I'm also unaware of how good Aldo's chin is, Edgar was dropping guys at 155 and I'm interested to see if he can KO guys at 145.
Go look at UFC 129 and tell me who fought Rory MacDonald. Then if you wanna do another search, look at who Jim Miller fought at UFC on FOX: Diaz vs Miller.

I think Bendo has a good chance against Diaz. Its just the question of what version of Nick Diaz shows up.
How about you do some searching.

The one that got his butt kicked and slammed by Rory in Toronto or the one that defeated Jim Miller on Fox. Ask yourself that question before assuming you think Diaz gonna win. Plus Bendo is a very strong and all round complete athlete.

Why are you bring up Bendo in this division? I have specifically stated Edgar hasn't 'earned' the right to fight Aldo.

Its gonna be a boring fight because everybody knows Aldo is going to win and if you wanna bring up Bendo, he just exposed Edgar. Edgar is flat footed when checking kicks. Easy win for Aldo who is notorious for throwing those kicks.

Hell, I think Faber and Edgar would see the same results on any day with Aldo. The similarity between the two, they don't rely on using their feet unless springing around to use their fists or absorb leg kicks. The only thing they got going for them is cardio and heart. Beyond that, I don't think either can bring something different to Aldo.
I never said Nate would defiantly win. I said there is no way Bendo finishes him.

I brought up Bendo because you complained about Edgar not finishing fights. When Bendo doesn't either and he is a big LW.

I never said Edgar would beat Aldo. Not sure if you even read my post. Bendo didn't expose Frankie. He had 2 close decision wins over a guy he out-weighed by 25lbs. Thats sad.

You are calling Nate, Nick. You are making claims that I never even said. I can't follow your post, it makes no sense.

Lamas is a good fighter, a win over Hioki is a quality Featherweight win.

The UFC were right to go with the Edgar fight though.

Edgar is not a boring fighter. That's just crazy talk, he not Jon Fitch people. The dude brings it 110% most of the time (last fight maybe only 90%..same with bendo)...

I think Aldo's swollen foot is going to help Edgar out alot. Thats is one week maybe 2 weeks right before the fight he won't be able to do any real cardio. And we all know Frankie can push the pace...
