Aldo is a 2 to 1 favorite. I figured I'd be a bargainer. Big difference between that and being scared. If I was scared I wouldn't have made the offer. Your favorite fighters are Jones, Anderson, Aldo, etc...so of coarse you'd be hopeful that people just do straight up bets with you all the time lol I do think Frankie has the style to be able to win but this isn't exactly a pick-em fight imo.
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
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.
