    I ended up going with Aldo by 2nd rd TKO, I thought long n hard about this fight and up until today had Edgar winning a UD..

    The 2 things that I got to thinking about..

    #1. Maynard went and trained with Aldo in preparation for Aldo's fight with Mendes and came back from Brazil utterly stunned with how good Aldo really is, He also stated he thought Aldo could be a champion at 155 if he wanted to be..And watching Gray slow telegraphed punches connect with Edgar as often as he did it only makes me think Aldo is going to severely brutalize Frankie.

    # 2. If this fight makes it past round 3 I can almost promise you Frankie out works Aldo to the W...See Aldo/Hominick

    Be nice if people wouldn't bring up opinion-based claims like "Aldo fought Faber in his prime" without much evidence as well...and also be more clear about what exactly the point is they are trying to make.

    Even if Faber was moreso in his prime then, is Frankie not in his prime now? He looked very good in his last fight imo.

    Plus, where they are or where they were in their careers is not as important to me as breaking down their styles, skill sets, and intangibles...

    This fight could end up looking like Aldo-Faber, Aldo definitely has some great leg kicks and could possibly implement and have success with a similar gameplan...I Just think Frankie is a better fighter than Faber but that's why we watch them fight, I guess.

    But thanks to Kevo for taking this off my hands, I'm sure he will have something interesting in store if he wins, and if he loses, better his sig be in CTGreat's hands than mine lol
    I'm down, WHERE YOU AT CT?! Break yo self fool!

    Exxcept Edgars got waay better boxing, better Footwork and head movement, Better TDS, More power, better chin, more heart.

    The only thing thats the same with these two guys is that they're wrestlers. And thats something I think Edgar has the edge in over Faber...

    I agree with all this but you forgot Penn as well. Penn and Maynard are easily the best guys on Frankies resume..and As much as I love Faber, Curran/Pulver and Assuncao dont really stacked up to those guys...no one of Fabers list does.

    And more importantly it wasnt just "us" that thought Frankie won those fights, Tons of media sites/journalist and fighters thought so to. They WERE close fights no one can deny that imo. Faber/Brown 1 was certainly not. And neither was Brown 2.



    WITH all this said. Im scared as fuck for Frankie, this will be the first fight of his since the Sherk fight that I wont be betting on. Im litterally nervous to watch because I dont want to see Frankie get destroyed.

    But man oh man if he can pull it off, My neighbors will hear how happy I am.

    Sakara, the whole intention of me posting in the 1st place was because you said this will look like Faber-Aldo, to which I replied with my opinion of Frankie being a better fighter. Then you said "so now Frankie is leaps and bounds ahead of Faber in his prime?"

    There is no denying that Jens Pulver was well past his prime when Faber beat him, or that Gray Maynard and Ben Henderson's resume' is a lot more impressive than Assuncao's. Mike Brown is definitely a good fighter, that I know, but I also don't see him as being on their level. Plus anyone who saw that fight knows that Faber got KO'd because he made a HUGE mistake. It wasn't like Brown did something amazing, he literally just threw a straight right hand with his feet planted when Faber got really overzealous.

    Plus, he still dominates the shit out of guys he should beat and loses his big fights. That's always been the story with him. So I don't see how his prime was right when he fought Aldo. Plus there's that whole part about how Frankie has been fighting a weight class above where he should have probably been fighting his whole career.

    No reason to get all crybaby-ish, we just disagree.

    The one thing I hate the most about MMA fans is their total dismissal of the past. It's sad really, and disrespectful to the fighters themselves.

    Please show me where I said Faber's wins or losses were greater or less than to Frankies? I was drawing parallels between the two because they are extremely similar in their styles and careers.

    Assunção was 14-1 when he fought Faber, Pulver was 2 fights removed from the UFC, and Mike Brown became the champion and the #1 ranked fighter who lost to Aldo of all people.

    I get it, you REALLY like Frankie but you can't let your love for a fighter cloud the truth.

    I've never said Faber was better than Edgar, never said Frankie was a scrub or anything close to that. I see the Edgar fight mirroring the Faber fight except I believe Aldo finishes Edgar, something he couldn't do to Faber.
