Oh Goodness...Miragliotta is the ref.
Kenny throwing kicks while Aldo checks them, to start. Aldo comes forward with a flurry, but missing almost all of the strikes. Both showing respect for the other's striking. Florian attempts a takedown, but after some scrambling, Florian has Aldo against the cage. Florian uses a great trip, but Aldo gets back up. Happens yet again. This has to be exhausting for Aldo, fending off these takedowns.
Kenny is showing great timing, in ducking under strikes for takedown attempts. Florian dominated that round completely. Definitely a surprise, so far. His timing has been superb and while he didn't take Aldo down, Jose has to be getting tired. Especially for someone with already questionable cardio.
Both are doing a little bit of striking, but Kenny Florian has been ducking under Aldo's shots repeatedly. For the most part, they're both bouncing back and forth. As the commentators have mentioned, Aldo is holding back on kicks this round because he doesn't want to get caught by a takedown attempt. They've each hit each other a few times, but nothing significant has happened this round.
A couple of head kick attempts going both ways have been checked. More leg kicks are exchanged, and Florian ends the round with Aldo against the cage. This fight has been moderately one-sided, in my opinion, and I am quite frankly shocked. I expected Florian to be good, but Aldo seems a little scared so far, to me.
Both exchanging, but Aldo has been pegging Florian throughout the round. Kenny needs to circle away from Aldo, as mentioned by Goldberg, or it might just end badly. Aldo gets Florian down into the mount, but Kenny working him into the guard.
He's showing very good hips in defending Aldo's transition attempts. Jose has been moving well, but didn't seem to really do any damage to Florian while he was on top. Once again, however, Florian ends the round holding Aldo against the cage. This was by far Aldo's best round.
I'm seriously surprised this fight has gone this long. Both have touched gloves every round of the fight so far. Aldo is still landing a lot of leg-kicks, and Florian's inner-right thigh is looking very red. Not to mention that his balance has been so good that none of Florian's takedowns are working. He looks tired to me, but he hasn't been on the ground and not in a dominant position. Florian has been holding Aldo against the cage for a couple minutes, but he got out.
After a minute of moving around, Aldo held Florian in the clinch against the cage, but he got out. After a couple shots to the face, Kenny decides he doesn't like that and pushes Aldo against the cage once again. Aldo got out with 20 seconds remaining, caught Florian with a decent shot, and they finished the round in the center of the cage. Aldo's corner men say he's winning three round "at least", but I highly disagree.
Every single round, they touched gloves. Such good sportsmanship, that I felt like I needed to say something about it. Both start the round trying to counterstrike. Once again, Florian has gotten Aldo against the cage. Florian slips, but they both bounce kicks at each other. Aldo got into the mount,but Kenny managed to escape for the most part, forcing Aldo back into a side control/guard position. Kenny needs to get out, because he's losing the round, and knowing how inconsistent judges can be, I think he just might be losing the fight.
Florian got up, but Aldo held him on the cage. After a short time, Miragliotta separates them. Aldo once again gets Florian stuck on the cage., then they switch positions. Both strike it out to the finish, but I'm giving Aldo that round.
Despite how Aldo clearly feels, I'd give it to Florian, 48-47.
The official decision is 49-46 Unanimous Decision, Jose Aldo.
To put it lightly, I completely disagree with that ruling. To me, this looks like yet another case of bad judging. And to say that Aldo won four rounds is absurd to me. On a side note, my mom cried because Florian was crying. Thanks a lot!
