Refs need to have a talk and be more consistent. Dude was slapping Aldo's hands and feet away from the cage that last round, and in the Mir fight the ref was just letting him grab the cage as much as he wanted; never ever made a move to stop him from doing it.

Yeah, sans the 5th round fading he kind of exudes the GSP effect, though I think mastery of the stand up game is more impressive and entertaining than take down mastery.

Jose Aldo will go to 155 and challenge Pettis now. Pettis by KO.
