After watching Aldo and Barao back-to-back with Dantas vs. Galvao in between, I can't help but wonder what would happen if Renan and Joes put their camp loyalty aside and fought each other. They have similar styles, with Aldo being a little faster and more accurate of a striker and Barao having the better ground game.


Who ya got and why?

I'd take Aldo mostly due to size and experience over better fighters. I'd love to see it though.

Aldo is more explosive, and a much tighter striker, I think that would give a slight edge.

I am inclined to go the same as Aldo's TDD would likely make it a striking battle. Barao does seem to handle the later rounds better, though, so if Barao was able to survive rounds 1 and 2 he'd have a good chance.

I'd go Jose. I think it would be a great fight, but I give Aldo the edge because of the aforementioned size and experience, as well as being the better, more powerful striker. I also think his vicious leg kicks could make a big difference.

Aldo wins, his striking is on Anderson Silva level, nobody can touch him on the feet.

I love Barao, but at this point it's difficult for me to pick against Aldo under any circumstance. He's hit the Anderson Silva/GSP plane, where I'll never pick against him in his division.

I have to agree... Barao may end up being better, but right now i'd go with Aldo all day
