    At the time, i couldnt wrap my head around this fight. Faber was way more proven than Conor. He was the former champ dude

    What about Aldo vs Edgar? Mcgregor vs Aldo will wind up being the biggest most likely.

    IMO no. Faber loss the title to MTB and then failed to capture the title against MTB. Aldo was a man on a mission and Faber was just another steeping stone.

    Aldo vs Mendes II is the greatest FW fight IMO

    About the quality of the fight, Aldo vs Mendes was the best FW fight for me... Such a good fight, with good display of hearth, agression and technic of both sides...

    Aldo vs Faber was a one sided ass beaten... Faber got nothing for Aldo...

    For me it was Aldo/Frankie. Still would love to see that fight again. That was a superfight to me

    By name, Aldo vs Edgar was the biggest:

    Best FW in history against former(and trully) LW champion... And was a close fight, Edgar is the only one that I see clearly winning two rounds against Aldo...

    Aldo vs Edgar II will be good too... Edgar still improving his game...

    And Mcgregor will get his ass kicked to oblivion as soon as he gets to fight Aldo, Edgar or Mendes

    Aldo/Edgar had a lot of hype for it going into the fight
