Bringing Maynard is the only x factor her for me. Other than that wildcard I think Mendes takes this fight. Even with Maynard though I still think the cut is taking its toll on Aldo based on a seemingly lacking speed and explosiveness In his last couple outings. I think Aldo's run as fw king is on borrowed time and predict tommorow night that clock runs out. Mendes via wrestlef***.

I'm afraid of that tbh...

If he's smart Mendes will take Also down very early on and wrestle the f*** out of him...he could tire him out for the later rds.

This has a big chance of becoming Silva vs Sonnen 2...with or without a sub.

Still, I believe Also will catch Mendes with a big left.

.



BELIEVE!

Oh please..-_-

Mendes is a poor man's Faber at best.

The only way he wins this fight is if Aldo looks beyond terrible. Im talking Karo Parisiyan painkiller terrible, or BJ Penn at WW terrible.

Menedes is a much more skilled wrestler than Faber, he is also bigger and stronger than Faber. That said I doubt he has Fabers heart as very few could even be considered in that realm.

Aldo is gonna stop him, and it's going to be awesome. Chad's only path to victory is to rush him take it to the ground and lay on him.

Aldo is super athletic, one of the best athletes in the UFC and I think his scrambling abilities are being overlooked a bit.

lol skilled.


Mendes is the most basic double legger you will ever see.

His whole game is so based on his natural athleticism it's hideous. He has very little actual skills....which is why he has no offense to speak of.

What he maybe has in wrestling over Faber he lacks in the following:

Heart
Speed
Scrambling ability
Striking
BJJ
Cardio
Experience
Finishing ability

I dont think Mendez quite has that shot he speaks off that will take aldo off his feet - Aldo's take down defense is impressive and only when tired he seems to be taken down.

Mendez will be forced to stand - he is not to bad at it for a fighter with a wrestling base but his low hands and lose style will cost him. Aldo could even work them kicks if he becomes comfortable at defending the takedowns.
