    zombie's most impressive win is against poirier and he was ktfo'd by roop (who's also lost his last 2). you can't compare that to beating bj penn, gray maynard, sean sherk and jim miller. you just can't.

    for frankie to drop down and immediately get the title shot (especially coming off a controversial decision to the #1lw in the world) makes absolute sense. by his accomplishments he deserves to fight for the belt right away. there's no one else at 145 that even comes close to aldo right now...
    Controversial or not (I think he won the last fight but that's moot) he has lost his last two title shots in a row. That alone to me is not a reason to get a title shot esp when changing weight classes. Jung has won his last 3 in a row and don't forget he destroyed Hominick in 7 seconds and Hominick gave Aldo a hell of a fight at the end. I like Frankie but he should have to make his way to a title shot. I'm grumpy about this just like I am about Sonnen somehow weaseling his way into a shot at Jones. I'll watch the fights, maybe I'll watch Sonnen and Jones but I'm damn well going to watch Frankie and Aldo but I don't think he should be fighting for title.

    Were you ok with Koch getting the shot? His best win in his 4 fight win streak was against Brookins as far as I'm concerned...just sayin.

    Let's just hope it's not a close fight last thing we need is for Frankie to have to do another rematch.

    I can see Aldo getting a rematch though if he loses.

    This is a super fight that we have been looking for. Lets hope Aldo is at his best and the injury is fully healed and neither get injured again.


    I still cant believe that some people had Frankie winning the first Bendo fight.

    If Aldo beats Edgar, there is absolutely no question in that he should move to LW.

    I can imagine the future of both guys with a win over the other. If Jose Aldo beats Edgar, it would be the turning point of his UFC career. He will hopefully relinquish the FW title and join the ranks at LW, sending a warning shot upon his entrance. He would be in a very interesting position at this point considering his next step. A win over Edgar would catapult him to where he belongs as he is an exceptional fighter that needs to be recognized.

    On the other hand, if Edgar beats Aldo, he would be overcoming the odds again and upsetting the FW kingpin in Jose Aldo, becoming the 2nd FW champion in UFC history. Defeating Aldo is gold in itself. It would jumpstart his career and redeem him from his last two losses (which were BS, IMO). The future would be bright for him at FW.

    I feel bad for the man who loses. A loss in this fight will be as detrimental to their career as a win would be positive.

    Yet just as many people believe that Henderson clearly won the first fight. I personally had Hendo winning the first fight and the second fight being more of a tossup.

    In real life he actually lost his last 2 fights. I think what you meant to say is "In my mind.."

    Hopefully Frankie can defend/counter the leg kicks of Aldo otherwise it could be a long night for him. I think Frankie gives Aldo some problems if he can though he is constantly getting better and he'll be able to use his wrestling more effectively seen as he's not giving up the size difference like he was against Maynard, Bendo and BJ.
