I think Aldo finishes this fight, he may be happy defending his title with decision wins nowadays, but he's still a killer and can show this against Mendes.

Aldo has looked lackluster in his last two fights, albeit he had the flu against Hominick so that can be excused. I think Mendes will pose some problems to Aldo with his wrestling and manage to keep the fight on the mat for a good period of time, but in the end Aldo's superior skill should win him a decision.
Mendes is tough so I dont think he will be finished but there's going to be some damage done in this fight for sure.

I pray to God Aldo doesn't get wrestle****ed. Fortunately or unfortunately that's all Mendes can do to him so if Aldo can stuff the first few takedowns I think he will finish this fight within two rounds.

Iirc, Aldo's sick TDD has been more versus single legs, no? Where he manages a BJ Penn-like hop on one leg...

This fight comes down to Aldo's TDD vs Mendes double legs.

I think Aldo can weather a few rounds, work some leg kicks to take away Mendes' base, and finish the fight in the championship rounds. Though, he'll have to be very precise and careful with leg kicks if he chooses to utilize them as they will expose him to Mendes' double leg strength.

Also, keep in mind from the Michi Omigawa fight, Mendes was pretty gassed by round 3 and was shooting from a mile away and that sh*t will end up with him sleeping from an Aldo knee if he does it in this fight.

But, if Aldo has another bad weight cut and gasses himself, all bets are off ;p
