Good for Aldo.
It's about time Dana respects the actual FW contenders instead of treating them as sh*t by putting them aside for the LW's to have a shot at Aldo after winning a amazing amount of 0 fights at his division.

Lamas is a joke, and Cub has even less of a chance. all about KZ

I'd like to see Cub or KZ against him the same amount as I would Pettis. The way the first Cub fight went doesn't really tell us anything about how they matchup. Aldo would probably run through all 4 guys in the conversation.

Lamas beat Cub. Cub is by far the worst of the 4 fighters being discussed, then Lamas, then KZ, then pettis

Well if I remember correctly out of the 4 UFC opponents only 1 aldo has finished and it was one dimensional earned his title shot at fw chad mendes. The other 3 were former lws who made him go to decision the only person I would like to fight aldo at 145 is korean zombie if he gets his cardio right which is no guarantee but he can beat lamas in a contenders match on the same card and then get the shot.

Pettis is a better striker than anyone he has faced and has the best cardio outside of edgar of aldo's opponents, i'd rather see aldo vs pettis then see a squash match between lamas and aldo while pettis waits for the melendez vs bendo winner praying that said winner doesn't get hurt so he has to wait to ******* september at the earliest to fight again. Aldo really wanted the edgar match too it was not forced upon him and people weren't too mad with koch getting a shot by default too.

Lamas and Aldo aren't the same fighter. Lamas isn't getting Aldo down and has no way of mounting offense against him standing Cub is at least fast enough and good enough standing to maybe land something decent. Aldo is a ******* monster though none of these guys have a legitimate shot at beating him.

Lamas and Cub both get wrecked. KZ if his cardio is good gives aldo a run. Pettis is a great striker, fight is close.

And Pettis doesn't have the second best cardio after Frankie. Kenflo had better cardio.

I think KZ and Pettis have the same defensive flaws standing and both get hammered by Aldo for their flawed boxing. KZ is probably the overall better and more creative grappler of the two. I agree that those are the two most intriguing matchups but since KZ is winning fights within that division he should be ahead of Pettis.
