    I am a fan of both fighters. Just wanted to break down the matchup in terms of numbers and how they stack up against each other.


    [​IMG]

    Aldo: 5’7” – 70” Reach
    McGregor: 5’8” – 74” Reach

    Jose Aldo: 2 TKO/KO, 5 Decisions
    Connor McGregor: 5 KO’s, 1 Decision


    Stats that stick out:

    Shortest AVG. Fight Time Amongst All Time UFC Bantamweights: Connor McGregor: 6:28
    Longest AVG. Fight Time Amongst All Time UFC Bantamweights: 21:00

    Total Strikes/Min:
    Aldo: 3.449 (28th/Division)
    McGregor: 7.316 (1st/Division)

    Sig. Body Strikes/Min:
    Aldo: 2.0 at 60%
    McGregor: 5.53 at 44% Accuracy

    Leg Kick Accuracy
    Aldo: 83%
    McGregor: 67%

    Sig Strikes/ Min:
    Aldo: 3.29 (44% accuracy)
    McGregor: 5.44 (44% accuracy)

    Strikes Absorbed/Min
    Aldo: 1.94 (73% Defense)
    McGregor: 3.01 (64% Defense)

    Takedowns Defended:
    Aldo: 91%
    McGregor: 67%


    After looking at the numbers, both fighters are REALLY different and actually have conflicting styles. Connor has the least amount of time in the cage for featherweights and Aldo has the most. It will be interesting to see how Aldo reacts when connor pushes the output on him.

    You do realize that Aldo has the advantage in strikes absorbed per minute? The lower the better. Conor has statistically worse defense.

    They both have trouble making featherweight. How the fuck are they going to drop another weight class???

    Master of movement, best defense ever, could ko prime Hunt with a grazing jab. Wins every exchange, he wanted Chad to take him down. /boxingislife

    Exactly. Like a mop from an info-mercial. You buy that shit because it's ulta-absorbsant bro.

    Who the fuck wants a mop that just avoids the spills?

    So Conor lands more strikes than Aldo and still has more accuracy. He also have way more power than him.

    Aldo will really need to TD him if he wants to win.

    Yeah Aldo's gameplan will probably be to catch his kicks and take him down. Connor knows that though..it will be interesting.

    Aldo is going to out strike Mcgregor. Power thrills but speed kills, and Conor is there to be hit all day.

    Aldo getting hurt ruined the build up for this fight. I'm sick of the talking, just wanna see them fight now, don't give a shit about anything either has to say anymore or any prediction threads.

    Aldo has a retarded blast double. He won't need to catch a kick to get a takedown.
