    So Aldo have a tough time ahead of him. He's got 2 choices and neither should be appealing to him.

    A. Stay at Featherweight and face Conor. The fight itself shouldnt be the hardest part, the buildup to that fight will take alot out of Aldo. And then face the very tough Edgar after that.

    B. Move up to lightweight and go through guys like Khabib or Gil just to fight Anthony Pettis. Dang.


    Whathever he does, will he keep his streak? Or is this the time we will see some wierd stuff happen?

    Aldo already said he wants to fight McGregor I think. Should be pretty funny to see McGregor get smoked, and he will.

    Forfeit the belt to Conor. Save his body for LW and stay there until Conor is hungry for more gold.

    In FW he will keep being undefeated for sure, he already beat Edgar. Hopefully he moves to LW, he can beat most of the top 10, top 5 is very hard tough tho.

    He should stay at FW right now. If he beats Conor and eventually Edgar again, then he'll could move up to LW.

    He should stay at FW, fighting Conor and Edgar...

    Then make a superfight with the current LW champ... Winning or losing, he should retire after that...

    Aldo is young, but has been thru some wars, and I think he will get downside from now...

    I don't wanna see Aldo get ko'd like Lidell, Shogun, AS and Fedor in his final fights...

    He cant walk away from the mcgregor fight anymore. To much has been said. IF he walks away it would look likes hes scared of Conor. His best move is to fight his next fight with him, if he loses, rematch.

    Overall Hes better off staying at FW because he wont be a champ at LW those top 5 LW would wreck him. Especially Pettis, and Khabib

    If the cut isn't too taxing, stay at FW.

    Lol he fought Mark Homminick. And was in trouble at the end. Mcgregor is the best fighter he has ever fought. As elite as Homminick, Korean Zombie and Llamas and Florian are...

    Conor should definetly be a tougher fight than Florian and Hominick. The crazy part is that dropped a round against those two

    He'll beat Conor and make it look easy.

    And if he decides to move up at any time he gets an immediate title shot.

    Aldo is the king. He has the world in his hands.

    The easier move would be to stay where he is and demolish Conor and run through everybody else AGAIN. But if he went up he would hurdle Khabib, Gil and everybody else and go straight to Pettis for the immediate title shot/superfight.

    Aldo is 28 years old and in his prime. He is barely older than Bones.

    you must be kidding me. McGregor is the most dangerous striker at FW and a bad stylistic matchup for him.
