I hope Cejudo vs Aldo isn't happening, Not because of the fight in general because Aldo's takedown defence will give Cejudo problem but because of the slipery slope of fighter getting titel shot off loss and it de legitmise the sport

i agree that aldo prolly doesnt deserve a title shot coming off a loss, even if it was a razor close decision. but its not that much different than trying to force a conor/khabib rematch on us after conor takes out a washed up cowboy at welterweight. i think aldo is way the better striker than henry and his takedown defense also poses serious problems. so i think this is a tougher fight for henry than a lot of people think. im a big aldo fan and im still pissed over the way he was treated after the loss to conor. so im hoping he beats henry and gets the belt.

Aldo or Aldont what is the question

Predictions: 1 of 8 Winners, 0 Perfect, 65 Points   |   Tied for 3501st

I instantly picked aldo to win this fight as the other guy has a history of dubious wins "Loses/NCs"
I remain Jose wins by Ko or he must retire his loss column is filling up.

Prediction Comments

Predictions: 6 of 11 Winners, 2 Perfect, 380 Points   |   Tied for 2139th

Cejudo vs. Aldo
Henry Cejudo, SUB, R3
I predict Aldo will win the first few rounds, gas, get put on the ground, and get submitted. Just like the Marlon fight, but with a sub.

Nunes vs. Spencer
Amanda Nunes, TKO, R5
Ew, this co Main is like the corona virus, nobody wants it. I’d be surprised if Felica did anything at all to Nunes, but she has a rock hard chin, so it’ll make it to the 5th round

Prediction Comments

Predictions: 8 of 11 Winners, 1 Perfect, 470 Points   |   Tied for 994th

Cejudo vs. Aldo
José Aldo, TKO, R4
I know Aldo don't really deserves his shot at the belt, but this is an interesting matchup. Moraes was destroying Cejudo's leg in round 1, so imagine what Aldo can do... And he always had a great TD defense. Can't wait.

Werdum vs. Oleinik
Fabrício Werdum, TKO, R2
Very intersting JJB matchup if the fight hits the ground, but I think Werdum will just kickbox Oleinik for an easy comeback win in the UFC.

Rua vs. Nogueira III
Maurício Rua, DEC
Waste of a fight. Shogun won the first 2 fights of this trilogy. Plus, I know both are clearly past their primes, but Shogun is still kinda relevant in the top 10 or 15, with quality wins over Tyson Pedro, Gian Villante and Corey Anderson, having lost just 1 in his last 6... A Quality top 10 gatekeeper fight would've been Rua vs Walker or Cirkunov. No disrespect to Lil Nog, I know he had a nice KO against Sam Alvey TWO YEARS AGO, but honestly at this point he should be retired...

Ivanov vs. Sakai
Augusto Sakai, DEC
This will be terrible heavyweight action with a split controversial decision.

Agreed about aldo, volcan. Undeserved shot? yes. Able to win? definitely. Only thing I disagree with though, is that I don't think Aldo will pepper the legs like he should, he hasn't been a leg kicker in a while. My theory is that his shin is so damaged from kicking **** for 10+ years that he cant risk shin on shin.

Betting on Aldo ain't dumb

Predictions: 8 of 11 Winners, 2 Perfect, 475 Points   |   Tied for 943rd

People are discounting Aldo a little too much for this fight. 

I wouldn't quite call him a favorite for this fight but any lines having him +250 or more are underestimating him. 

People forget, he's got some of the best takedown defense ever and a long time BJJ blackbelt. He's also a better boxer than Henry and he's bigger.

Henry is a beast and one of the best wrestlers with near endless cardio, but I doubt he's going to ragdoll Aldo, and in the striking department i'd definitely give Aldo the advantage, especially if he utilizes his kicks, which for some reason he never does anymore. 

What's everyone's thoughts? Or should I go **** myself?

I agree

Predictions: 1 of 8 Winners, 0 Perfect, 65 Points   |   Tied for 3501st

Unless your names is mac or max Aldo is not an easy fight.
Sadly I just read an article saying hed fight him with only a week to train..
Then repeatedly question if he can make the weight could be bad translating.
That doesnt sound like aldo at all he may have gotten into "Jone's **** pills" :>. "Joe Rogan Quote"
If cejudo can starch aldo I'll be very surprised and then have to take the kobold serious.
