Call me crazy, but I think Jose Aldo is the most difficult fighter to game plan against in the UFC.
He can either overwhelm you with powerful strikes or keep his distance and pick you apart, he has amazing takedown defense, and, of course, he has a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
Many people compare "Scarface" to middleweight champion Anderson Silva because of these skills, but the fact of the matter is Aldo's takedown defense is better than Silva's, and that makes him an even harder foe to handle.
As I mentioned in the first slide, however, nobody is unbeatable, and Aldo is no exception. Yes, his striking is phenomenal, but we have seen him struggle to find a finish and a dominating groove in title defenses against Urijah Faber, Mark Hominick and Kenny Florian.
In these bouts, Aldo was impressive and clearly the victor, but he did not exude the overwhelming dominance we have seen him display on other occasions.
They key to victory against the 145-pound champ is to avoid his heavy shots and force him into a clinch game. If there was a featherweight Randy Couture, he would fare well against Aldo. The fighter who pushes Aldo against the cage, utilizes dirty boxing and drags him to the ground will be the man who defeats him.
Frankie Edgar might be the man for the job, and with his unrelenting will and warrior's heart, I see him as the biggest threat to Aldo's belt.
