This is one of the least likely outcomes. I think Frankie point strikes while getting 1-2 TDs per round for points. Praying to see Aldo leg kick him into oblivion for 25 minutes or hurting him with a combo then blasting his face with a knee as Frankie goes for a desperate TD.

Good point. Frankie only has 1 KO and 1 TKO (inside the UFC), everything else are decision wins. I can't wait for that fight though, I respect both fighters so much. I'm leaning toward Aldo myself, but I can see it being really close.

No idea who's gonna win. I'm leaning Edgar. I like where this is headed tho. I hope he does move to 155 because I think he'd do very well against most opponents. Plus we don't get to see a lot of fighters moving up in weight in the UFC.

In the past i had Frankie beating Aldo but now i don't see anyone beating him at this point. his grappling and wrestling have been proven to be very good which makes him extremely dangerous to everyone in the 145 and 155 divisions.

Theoretically, BJ Penn vs Aldo at 155, who do you see winning?

Edgar is elite, but he ain't beating Aldo.

Can't wait for Aldo to move up. Interesting matchups for him in the lightweight division...

Aldo vs Diaz
Aldo vs Pettis
Aldo vs Henderson

Anderson Silva
Aldo - Dos Anjos - Mayday - Weidman - Machida - Jones

So basically Frankie Edgar is already FW champion. If he doesn't beat Aldo he'll just get another shot and beat whoever they put in front of him then.

Ah yes the pillow puncher with one KO and 2 TKOs in 17 fights shall surely KO the striking phenom who has never been knocked down let alone KO/TKOd. You should totally bet your house on that certainty.
