Aldo would kill cruz. Absolutely murder cruz, maybe in a couple years cruz would be closer and lose in a less massive way but right now cruz is way out of his league. I'd say faber would probably beat cruz in the rematch and damn near beat him in their last fight but aldo.. aldo would put a beating on cruz worse than he did on faber.

Why would the UFC put Aldo in with Cruz, when they have Chad, Hioki and Florian.....? They need to find some BWs for Cruz, but the featherweight division is looking the deepest it has ever looked in the UFC, let alone the talent in the Bellator FW division they could look to scalp down the road (if Aldo does beat these 3).
Yea this has been on my mind for awhile now actually. It would be unique to see Aldo with the speed disadvantage but if faber did what he did to Cruz sat night by dropping him multiple times, I'd imagine a guy like aldo who has more powerful and technical striking than faber would make quick work of cruz. Cruz wouldn't be able to get the fight on the ground and if he did, Aldo's jiu jitsu is no ******* joke so its a lose-lose for a guy like cruz who wouldn't be able to control aldo from the top.
Personally, I'd prefer to see aldo go up to 155 when all the dust settles in that division. There are so many interesting match ups at lightweight for Aldo.
3 hard leg kicks to Cruz and he's not moving anymore
that is what i would say usally but cruz is damn nice. His style/speed/standing is crazy. This is one fight where i don't know who will win. I know aldo has more power but everything else is equal or to close to judge.
I know styles make fights, but Aldo absolutely ruined Faber, yet Faber and Cruz had a reasonably well matched fight. In my head I don't see how this could possibly go well for Cruz, especially as Aldo is closer to a 155'er than a 135'er.
