If he beats Nunes he should get his fight with Aldo, and I think Kenflo could do it. He makes some good points about being the first real well rounded fighter to face Aldo. And he'll be bigger than Aldo too.

I think he should just stay at 145 though, but he says he's going to move back up.

Well, good luck to him. He's one of the more respectable guys in MMA, so I wish him the best of luck in his new challenge at 145. I don't think he should just disregard Aldo, he's one of the best P4P fighters in the world, and although Florian will have the height advantage, I don't think that will stop the stinging striking assault he'll face from Aldo. And then there's the fact that he chokes in big fights.

I'm gonna' shove that up your ass, and turn you into a popsicle!

I don't think he'll pack enough power to KO Aldo. Aldo is lightening fast, very explosive, with powerful strikes.

Very interesting match up though. Aldo vs Edgar is where it's at.

So he thinks he is going to drop to 145, get the belt...then return to 155? Why the confidence? He wants to get his ass kicked at 155 again? Why?

I used to like the guy, but KenFlo has been overrated and is waaay too cocky here. What strikers or BJJ artists has he faced lately? The amazing crouching Gomi who was out struck by Guida? Guida himself? Perhaps he thinks Joe Daddy is some amazing opponent.

He is right, the 145 division is weak, but Aldo has destroyed them all...what else is he supposed to do? Aldo will outstrike him, and Kenny holds no BJJ advantage here. Only thing he can rely on in that fight is experience and being the bigger man. Who knows how Kenny will look at 145 though, lets not all assume he will have the same gas tank as he did at 155.

Pretty cocky for a choke artist. Aldo would/will destroy him...then he has no where to go.

All you guys laughing might have an egg on your face after the fight.

Kenny has a 4 inch reach advantage and has competed at MW , im not saying he will win but by far this will be Aldo's toughest fight if they get to go head to head and he will be very powerful at 145.

Velasquez will be back

I think he's looking in the wrong direction. He could make 135 after Aldo chops one of his skinny legs off.

You guys have something way confused. Cutting a weight class doesn't add power to you. Kenny is going to have ZERO strength when he faces Aldo, who will be as explosively powerful as ever.

Plus who knows if he'll even get past Nunes. Can't believe that fight is still so far away.

Aldo is way too quick for Kenny. Submission by leg kicks!
