    Aldo has been beating wrestler because he's just a really bad match up for wrestlers, he has legendary take down defense and great MT.

    Conor will expose this! Conor will become your new champion.

    zombie and clearly won that fight until the finish with a broken foot, since the first round.

    Hominick was one of the most polished kickboxers in MMA and Aldo handled him very well on the feet.

    he aint ready to get a piece of Aldo, yet.

    If he does well, maybe on a rematch.

    last time I checked this is MMA and every fighter Aldo faced lately is elite in every area.

    But hey, if you think a one dimensional fighter is the guy to take Aldo out, whatever floats your boat...

    He has fought plenty of elite level MMA fighters with good striking, even if it is not their base, notably KZ, UFC 179 Super Mendes, and Frankie Edgar (dominated him standing, wasn't a close fight, don't believe the lies).
    He had those mule kicks yeah, but Hominick noticeably outjabbed him at pretty much every turn. Had some good body shots too. That was when Aldo's striking was raw and unpolished though, his jab was pretty crappy in those days.

    Mendes is a more dangerous striker than Poirier and Siver

    just stop

    Max Holloway is a better striker than any of them.

    you really believe this shit? lol. He is not better than a guy who dropped Aldo..

    He's good, but you're Jake Shieldsing him, i.e. overrating his ability because he fought Conor McGregor (this is why people bring up Akiyama, Mike Pyle or Paul Daley in Shields's resume as if it actually means anything). Nobody would care if, say, Poirier turned in the same performance against Holloway, as opposed to submitting him in the first round (which he did). But when Conor does throws a bunch of flashy kicks that don't actually land, and takes him down off a caught kick, he's some sort of prodigy..
