It's like trying to find out who can beat a smaller Anderson Silva. Outgrappler him like Chael tried to do.

That didn't work as he faced a strong grappler in Mendes.



The way I see it, it's more like trying to beat a smaller Anderson Silva with Chuck Liddell's take down defense and uncanny ability to pop right back up when taken down.

I've come to accept that although I dislike both of them I can accept Jones and Aldo won't be beaten by anyone other than myself it all depends on whether I wanna drop to 145 or go up to 205

Well I admit I want Aldo to lose but I would be satisfied with good refereeing...

When Aldo grabbed the fence he should of had a point deduction...It stopped Mendes from a possible scoring situation and so should of been dealt with accordingly...

Even if I like a fighter I see this I think an immediate point should be taken..

This time it was very clear the grab helped him...

I'd be fine with a point deduction, if that is the standard that everyone is held to. Most times the first time someone grabs the cage it is a warning. Even if Yamasaki had seen the fence grab, deducting a point would have been like DQing Erick Silva or deducting a point from Lesnar against Mir. . . a vast deviation from what is the norm.

Besides, even if they had deducted a point, the result would have been the same. A KO is a KO, no matter what the score was.

Except, Mendes would've been up 0 to -1 on the scorecards at the time of the KO.

True. They should have DQed Aldo. Would have served him right for not finishing Kenny Florian like everyone else has. He is such a fake, overrated cheater.

Seriously, how can people not like Aldo? His fights are usually amazing and he's got an awesome background story.

He grabbed the fence while getting taken down. Whether instinctual or intentional, it was a foul that didn't get called. Usually when it does get called, it is a warning. Did it change the outcome of the fight? It was evident pretty early on in that fight that Mendes was living on borrowed time. He couldn't check the leg kicks, was getting stuffed hard on the takedown, and had eaten an uppercut and a hard body shot. Maybe there is some butterfly effect where either a point is deducted and swings the momentum or Aldo doesn't grab the cage and gets taken down, thereby changing everything. Maybe. And maybe me writing this post causes a small child in Papua New Guinea to exhale, which, when amplified through their table fan, causes a wind that gains strength as it travels over the pacific ocean, eventually becoming a hurricane which travels up the river and kills me dead with a swordfish to the face.

Nobody is going too, the only other options are bart, hioki, and the Korean zombie but all will fall.

Time for 155.

I don't see anyone taking him out at that weight. I would like to see Hominick vs Florian. To see who would have the best chance of getting another shot at him.

Edgar and Edgar alone. No one else is good enough at the right combination of skills.

I think the guy to beat Aldo is a wrestler who strikes phenomenally. You get Aldo to train for wrestling and then you try to strike with him. Attack the muscle groups he's not prepared for.

No one else can pull that tactic off.
