Default Who would you pick out of Aldo vs Pettis at 155?

Dunno if we will get the chance to see the fight ever get made, but who would you be picking out of Aldo and Pettis, if Aldo goes up to 155?

I would like to think moving up to 155 might cure Aldo of his gassing problem in the later rounds.

BTW - 5 Round fight.

Aldo. Those leg kicks! Doesn't really have to worry about the TD either so he can just rain them down on him.

Anthony Pettis TKO3, but a fair chance he gets caught in the middle of some flashy shit.

To be honest, this is a tough choice because in that first minute I see Pettis trying to land hands and Aldo attempting leg kicks.... Whoever gets off first will have to hold that lead, but I believe that Jose Aldo will have trouble dealing with the reach of AP.

I was under the impression Pettis already does a sick weight cut for 155. I mean if he thinks he can do 145 than more power to him. If he can make the cut and preform the same as he usually does I got him winning a really fun close fight.

Pettis looks small for 155 and was absolutely dwarfed by Cerrone, not that it did Cerrone much good.

Surprising picks so far. I know he's on only a two win streak but I just have this feeling Pettis has found something. He's finally getting it right. Aldo is special but I feel he has no business at 155. His gas tank is questionable and at a higher weight he'll be slower. I think Pettis stops him at 155. I certainly hope I'm wrong though, as I'm a big Aldo fan. Just being realistic.

I think Aldo not worrying about the takedown would be the difference, he would unleash hell on Anthony's legs.

Not really sure if that would make the difference. But I think Aldo takes it.

Pettis = Clay Guida's man-bitch.

All joking aside, God only knows who'd win this fight. Aldo just beat one of the best lightweights ever, Pettis just KO'd a guy who'd never been KO'd in something like 54 fights across kickboxing and MMA.

Somebody's going down in style.

Aldo wouldn't have much trouble at all with Pettis at eiher weight.

Pettis wouldn't be faster, and his wrestling is shit. Which would encourage Aldo to go all out standing.
