    I think Aldo knocks him out inside of the first two...with the slightest lean toward the first.

    I really want to see Aldo's BJJ, but your prediction sounds about right.

    Aldo by destrucion within 3 rounds. Edgar no longer has the speed advantage at 145, thats going to be hard to adjust to. Aldo's is just too good.

    Frankie Edgar by UNANIMOUS DECISION.

    I want to be on record as the first guy on this thread to call the upset perfectly correct.

    Edgar will dominate. Aldo will get taken down, outworked, and outclassed. He will be tired, confused and frustrated by the end.

    Yup. Aldo hasn't looked very good lately so this is certainly possible. Frankie is amazing, he was dominant against bigger fighters. Aldo needs to bring his "A" game.

    I think Aldo will win but I'm not sure how.

    I can see him finishing Frankie with strikes although Frankie is tough, but I could definitely see him winning a dominant decision.

    BJ rematch was very convincing but I'm not sure it would be classed as domination.

    He dominated Bocek, Fisher, and Veach... if I remember those fights correctly.

    Edgar won that fight. And the first one too.

    This fight could go either way.

    I see Frankie taking down Aldo at some point. Not sure how much he will be able to do with it - at least in the early going. I think Frankie's got to use his wrestling and cardio advantages to use: chain TD attempts together relentlessly until it wears out Aldo. Push Aldo to the limit as Cain's done with JDS.
