“About his speed, it won’t be a problem,” said Aldo in an interview with the UFC. “He’s always been an explosive fighter, but I’m an explosive fighter as well. I’ve been training jiu-jitsu since I was a kid, so if we both hit the ground, I will be the one with the advantage.”

“Chad’s style of fighting is very similar to Faber’s,” Aldo explained. “The height, the wrestling, the way they move…they are very similar. Mendes is younger than Faber, but it’s basically the same type of fight for me.

“Mendes has got a disadvantage fighting me on his feet. He’s not as good a boxer as the other guys I have faced and I don’t think he can do well standing up in this fight. I will be looking for a knockout or a submission.”

I think overall Aldo's groundgame probably is better, but Mendes specializes in taking people down and dryhumping them for time and he's very good at that. With these judges that's all he needs and that's hard to counter. Ya, it's not threatening in the least but because of that it's also hard to counter or reverse. If a fighter had to go for damage or subs instead of stall it'd be a different story but these judges favor that style of "fighting" heavily.

If Aldo gets put on his back for any amount of time they'll give Mendes the round, no matter what else Aldo does. This makes it a bigger challenge for Jose than many realize. Hopefully he can pull it off and put Mendes away in the process because the last thing FW needs is a a champ with an overall low fighting skillset but who's the most specialized dryhumper in the division.

Aldo won't spend much time on his back in this fight. Mendes wrestling is overrated, Aldo is prepared for that one dimensional shit Phone Post
