Pancake Syrup - Yup sure am trolling saying Frankie doesn't deserve to fight Aldo for the title after losing his last 2 fights yup let me take my troll face off real quick....

He only lost in the eyes of those blind judges...I had Frankie winning both fights.

Frankie is the Rocky Balboa of MMA and I'm definitely rooting for him in this one.

I'm saying Frankie, but I'm well aware that the fact that he's one of my favourite fighters is the reason. In reality I see this as a 50/50 matchup, and a true superfight.

I also want Frankie to win to make up for the fact that he got robbed in his last fight.

Not sure how you could think Frankie won the first one. But whatever his last fight was close enough I have no problem with Edgar fighting Aldo now, he's a former champ and their isn't any clear contender at 145 Phone Post

Rooting for Frankie, although my gut tells me Aldo will win, but who knows Frankie is not somebody you can count out. Phone Post

I gave Benson the first but Frankie the 2nd but still they are both loses and he shouldn't get an immediate title shot at 145. Should have had him fight Koch or KZ when he gets back to 100%

I think Frankie is going to do it. I'll be there in Vegas and might put some money on Frankie. I assume he's the underdog?

JROTT - If bigger guys like Maynard and Bendo can't ko Edgar then I can't see Aldo doing it.. I still remember UFC 129 with Aldo gassed underneath Hominick unable to get up..

Those guys aren't really known for finishing people though. Benson's only real way to finish is the guillotine and Maynard doesn't finish anyone. Edgar doesn't usually fight top strikers or kickers. Will be interesting. Phone Post

Edgar doesnt usually, but aldo has never fought another top striker and def never a top striker with top wrestling. The closest thing to a top striker was kenny. Closest to a top striker w/top wrestling, also ken. And we know hes neither....we also know he won that fight.

And who does Aldo typically fight? Edgar has been going toe-to-toe with much bigger fighters in a much deeper division for years.

How can you not be excited about this fight? Aldo is P4P top 5, best FW of all time and Edgar should be wearing the belt at 155 right now fighting above his natural weight class.

Edgar imo is the only 145er in the world who can possibly beat Aldo so yeah I'd excited.

It also happens to be my favorite fighter vs a fighter I went to school with and know. So whoever wins i'll be happy.

If anyone is gonna beat Aldo I'd rather it be Frankie.

Hominick was a very good striker before his trainer died. I'll assume you forgot about him, but I agree he doesn't pose wrestling threats Aldo does. Phone Post

Stoked for this fight, should be one of those fights that are thrilling regardless of who wins.

I feel Edgar should be favored to win. Phone Post

I was simply replying to Benson and Maynard not being able to finish him. And yes Edgar has been in the deeper division, but he hasn't fought a lot of it's depth due to the rematch.

Who they have fought doesn't really matter in any case, who is the better fighter does. Phone Post

Aldo typically....and i HATE THIS WORD...but he fights 1 dimensional, "professional opponents". Guys paid to make aldo look good. Ken & faber werent(although, who has faber beaten? His best win to date is a 20yr old undersized cruz), but they are past prime, pro gate keepers.

Fuck me! The machine! I love him, howTF did i forget about him?? I love him, but hes not a "great" mma striker. Ken is a better mma striker. FE blows him out da water. . Hes undersized & 1 dimensional. Even still, he outstruck aldo on the feet enough to make a supposed "p4p #2 striker" go 4 TDs.

What about that damn knee Aldo threw against Mendes when breaking the takedown attempt?  Will Frankie put himself in that position?
