UFC 212 - José Aldo vs Max Holloway - Predictions


[#C] José "Scarface" Aldo (26-2) vs [#1] Max "Blessed" Holloway (17-3)

Ten years undefeated. WEC Champion. UFC Champion. Best UFC P4P fighter for a while. Best fighter of the featherweight division of all time. Won Frankie Edgar, Chad Mendes, Ricardo Lamas, Korean Zombie, Florian Kenny, Urijah Faber, Cub Swanson ...

He lost his unbeaten record to Conor McGregor. A quick fight. Only thirteen seconds. In thirteen seconds we saw Jose Aldo do something he had never done before. Run like crazy in the opponent's direction. If you think McGregor "broke" José Aldo, please forget that, review the Brazilian's last fight and tell me how someone "broken" can fight like that. Seven months later, Jose Aldo would contest the belt against Frankie Edgar. Completely focused and without making any mistake, the Brazilian won the fight. It was a perfect performance. He defended all takedown attempts against the division's best wrestler and one of the best in the world.

Max Holloway also lost to Conor McGregor. After this fight, the Hawaiian won his next ten fights. He is only 25 years old and will probably be the big name of the category when Jose Aldo retires. The two even have similar styles. So far he has had no problem in overcoming his opponents. But he got to the belt without facing Frankie Edgar or Chad Mendes. That's a downside. Is he really prepared to face a guy like Jose Aldo? The Brazilian is on another level. We will hardly see Holloway win. In what area could he win? I sincerely do not know. I do not see his victory.

I predict a good fight of exactly 25 minutes. Where we will see José Aldo frustrate any attempt of the American. The Brazilian will probably win every round (maybe lose the score of the last round). I believe that this fight will be more like "José Aldo vs. Frankie Edgar 2" than with "José Aldo vs. Chad Mendes 2".

The odds for José Aldo's victory have floated between (1.60) and (1.70), but someone who really likes Max Holloway bet on him and now we have a beautiful (1.90). You can bet on the Brazilian. Bet now. Because I do not see that odds increasing. This is the best value you will get. Follow me and pick José Aldo victory (1.90).
