Edgar via not standing directly in front of Aldo & allowing himself to be kicked in the leg 1,000,000 times.

Damn, it's pretty crazy how split down the middle the votes are. I wonder if they'll be this close when they do the pro's picks on sherdog.

1. BJ "The Prodigy" Penn
2. Dan "Hollywood" Henderson
3. George "Rush" St Pierre

I think Aldo will get the win here, but if match goes into the championship rounds it will favor Edgar. We the MMA fan do not want a decision here because at this point we do not want to see another instant rematch. TKO Aldo round 2

This is actually the second super fight to my knowledge.

BJ Penn vs GSP II was the first since BJ was the LW champ who narrowly lost to Edgar the 1st time and more decisively the 2nd time.

Vitor vs LHW title holder could have been since Vitor was the ex-champ, but it was awhile back.

This time Frankie was a champ north of 145lbs who's coming down so I don't really see him as a major under dog at all.

Edgar is use to being the fastest, but Aldo will be his quickest opponent unless he trained with Mighty Mouse. He does train with Phil Nurse who's pretty quick in his own right so I think that's pretty good practice on paper of course.

Aldo ironically even though he's the featherweight champ is actually probably bigger weighing in at 160-170 from what I remember. So who's stronger then. I'd have to say Edgar because of his wrestling background and the fact he's fought extremely strong fighters in the LHW division in Maynard and Bendo.

I would agree Aldo would leg kick em to death, but for a championship caliber fighter who's already experienced that he should know better. Plus all he needs to do is watch the Faber fight. We're going to see Edgar out point em in and stifle Aldo repeatedly wearing em out minute by minute round by round.

If there's a finish rest assured it's Aldo as he's the more powerful and dynamic striker of the two. Personally if there's an "upset" this would be the fight to bet on for the odds. Edgar has the tools and mind set to win, but it might not be the most fan friendly.

I think even for the pros pick it'll be fairly even.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Edigar is a runner. Even the audience gets dizzy while he spins around. I hate his style and his outscoring boring method of winning, rarely finishing a fight. With the risk of being kicked, I foresee even more wild circling.
Rooting to Aldo to connect anything from his arsenal.

After all those leg kicks from Benson (plus the infamous upkick), Frankie's gonna be extra bouncy in this one, expecting impeccable footwork and a lot of jerky movement. Aldo's cardio better be tiptop!

Personally I love both fighters and I have absolutely no idea who is going to win. That is something that never seems to happen in MMA for me.

I'm really surprised with how many people don't enjoy watching Frank, he's one of the most entertaining fighters IMO.

Whats the betting lines for this? Personally I think there is some good money to be made on Aldo if the odds are decent.

Edit: Thats weird, I see my old BJ Penn sig, even though thats not the one I have in my User CP.

Should be fixed now. Seems to be happening to a few members lately. I just updated your profile and it's reset to the other sig.
