Jose Aldo vs Dominick Cruz...

Fucking interesting if you ask me... I don't know how Aldo would handle the perpetual movement of Cruz... I think think that Aldo would take it.

I think Aldo's striking is definitely good enough to figure out his movement, no offence to faber but i think aldo is smart enough to figure that out. I also think the size difference would be a factor

Cruz only way i see him winning is to grind a decision and tostay moving the whole fight. Cruz did get knocked down three times at 132. I think Aldo has a better killer instinct than Faber.

Its interesting because I was thinking this during 132 and I just knew Aldo would break him down and pick him apart. Especially, if Faber was able to catch Cruz so often like he did.
I'd back Aldo against anyone right now...

Lol, Cruz got knocked down ONCE against Faber in the 4th round. Cruz can take Aldo down for sure, but Aldo will do something that no one does against Cruz for some reason. Kick his legs. Plus the size advantage. Aldo by late TKO, or Cruz by moving A LOT and exploiting the scoring system with TD's. But my money would be on Aldo, I say 75% to 25% in Aldo's favor.

I am putting Aldo as a huge favorite here, hes not as hesitant as Faber, hes got more mass, hes got more force in punches and kicks, he mixes his game up better and id bet that his jits is better. Cruz got a 48-47 decision against Faber in my books and even if it is kind of MMA math I have a hard time going by anything else. Aldo 9 out of 10 times by Aldo smash
