Sylynkz - I didn't search through the 6 pages, but has anyone mentioned the fact that both these guys have been on the majority of P4P lists for a couple years and now they get to actually fight? AS and GSP too...we'll see how accurate all of our thoughts were when these 2 fights that are in the works, take place. My thoughts are GSP gets lit up by AS, but not condit and Aldo is gonna smack the shit right out of Edgar, who I think needs to develop a dangerous game. You can't just be a fast boxer with takedowns. You're gonna get your ass whooped.

crazy how he was able to become lw champ with being just a fast boxer with takedowns

Most people had him going 1-1 against Henderson. I even thought the first fight was debatable. Edgar is way better than any other FW challenger right now.

kinkle - Edgar will absolutely DEMOLISH Aldo.
LOL Phone Post

Edgar was the KING of the deepest division in MMA, and is still a top 3-4 fighter at that weight (although I think he lost both Benson fights, he definitely could win if he got another shot). Aldo is the KING of a LIGHTER weightclass that has some of the weakest competition of any weightclass.

So lets see a BIG FISH from a big pond vs a big fish in a very small pond. Who wins?


Edgar is going to make Aldo eat punches all night, and then is going to double leg his ass through the canvas and beat Aldo's face into the ground until it starts resembling rasberry jam. I can't believe people think Aldo has any CHANCE, the guy who was almost finished by Mark Hominick? LMAO!!!!!!!!
Yea, cos everyone does that to Aldo :\

Frankie on the other hand, his face never looks like he got hit by a truck or nothin

Brazilians are on another level. This will look a lot like Faber / Baraou Phone Post
Lol.... You do realize Edgar has faced 10x tougher competition than Aldo right? Do you really think Edgar wouldn't demolish every fighter Aldo has faced? Aldo has never fought a fighter as tough as Edgar. Edgar on the other hand has faced Aldo level fighters every fight he has had in the last couple of years. Aldo is UNTESTED. Phone Post

orcus - 
youarewhatiswrong - I felt very strongly that bones should have taken the fight with chael, who was coming up in weight and less dangerous than hendo.

I feel that this, however, is a very dangerous fight for aldo to take on short notice. I respect the fuck out of him for taking it, but frankie is very dangerous, and was the most recent champion of the weight class ABOVE aldo's own.

That said, this is how a true champion faces a challenge, bones. Take note.

Cant wait for this fight.

  This is 6 weeks' notice, not 8 days'.

This is The Answer, not Pillowfists McLayinpray (love you Chael, I really do.)

This is also a completely different type of fighter than Koch, and the recent champion of the HIGHER weight class, not a less dangerous clone of the previous opponent from the same camp.

Keep spinning damage control for Jones though.

I think he won both fights, and he got this shot by stepping in on short notice. Who do you think makes more sense for Aldo to fight?

Frankie Edgar already has his G status cemented in stone. He didn't need to do this. He is the kind of dude that would take a fight on an afternoons notice tho.
I wanted to dislike Frankie but over time it became impossible.
I can't think of a single fighter that has shown the heart he has and am thus rooting for him to beat Aldo. Phone Post

Am I the only one who thinks that the UFC is turning into a greasy promotion? This makes the second time in two weeks that two fighters, comming off of title losses have been given immediate shots at the title in a different weight class.

White completely stepped over a number of guys who have been waiting their turn. They are too scared to tweet anything negative about it, for fear of being shown the door.

That being said, I expect Aldo to dominate like he has been.

He is undefeated for the past seven years, a former LW and has defeated elite guys like Brown and Faber with little effort.

Not a chance in hell Frankie was turning this fight down.

He could have a machete sticking out of his leg at the time he got the call, and he would have taken the fight.

Wouldn't dare turn down a fight so shortly after the whole 151 fiasco.

Maybe the best injury replacement ever. I like Koch but anyone being honest knows he in no way deserved a titel shot, he only got it because Zombie/Dustin P were booked and Hioki turned it down. He was the 4th choice.
