Frankie lost to Bendo because he threw seven times as many feints as he did actual strikes. I think going down to 145 or even 135, he would have a lot more confidence in his power and would commit to his striking.

That being said, I still think Frankie will lose to Aldo. Aldo is just too dynamic. Incredible striking, nearly impossible to take down, power in droves, and he's fixed his cardio problem. It's going to take someone with unparalelled wrestling and a marble slab chin to beat Aldo, and I don't think that there is a guy right now, or in the next 5 years who can or will be able to even come close.

I think Edgar beats Cruz pretty convincingly. Cruz has never really impressed me and I think Faber would beat him if they ever fought again and I think Barao will take the belt.
