    But on the Petis v Aldo fight, I think Aldo is going to be able to better showcase his striking then he did against Frankie. He had to stop throwing leg kicks because of the potential risk of a take down. Just overall he had to be very cautious, but against a guy like Petis where he is not really going to be constantly looking to defend against a take down he will be a lot more versatile with his striking.

    I would sig bet that Aldo gets a finish in the first 3 rounds.
    Agree. Frankie's style is hard to deal with....

    with Pettis it will be a true striking battle... Pettis is very quick himself, has good technical kickboxing and has some unorthodox approaches to his game... He is very dangerous... of even finishing Aldo...

    Id pick Jose as well, but it will be a very dangerous fight for him... And he does often seem to fade in the later rounds or atleast slow down a little. Lets hope he can correct that, its its correctable so he doesnt get caught while hes tired.

    Well said and I completely agree.

    I'd say best striking in MMA is close between Anderson Silva and Jose Aldo.

    I dont know if Id go as far as saying he's one of the best strikers in mma, but he's definately one of the more creative strikers.

    And Bonesknows, what Im saying is that if you're going to have an opinion about cross-weight class fighting, try to be consistant about it.

    Very misleading title

    Either way he is easily top 3 - 5 in striking in mma imho.

    Silva's striking is on another level, then you got Aldo and Machida who is also a very accurate striker and hard to hit. Pettis is great in how creative and athletic he is as well with his already solid striking.

    Aldo will have to be relentless and not let Pettis find his kicking range mostly.

    I think Petis is a great fighter and I bet he could beat Henderson again. But I see him getting KOd by Aldo. Not taking anything away from Petis, I just think Aldo's stand up is that good.
    Well damn. Aldo should just go up and take the MW belt then and every other belt on his way up.
