i think he may have taken him a little lightly but i dont think he knew how to handle mark being a freak of nature being able to taking huge shots and keep coming foraward and firing back unlike faber who was just trying to survive by the 3rd round.
people aren't giving aldo enough credit. he beat a fucking beast in hominick. some people act as if he lost just because he was in a good fight.
i feel like he is now viewed as beatable, which he is but so is everybody, and as a result it'll give mendes too much confidence so he'll end up tasting the canvass by the end of the night.
