Who is MOST likely to win, Belfort or Edgar?

I take nothing away from Vitor, he's a legendary fighter with a career anyone would be proud of. But at this point, I have seen absolutely nothing from Jon Jones that leads me to believe a striker has more than a (pardon the pun) puncher's chance. Bones has incredible reach advantage, and has shown he is perfectly capable of neutralizing speed - which as much as I respect Belfort, he has lost a step in recent years. He is no longer lightning fast. What Belfort has going for him is a lot of experience, but that's about it. Jones is a far superior grappler, could easily keep a good distance, and has proven he can take a solid hit. Vitor's best chance is to get inside, unleash a flurry, and hope that he can land one or two big power shots before Jones takes him to the ground.

 

Edgar on the other hand - I'm not even entirely sure I see the Aldo fight as lopsided as most seem to. I agree Jose is the odds on favorite to win, but I could see Frankie surviving through the early rounds. And the one thing Edgar has going for him is that he is scrappy fighter with a seemingly unlimited gas tank. Jose's previous strategy has usually been to quickly wear down his opponent and ride it out or pick and chose his moments for the kill. I don't think he is going to be able to do that to Frankie. If Edgar can watch out for those leg kicks (easier said than done I realize) he stands as good a chance against him as anyone I've yet see face the Champ.

I see it like this also. Aldo might be the more powerful striker, but weve seen Frankie take some shots, if Aldo doesnt finish him quick, Edgar could easily outwork him in round 3,4 and 5, possibly tko him before its done. Think Hominick, but I personally think, better. He just has to watch the leg kicks.

Edgar definitely. Edgar will be fighting at a weight where their size is equal.

Belfort is gonna look terribly small compared to Jones.

 

I don't see Belfort winning anyways, not just on size solely, but style wise it's bad. Edgar has a decent chance at winning. I'm pulling for Edgar. Oh and Aldo won't finish Edgar. Quote me *****es. Won't happen. If Aldo wins it will be a decision. Guarantee it.

Belfort.

 

Edgard really doesnt the right style to beat Aldo. Not mentioning the Edgard might be feeling lil weaker sue to weigh drop. Then, you would see Edgard little bit slower than usual which is Edgards more important weapon at LW.

 

Calling Aldo kicking Edgards legs for a while, slowing him down and going for the kill at round 3 our 4.
