This could easily go very similar to Aldo/Faber but I think when Edgar works on something, he gets extremely good at it extremely quickly. He'll be drilling kick checks and avoiding all day every day. Like Mercy said, he's gone 10 rounds with Bendo, and although Aldo as another animal when it comes to leg kicks, I don't think he'll get his movement taken away early enough for it to have a huge impact on the fight.

I think round 1 we'll see Edgar get smashed by something huge. Aldo is a fast starter and we all know Edgar gets hit with big shots early on, and Aldo is a lot faster than Maynard.

Round 2-3 will be fairly even with Edgar starting to pull ahead midway through the 3rd, with rounds 4 and 5 resulting in pretty easy rounds for Edgar and maybe a late TKO.

Its pretty hard to check a leg kick while using so much movement and if he stops moving he gets tagged on the chin. Striking with Aldo would be a huge mistake as he is why more versatile than Bendo, Penn or Maynard.

Edgar's only chance is to make this a dog fight, takedowns, clinching up against the cage, trying his hardest to catch any leg kicks which would get Aldo tired...its his only chance.

"I think round 1 we'll see Edgar get smashed by something huge."

I also think if this happens Aldo is not letting him off the hook.

Aldo will steamroll Frankie and make it look easy.

This is the most excited I've been for a fight since Silva/Sonnen 2. Two of the top 5 P4P fighters in the world IMO.

Originally I had Edgar via boxing clinic, but now I'm leaning Aldo via leg kick shit storm.

**** it. I have no idea what's going to happen. I'm just amped up for this one.

Great fight.

Have to favor Aldo because he can actually finish when he has Frankie rocked.

I wouldn't say Aldo's cardio is suspect, but I don't think it's anywhere near what Frankies is... and unlike some guys who cut down a weight class, the only difference I see with Frankie at this weight is he won't be grossly outsized.

If Aldo doesn't finish in one or two, Edgar will in 4 or 5... I'm betting on the latter.

When you're this size, 10lb is a lot. Edgar may have worked down to it and won't need to cut anything, but it's his first time in the division and he's taking on the kingpin.

Add to that how well rounded and tricky Aldo is, he has an answer for everything and finishing ability everywhere, Edgar will need to be more cautious than normal but he'll have to be aggressive to score points.

This is a close fight on paper but Aldo is by far Edgar's most dangerous opponent for a long time. Jose is young, hungry, this will be his 6th title defense at 145lb and Frankie's first fight at 145lb, my money is on the ultra-impressive Champ.

I'd have liked Edgar to get a title eliminator fight first, get a win on the board to forget his last two fights, then take on Aldo. Not complaining, I'm ecstatic about this fight, I just hope Dana's love for Frankie remains if he loses.

And Edgar is by far the hardest opponent Aldo will have fought as well.

Will be interesting to see if Frankie can get him down.
