Aldo couldn't finish Hominick or Faber in 25 minutes and I think we all saw moments in both of those fights where Aldo took "breaks" in the rounds. It's definitely possible but I wouldn't assume he's going to retain his title in a flashy fashion against Florian.
This is a good point. Perhaps Aldo couldn't finish Faber simply because that was an opponent he wanted to play it "safe" against? Maybe he couldn't finish Hominick, and came close to being defeated in the fifth, imo, because he was sick. Who knows? I feel Aldo has more spectacular showings than GSP style 5 rounders. (Which can be tactically brilliant, again in my humblest opinion)
I think if we were speaking statistically, Aldo's decline of averages would mean he's due to come out and wow us again. The fight I was watching, Kenny's chin didn't look super good.... I say he comes back like Anderson Silva and Lyoto and gives us a spectacular KO.
