Aldo has yet to face a fighter with the stand-up skills comparable to Pettis. For the most part he has faced guys with solid grappling backed up by adequate striking. Mark Hominick probably posed the biggest threat to Aldo on the feet, but it’ll be a whole new ballgame once he steps in there with Pettis.

“I feel like I have one of the best stand-up games in mixed martial arts,” Pettis said confidently. “It’s only getting better, I’m 26-years-old and I’m always learning something new. I’m always adding stuff to my game and evolving as a fighter. I feel like I’m one of the best strikers in MMA, I just need the time to prove it. All these other guys have 25 minute fights while my last two fights were four minutes combined. You haven’t really seen my full potential yet.”

I actually think Aldo might do better at 155 against Pettis. Aldo seemed to be holding back a lot against Edgar, and he still seemed to slow down a lot in the later rounds. Maybe Pettis will have a similar issue, but either way I don't think Aldo is near his best these days. I'm gonna take Pettis against Aldo for the FW belt.

I hope to see Aldo move up after the fight. No offense to Lamas, but I'm not nearly as interested in seeing that fight as I am in seeing Aldo move up to LW. Also I think Korean Zombie has just as much of a claim to the title shot as Lamas does, so maybe those 2 can fight for a vacant title.

Pettis is a more talented striker than Aldo. Anthony is so accurate at the right times. He's much better than Aldo at setting up strikes, as well.

Aldo's fast, and his attacks are blindingly fast. He also packs a lot of power, and his technique when he throws is certainly on a comparable level to Anthony's... it could very well be enough for him to defend his belt.
