Let's say there is no Aldo in the FW division.

But as long as there is a guy named Chad Mendes in the FW division, Kenny won't win any titles.

Kenny sucks against wrestlers and Mendes would be the same story as Maynard.

Kenny should focus on his next fight and forget about moving up to LW again, when he hasn't even fought at FW...

Why a guy as lean as Kenny would drop another weight division is beyond me. Dropping in weight classes is for guys who have muscle mass to spare, not guys who need to donate bone marrow to do it.

I won't hate on him since I don't really know how this is going to work out, but I honestly see him getting bullied around by wrestlers at 145, all the same.

Can't see Kenny winning a belt in any weight division. He'll be a total rake with no power at all at 145. No wrestling to speak of either. Aldo kicks his legs off and finishes him in the 3rd - 5th rounds.

One handed Faber? Did he injure his hand in that fight as well? I know he broke it in the Brown fight but didn't know he hurt it in the Aldo fight. Either way another hand wouldn't of stopped his legs being brutalised.

Aldo makes good fighters (Brown and Faber) look aweful. No way Kenny changes that imo.

Yeah, I typed that late last night, don't mind that goof up, I was thinking about the Brown fight.

Kenny has far better striking, BJJ, general grappling, and raw skill/talent than anyone Aldo has faced.

Aldo is the single most overhyped fighter I have seen in a very, very long time. He has beaten literally 3 guys, 1 of which got cut by the UFC and was KO'd by Rob Emerson in 12 seconds, the other 2 are good fighters, but would struggle a lot against any top 10 LW.

Aldo made good fighters in a weak division look not so good, and that makes him beat Kenny? A guy who almost took Penn to a decision and went to a decision with the #2 LW in the world, a guy who has defeated Guida, Gomi, Lauzon, Huerta all with ease?

Kenny has faced and beaten guys much more talented and skilled than Aldo, and has faced off with some of the greats of the sport.

Aldo will not get passed Kenny, unless of course Kenny comes in looking like a literal stick because of the weight drop and has absolutely 0 weight to him.

I don't think Kenny can get passed Nunes.
And if he does, he will most likely get Chad Mendes - a wrestler and Kenny is allergic to wrestlers.

I have Aldo beating Kenny 10/10 times, no matter where the fight takes place.
It's something i just feel honestly.

That only proves my point that Aldo's hype is absolutely ridiculous.

Aldo beats Kenny 10/10? Aldo hasn't even beaten anyone comparable to a top 10 LW, and he can already beat someone who has defeated and fought fighters more skilled than himself 10/10 times?

My point is easily proven just by your post.

Like i've said - i just feel like this. I have a feeling and i'm gonna trust it until proven wrong. Maybe it's hype, maybe it's not, but we will find out in the coming months/years.

But at the same time, the way you are talking about Kenny sounds like a hype also.
I'm talking about the 145 lbs Kenny Florian - the one that has zero fights at FW, not the LW Kenny.
He is a great fighter, no doubt. But we have ZERO information on how he will perform at this weight class.

I think we should talk more after his first official 145 lbs weigh-in.



But when i think of the 155 weigh in Kenny, i don't kno what to say...

What I say about Kenny has been proven and verified. Kenny has, in fact, defeated fighters of much higher caliber than anyone Aldo has faced, and indeed as skilled if not more so than Aldo himself. Kenny is a very good fighter, he's been in there with legends such as Penn, he's gone to a decision with the #2 LW in the world (who is much, MUCH better than Aldo), etc.

I'm not hyping Kenny up at all, that's his actual resume, it's what he's actually done.

What Aldo has done is beat a terrible fighter in Manny, and two good fighters in a weak division in Faber and Brown.

Aldo is all hype, and Kenny will expose it, so long as he's not so skinny and weak from the cut that he simply can't compete at the weight.

Skill wise, Kenny picks Aldo apart all day long in every aspect of the game, there's nothing that Aldo has done or anyone Aldo as faced to prove otherwise, he hasn't beaten anybody.
