He may have to move up to 170, especially if this new weight cutting protocol is enacted this year. I'd still love to see Tony vs Khabib, although Aldo fighting for #1 contender at 155 might be even more intriguing.

I don't think that the weight cutting protocol will be wide spread anytime soon. They will let CA test it out for a bit and see how it works.

I want to see Aldo remind us of his greatness but I think Holloway is really hungry for the title & will get the win, totally different fight to the Edgar fight.

It is, Holloway is a way better striker with a long reach.

 

I also think Aldo is hungry too, believe it or not. I feel like Conor lit a fire under his azz, and he won't rest until he gets that rematch.

Another reason why Aldo should go to lightweight, Conor isn't going to return to fw so if he wants to get a win over him he better get there before Conor retires.

Tough fight but I don't think Holloway beat a good version of Pettis at all but I do think Aldo beats everybody at 145lb not named Conor or Ortega.

Aldo tears him apart with leg kicks until max falls down in the 3rd round cannot get back up.

He doesn't throw many leg kicks anymore. He's broken his foot to many times, I don't think that'll be too much of a factor in this fight

Not utilizing his best distance weapon against a long distance fighter would
be bad.

Sure would. But what will he do if he breaks his foot during the fight.. that seems like it'd be worse than using his hands which are still nearly as deadly

I hope Aldo wins and moves up to fights the ghost of Conor McGregor after Floyd is done with him

Doesn't matter, Edgar is gonna take the belt from whoever wins anyway.

Both fighters will probably try to throw the fight so they don't have to get a Freddy beat down.

Aldo lost to Edgar twice? Yeah he will defo throw fight to not have to get beaten by Edgar again...
