    I've always assumed it was Aldo with the slight upper hand but now I'm not so sure. Anybody have any information on this?

    Aldo.

    Saw it once in Rio. They're were rolling. Aldo was controlling him. But they couldn't submitt each other.
    Don't know about striking, but one would assume it's Aldo too

    I think Barao because Aldo lives loves kicks and I don't think he would kick Baraos les too hard like he would someone like Faber or Edgar

    It'd be nice to see a video of them sparring.

    Who cares, both of these guys will stay champion until the day where the age has caught up to them. I don't know who gets the better in the sparring, not a bad question.

    Would be inclined to say Barao on the ground, Aldo on the feet.

    what you have there is an artful representation of ultimate manhood. I can almost smell the hard earned sweat on their bodies... licking it off and imbibing their manly juices whilst I softly caress their rock hard and sore muscles... playing with their toes and shit

    you guys are way too obsessed with finishes... sparring is way more about technique and Aldo is the far more technical fighter in all aspects of the sport.

    Aldo, and it probably isn't that close to be honest.

    My bet is Barao.


    Because I have seen Barao get the better in all the footage I have seen.
    But someone just said the latest preview for 173 had Aldo getting the better of Barao, but I haven't seen it.


    Its kinda of hard to say really, because all footage can chosen to sell a story for promotion, only way to tell would be to spend time in their camp.

    Thats a 5 second footage at most. They are all sweaty and no one knows how long it has been going on. Nothing can be said until we see it in front of our eyes. My guess is Barao though.

    You can't film when you're watching they training, unless Dede lets you do it. And usually that permission is for TV only.
