I disagree with Faber, I think Edgar is going to shock the world, but you can't blame him for picking Aldo after that beating he gave him in the WEC.

But it should be one hell of a match up, especially since Aldo has been focusing on his cardio. u guys seen this video?

    I don't know about Aldo's Cardio but this is the first time that Aldo seems scared before the fight. I am leaning toward Edgar to be honest.
    It is not about win or lose, it is about heart. Leave all you have in the Octagon and you are a winner in my book.

    Of course Faber says that, Aldo kicked his ****. That's how it usually works, you favour the guy that beat you.

    Faber would smash Edgar if they ever fought

    It's no surprise that Faber thinks Aldo will win, he's smart

    Everyone is counting out Edgar, it's kind of silly really. The dude has GREAT hands and footwork, lacks the power I know, but there's no denying his boxing which is superior to Aldo's. Aldo has the kicks, explosiveness and the BJJ advantage, but the wrestling,conditioning,boxing goes to Edgar. I couldn't help but notice the size difference next to Aldo, man. He ALWAYS fights guys that are a legit weightclass or 2 above him and still he manages to pull it off. My money is on Edgar this fight. Mixes up boxing and takedowns, wears Aldo out and takes the UD.

    Exactly!
    The lightweights were way bigger than Edgar, but Aldo is the size of a lightweight as well. Edgar AGAIN is the smaller guy, again with a reach disadvantage. And there is plenty of featherweights Aldo's size.

    Edgar is the same size as Urijah Faber, although still - Faber has an inch longer reach.
    Renan Barao is also taller and has a larger reach than Edgar. And those are obviously bantamweights.

    Even at a weightclass lower the whining never stops. Aldo isn't even much bigger than Edgar is he? They look about the same Aldo is just taller.

    Jeez. Stop making excuses for Edgar...it'll be nice to see him face down on the canvas:)

    Shock the world? Edgar is only a slight underdog in the fans poll.

    1. Did you see how many times Edgar almost get KO, but didn't, he recovers real well.
    2. Did you see he took down BJ Penn and Gray Maynard? Both have excellent TDD.
    3. Did you see how good he is at catching kicks in the Benson fights?

    It will be a mistake for Aldo to try and kick, he will get taken down, no doubt. Question is can he get up?
    On feet, Frankie has better boxing and quicker, more durable.

    Aldo will lose! Bet the farm!

    The only time i'll agree with WarWest in my entire life is him saying that Faber would destroy Edgar. Edgar would probably die in that fight.

    Speaks to Edgar's greatness that he was able to ragdoll Benson in a lot of their wrestling exchanges.

    The difference in size between Aldo and Edgar, though, isn't really significant. Frankie could probably throw him across the octagon, since he's so used to duking it out with bigger men.
