    Chris Weidman has an unmatched 1:1 ratio of title defenses to title defense pull-outs, as close to a sure thing as you can get in a battle such as this ...

    ... but Jose Aldo has seniority, after 9 title defenses becoming a certified ace and taking the lead with 5 withdrawals.

    Now they have the same date with destiny and finally go head-to-head in the title of P4P Pull-Out King. Who takes it?

    Aldo usually pulls out and then competes the next time out. Weidman...is injury prone, but I think he'll be fine. I'd imagine Weidman pulls out if anything.

    I didn't know Chris pulled out of the first title fight with Anderson before 162. I dont think he pull out of his defense with Anderson at 168. So that's 2.

    I think they both make their respective fights, but if I had to bet, it would be Weidman pulling out--only because Aldo has so much more riding on making it to the cage; pressure, respect and most likely the ownership of his belt.

    HA! Good call, I don't know why I put the numbers for defenses but didn't type 'defenses'. It's been a long week I guess.

    3 pull-outs : 3 defenses = 1:1

    Aldo vs Conor will happen this time. I can't say the same for Weidman vs Luke

    He needs to get a couple of ped-testers departed to reach Aldo's level, imo.

    Aside from his rival I don't think there's a fighter on the planet under more pressure than Aldo is, but Aldo really seems like the guy who gives the least fucks about pressure.

    You may be right though. What GSP has said about the pressure breaking him, as well as the falls of Anderson and Jones, reveals a lot about the effect pressure can have on a long-term champion, and Aldo is at more or less the same stage in his career as GSP was (number of fights/number of defenses). And Aldo carries Brazil in a way GSP never had to carry Canada. Not that Canada's not passionate about MMA, but Brazil's on another level and Aldo's their #1 hero.
