Aldo's chances of a finish are better, he's by far the most dangerous guy Edgar has fought on the feet, even more dangerous than BJ but I don't see Edgar looking to make this a striking affair, I think he'll try and take down Aldo. Aldo's got some pretty good TDD but Edgar is by far the best fighter he's ever fought, if this drags out late I see Edgar stealing four and five and this could end up coming down to who wins 1, 2, and 3 if Aldo doesn't finish.

Edgar by split.

I am almost sure this match up will make for an awesome fight. I'm going with a bit of an underdog pick and taking Edgar to win this one. I think they will meet again at some point regardless of the outcome but I see Edgar coming out and putting on possibly the best performance of his career and winning a decision or stopping Aldo in the later rounds by fighter at a fast pace throughout and using a combination his striking, wrestling and work in the clinch. Very tough fight to pick a winner though as I could picture Aldo devastating Edgar as well. I look forward to seeing this one.

I think either Aldo finishes Frankie, or Frankie wins a UD.

...Exactly. Aldo can pull off a wicked finish. Frankie has serious heart but if Aldo lands a sick flying knee on the button----it's over my friend...

I'm going bold here, I'm picking Jose Aldo via second rd (t)ko.

I really want Edgar to win! Nothing against Aldo but it would just be epic if Edgar won. Edgar via UD.

I just don't see anyone at 145 beating Aldo. I think Frankie will do the best so far, but it will end the same as the others.

Only way Edgar win is if Aldo gases. Which I think he will. Edgar UD.

I think Edgar will pull the decision. Why...

*He can be hurt badly, but over come it and battle back.
*Exceptional conditioning and cardio for days EVEN after getting pummelled.
*Pretty fast with very good movement. Much better technique and footwork than Mighty Mouse.
* Susceptible to leg kicks, but with 10 rounds under his belt now against Bendo he should know how to check the leg kicks by now or counter it.
* Wrestler who can wear down Aldo.

Aldo is a far dynamic fighter, but can he put em away. Edgar's pretty damn hard to finish. I thought Maynard nailed em pretty damn hard, but he couldn't finish...x2.

Unless Edgar has a bad weight cut I think he takes the UD or split. Hominick laid the blueprint.
