    Jones had been tested vs wrestlers, and strikers. He was also a favorite vs the champ, who had no defenses.

    My point? This is NOTHING the same!

    (I think it's 50/50 tho)

    Alot of ppl are comparing the two fights. Obviously the responses so far are not from those who believed the parallel, but my wordind of the title intended to drag those types in.

    Well, this is actually true! McGregor vs Aldo is kinda like Jones vs Shogun except Aldo is no Shogun and McGregor is no Jones!! Ha!

    ... Well, McGregor does seem to be a little Jonesey but Aldo is definitely no Shogun! Which makes this fight even so much more thrilling! To me it's sorta like Jones's run if Anderson Silva were the LHW belt-holder. Imagine if that were the case back in the day. Do you guys think McGregor vs Aldo would be similar to that scenario?

    Remember Barao vs Dillashaw ? This is also a BS comparison because every fight is different and anyone can beat anyone at the highest level.

    The "Aldo is going to destroy Conor" and vice versa predictions are stupid. You have the 2 best FW strikers, undefeated in the UFC facing each other. It's impossible to predict anything.
