Luckbox go into your user cp and just press save, it's happened to me a few times, it will be fine after you press save without changing the code.

Frankie is paying 2.60 per $1 you place on him. Aldo has bad odds.

KRY it's still showing the BJ one.

It's showing the other one for me. Weird.

A Superfight indeed. But I dont understand why Edgar is such a big underdog. This guy arguably never lost the Lightweight title. The 1st Bendo fight, 40% of the MMA community has the fight scored for him and the second fight, 70% of the MMA community gave him the nod. So in my eyes, this is a Champion VS Champion fight.

On to the topic, if Edgar is not badly affected by the weight cut (which he shouldn't be) he should be able to win this match. Stylistically, he is a nightmare matchup for Aldo. Excellent footwork and boxing to combat with Aldo on feet with a solid wrestling base (especially now, he is in featherweight).

On top of that, Aldo tend to gas out in the championship rounds evident from the Hominick and Florian fight as compared to Edgar who went 5 full action pack rounds with BJ (twice) Maynard, and Bendo(twice) without looking gased. Aldo best chance will be a big finish early in the fight but hey, Edgar has proven time and time again that he can fight back after being on the verge of getting knock out.

I think Edgar will win, but I'm not surprised he is an underdog going into this fight. Even though he has the more impressive resume. The fact of the matter is he is going to a weightclass he has never fought at and immediately taking on the champ. I don't know many fighters that wouldn't be the underdog going into that situation.

I have aldo on this, and I think it will be shockingly easy, in addition to having the best tdd in all of the ufc, he has that special something that anderson silva has, not as much mind you, but he can pull off some awesome moves on the feet, plus he's bjj.

for those looking at frankie's cardio, I doubt it will be the same at 145 as it is at 155, weight cuts also tend to cut cardio. so if he makes it to the championship rounds, I hardly see him just wearing aldo out

all that being said, I'm looking for a round 1-3 ko/tko going aldo's way

fighters I like
145 Jose Aldo
155 Melvin Guillard
170 Carlos Condit
185 Anderson Silva
205 Jon Jones/Machida
265 Alistair Overeem/Frank Mir

Totally agree here. Don't get me wrong, Aldo is rightfully favored here. But IMHO, Frankie should be getting closer to 2.25-2.40 as opposed to the nearly 2.90 he's getting at Pinnacle, for example. That's too juicy for me pass up.

Aldo is without question the most dangerous fighter Frankie's faced, but he matches up well Jose. Jose's two biggest weaknesses are his wrestling and his cardio. Frankie's two biggest strengths are his wrestling and his cardio. Frankie's also very fast (less so in comparison at 145), has tremendous footwork, and excellent boxing. He's also great at sticking to a gameplan. If you were to draw up Aldo's worst match-up, it would be Frankie Edgar.

Another factor working against Aldo, is the fact that he's been injured and hasn't fought in over a year. Anyone that's followed my posts, knows I'm a huge believer in cage rust. And when you're a fighter with a questionable gas tank to begin with, and you're facing a fighter that seemingly never tires (even after getting rocked), and sets an incredible pace, that's a major concern. On the other hand, even though Frankie is a natural 45er, the fact is, he's never made the cut. Being a wrestler by trade helps, but that still needs to be considered, especially when it comes to recovering after any major blows. Aldo will still be the bigger fighter, but Frankie's hung with Gray and Bendo so that's a non-factor to me.

Aldo's got the potential to finish Frankie (duh). But if this fight goes past the second round- which I fully expect- I can't see Frankie not taking this one. I worry about the cut for him, but with Aldo's layoff, I think it's a wash. I think Frankie will show enough movement skills to avoid an Aldo finish (although I can see him getting hurt). I think Edgar will wear him out with his frenetic pace, and grind out an almost Guida-esque decision. The main thing that concerns me is Frankie's chin and his ability to recover, after such a weight cut. In the end, too much value on Edgar here. I'll be taking him for the upset, with some slight hesitation.

If you guys are actually +260 or better on Edgar I'd suggest betting about a third of everything you own on him... and then the two-thirds on Aldo via bovada.lv @ -210.

Edgar is gonna prove he is the man tommorow night and prove Aldo just isn't quite up to that level yet.
