Grispi: Aldo can be knocked out, choked out


Grispi started watching Aldo when a potential matchup against him was discussed during their climbs up the WEC ranks. The fight didn’t come together, but Grispi kept his eye on the man who would go on to take the title from Mike Thomas Brown last November. Aldo has defended his belt twice now, and Grispi has noticed the changes he’s made in becoming an increasingly seasoned champion.

“I seen him before, when he first started, being a little more wild with those flying knees, doing all those crazy acrobatics he does,” Grispi said. “But then I saw him calm down a little bit in the title fights to conserve energy, it looks like, because he has five five-minute rounds. Definitely a mature fighter. Definitely he has ring awareness and [knows] what’s going on time-wise and everything like that. He’s definitely a complete package.”

Aldo is’s No. 3-ranked pound-for-pound fighter in the world. He has looked nearly invincible in the WEC, but Grispi believes he’ll find a way to beat him.

“Everyone’s human,” Grispi said. “No matter how you look at it, everyone’s human. They can be knocked out, they can be choked out. I’m going to find those weak points when I get in there.”

To be fair to Grispi, he's extremely impressive and has looked lightyears better than his opponents too. Sometimes I think theres going to be way too much natural talent in that cage when these two fight. I'll pick Aldo, hands down, but it would be foolish not to follow the career of Josh Grispi with your eyes wide open. Mma is so god damn exciting with these young guys.

Almost all of Aldo's opponents say the same thing, then they leave the octagon in pieces lucky to still be breathing.What's gispi going to do? Out strike aldo? No. Submit aldo? Nope.
