This fight will be decided in the first round, if Edgar can get Aldo down in that first round he will have a legit chance of winning a UD. If he is unable to, which is what I'm predicting, he will be on the losing end of the fight and might get finished.
Im a fan of both guy but I'm a bigger Edgar fan. Really hoping he can come in and dominate Aldo to make a statement in the division. But we all know what kinda animal Aldo is. Anything will be possible in this fight.
Edgar needs to check the leg kicks early if he lasts past the 3rd round he will win the fight.
I think Aldo is making a big mistake if he is not making plans for a long 5 rounds. He should watch all of Frankie's footage and see that this guy has got more heart than most fighters. If Frankie takes this into the later rounds, Aldo might wear down. Aldo has a pretty large weight cut. This is going to be a crazy fight.
Personally I see this going the same as Aldo vs Faber.
Faber and Frankie are extremely similar in style with Frankie having the edge in movement.
aldo's killer instinct makes me fear for frankie's safety ive grown to like the answer very much once the bj fights were in the rearview, i'll be rooting for edgar but aldo is such an animal if he knocks down edgar he wont fail to finish him off like maynard did
The longer it goes, the more it favors Edgar... Unless Aldo really puts a beating on Frankie's legs to the point where it hinders him...
Frankie has legit hands, but often finds success due to his speed... Aldo has a quickness few fighters have. He may surprise Edgar... Frankie also showed in the Bendo fight, that you can cut off his movement with kicks... Im sure he has adjusted but Aldo is a different beast, not as powerful as Ben, but WAY faster.
While Aldo does have elite TDD, that is where I see Frankie looking to exploit. Frankie is very fast himself, sets up his takedowns well with his transitions.
Im sure Frankie could find his rhythm standing and get some in and out shots on Aldo, but that may be too dangerous of a strategy... playing with fire...
Im taking Aldo by TKO... but Frankie could easily pull it off...
Open to bets.
Sounds like Aldo is underestimating Frankie which is a mistake.
Frankie will pull it off. This is going to be a hell of a super fight
If Edgar was fighting anybody else at FW id be pretty confident hed win, As i still think hes the top 2-3 LW in the world. But being a huge Edgar fan, this fight with Aldo has me worried as fuck. If Edgar losses, and Aldo stays champ, where does Frankie go from there?
Theres a reason that Aldo is one of the P4P best fighters. 14 fight win streak, finishing 8 of those fights, against 7-8 top10 guys is pretty damn impressive.
Im hoping for a late TKO stoppage from Frankie somewheres in the "championship rounds", but I got a bad feeling Aldo destroys Edgar and then Edgar is left in limbo.
Again, this is coming from a big Edgar fan, its just too hard to ignore how incrediably(sp?) good Aldo is. This will be the first fight of Edgars since Sean Sherk that I wont bet on.
