in PRIDE and getting DQ'ed in Rumble on the Rock, Rich Franklin was the #1 MW in the world (the timelines don't perfectly match up but you get the sentiment).

    Lol Aldo has gotten slow now? He's faster than Conor for fuck sake. I would laugh at all the butt hurt for many months if Aldo subbed Conor in the first round.
