To be perfectly honest aside from sharp elbows the ground game he displayed was worthless.

I want Edgar to go down to 145 and take his title, then we can call Edgar the P4P killer because I don't honestly rate Aldo as a true worthy fighter to claim the P4P status they are giving him, I think Kenny Florian could well take his belt via submission on the ground.
i think mendes will beat him but not florian, florian is never getting a belt, i think edgar should go to 145 too and win the belt and dominate at his own weightclass while having 2 different belts in his mma career

Seriously tho you only need to compare Aldo to Edgar to see that he is no P4P god, if Aldo is even P4P top 5 then Edgar must be the GOAT because when stylistically you match those two up, the only foreseeable outcome is Edgar smashes Aldo in every department, and I don't even think Edgar if the best LW in the world, in a world of many great LW contenders, so this servilely effects my opinion of Aldo's P4P status.

maynard,edgar,miller,melendez,alvarez,pettis,guill ard and barboza would pummel aldo i think, i think soti could beat him too and he has better bjj than aldo too, and oliviera too, he just looks like he should not be anywhere near lightweight never mind mendes for now.

Are you serious?

Aldo has much better striking than Frankie Edgar. Mark Hominick would absolutely tool Frankie Edgar standing, so I think that in itself speaks volumes for Jose's striking, especially when you consider he was ill for this fight and noticeably so.

The only thing I was unimpressed with from Aldo was his BJJ. I expected him to put a clinic on Hominick when it hit the mat, but he was unable to pass guard once.

How ever, Aldo still has vastly superior striking to Edgar and elite level take down defense and very explosive take downs of his own. He's got much more power in his strikes than edgar too.

What the hell are you basing this on ? Edgar out boxed BJ Penn.

I think after watching the fight would beat Hominick in every single aspect of MMA and would easily hold his own with Aldo and be able to throw him off guard with obvious wrestling advantage.


and if you think Aldo can stuff Edgar you're mad.

His striking is his only A class attribute imo, his movement sucks, clinch can't recall seeing much of it but you can't just assume its going to be any good it an unknown, TD's are good, not world class but no a weak part of this skill set, Ground game ok could do with seeing more of it before casting real judgment but first impressions "what a let down".

You need more than just elite level striking to be considered P4P top level these days, and he has not proved that, I would compare him in many ways to Shogun but I think Shogun back in Pride was much superior on a P4P scale, I think you know how I rated Shogun now even after the victory over Machida, I think you know I never considered him the No.1 LHW and in fact believed he would fall short to a number of current top LWH's well on a P4P scale comparison right now thats how I rate Aldo against other P4P top rated fighters.

I have been borderline on him before, thinking we really need to see more of his skill set before we can make a credible shout for a P4P top class rating, but all we saw at UFC 129 was his elite striking only been fractionally above another top striker, when you think Silva you see striking miles ahead of other elite strikers hence why the P4P status swings in his favor, Aldo does not share than dominance, so unlike Silva his striking alone wont seal his top P4P status.

But still he has a level of striking that could put him in the P4P top list on a MMA scale if the rest of his game is equal to making him an elite all round fighter, and the other day he fell well short of showing that.

I believe Edgar is quicker, has better movement, better wrestling and could take Aldo down and smash him up to a decision or sub him. I think Penn is still P4P a better fighter than Aldo easily.

Baiting you by posting a light hearted remark about your sanity for you thinking a non wrestler can stuff a NCAA DIV 1 wrestler ?

WOW this is what you have stooped too.

anyways i stick by my point Aldo has nmo chance against Edgar and he will not be able to stuff Edgar's takedown.

You´ve only seen the true Aldo for the 1st three and a half minutes. Then he gassed.
In that time he schooled Mark Hominic, none other than American Champ in Kick Boxing.
That´s what you gotta take in consideration in this fight, cause in the remaining time he was not there 100% and still managed to put on an hell of a performance.
