"To be honest with you, if you were to say, ‘What would be your dream fight for [Aldo]?' I think a dream fight for him, which I think would just be a fight that everyone would love to see, would be Frankie Edgar vs. Jose Aldo. That fight to me is the fight that everybody would want to see simply just because, not to disrespect anybody at the 155-pound division to think that Jose has the right to go up there without fighting in it, I just think that, as their styles, the way they match up, it would be one of the greatest fights of all-time, I think. It has the potential to be, just because of their styles."

Can't say I did't see this one coming.

Bad business move if they do make this fight happen.

I'd take Aldo. In the words of Kevin Ferguson "All day, all long."

Aldo would beat Frankie as easy as he beat Urijah. I would prefer to see Aldo fight BJ. And Frankie vs. Urijah would be a great fight!

IMO Frankie would be a tough fight for Aldo.....but, with that being said, I have Jose finishing Frankie in the 3rd or 4th round.

This is taken out of context. Helwani pressed him to say this. He said they'll fight whoever they put in front of him several times. This was the "dream scenario".

Kid Nate trying to reinforce his opinion here.

As of now this will not happen. Aldo is a VS product and they will not be happy letting him move up to the UFC and the UFC isn't going to let Frank drop as there are too many fights at 155 right now. I am suprised so many think Frank would get crushed he has better movement then Faber and IMO would try to use his wrestling for a Silva Sonnen type fight and Frank has much better Sub d then Chael. I'm not sure who would win but I think I would favor Frankie.

Aldo would kill Penn IMO. Poor BJs getting old. He has been in some wars and its showing. Id say BJ is too slow for Edgar, and therefore too slow for Aldo. Edgar is a much better fight. IMO it will all be moot when Maynard beats Edgar again.

Frankie would completely destroy faber.
And would most likely shut Aldo down
