Not saying he can't beat Frankie, but if he does it will be his best win by far.
Sure it will be his best win. I just don't like the matchup for Frankie.

If anyone can do this, it is Jose Aldo.

I don't like division jumping at all. The way things are going these days, even the most active of fighters are only fighting three times a year on average. If someone were to become the champ in two weight classes it would just bring the amount of times each title is defended to a screaching halt. I'm not even going to mention three titles cause I don't think Aldo is making 135, I also don't think his buddy is losing that belt either. Maybe he has thinned out the FW division to the degree were he needs to move up, but I personally think he should just leave the belt back there with him. There is A LOT of competition at LW... IF he were to win, he's going to be very busy there for years.

FW is stacked right now.

BW is a shitty pipe dream, Barao won't lose the belt and that cut is ghastly.

LW is a great goal for the future.

I would be surprised to see Aldo go down. Not that I think he couldn't or that he wouldn't do well, it just doesn't make sense to cut down further to plan on going up 2 weight classes after that. I think the Frankie fight could tell a lot about both Frankie's and Aldo's future.

Aldo can easily hold to belts, FW and LW. Not a chance for BW though. He's had trouble cutting to 145. So..., what kinda sense does it make to believe that he can make 135 and still be physically capable to do anything? Anyways, after he runs through Edgar, (don't lie to yourself, he's either gonna finish him early, or dismantle him for 5 rounds), he should definitely fight for the LW belt. I mean..., they're letting the former LW champ, coming off of 2, 2 ******* LOSSES!, fight for the FW belt. It'd only make sense to let him fight for the LW belt after he murders Edgar.

Aldo couldn't even run through Florian and now he's gonna run through Little Rocky?!

Get real bro. Frankie's taking that strap.... via close decision and then he'll defend it in an immediate rematch.

This is why I don't get people not giving Edgar a chance because Edgar is flat out a better fighter than Kenflo.
