WEC featherweight contender Jose Aldo is living a dream.
Aldo, 23, faces champion Mike Brown Wednesday at WEC 44 in Las Vegas in his first bid for a major title. He has steamrolled five consecutive opponents since his WEC debut last June, and done it with two things: speed and explosiveness.
Not unlike his idol, Mike Tyson, who at Aldo’s age was laying waste to boxing’s heavyweight division.
It took Aldo just 8 seconds to cinch a contender spot with a double knee knockout of Cub Swanson in June – his eighth consecutive victory. Swanson had just bested Japanese standout Hiroyuki Takaya and was rebuilding towards a title run.

To me it's the matchup that the world wants to see. It's the undying question, which is better...
1) Technicality and a Learned, studied, game plan
or
2) Balls and cunning and youth which gives you unlimited confidence.

This definitely has possibility to be fight of the year

are there any lines out for this fight yet, not an easy fight by any means, but I would really like to see Aldo as a dog here so I can lay some cash

It's gonna be Luck and Confidence VS Skill and Strategy.
Aldo has the power to stop the fight with 1 punch, though so does brown, however i think the winner will be whoever controls the flow of the fight and the striking.
Probably brown but im pacing myself for an upset of note

Brown is -130 while Aldo is Even money, wont really be an upset by any means...

Aldo TKO RD 2

He's too fast and athletic for Brown

I think Brown takes this with his power, GnP, and sheer toughness.

Edit: Damn!
