    No fight has predictable result and end.

    I cant disagree with you on that. Aldo is the best in the biz when it comes to leg kicks and is a superior striker when compared to Bendo. I would still love to see the match up though. The biggest advantage I see for Frankie would be his heart. The guy just keeps on coming. It is an intangible that may just be enough to score a victory over Aldo.

    He abandoned them because Frankie made adjustments after Bendo kept nailing him. I only noticed it the second time I watched the fight because I was wondering why Bendo stopped throwing them.

    He could not make that cut without hurting himself eventually.

    After the 1st round Frankie caught every leg kick, and used it to counter. Bendo abandoned it because it stopped working.

    I think Frankie has a shot against Aldo, but cutting to 135 seems like too much. Hardly ever see guys have more success after cutting a ton of weight.

    I was gonna say that, but I think if it goes to the 4th-5th then Frankie really starts picking him apart.
