Default Re: What does it do for Aldo's ATG standing if he beats Pettis after just beating Edg

If a featherweight beats both of these guys one after another, on top of what he has already done, where does that leave Aldo in the all-time standings in your opinion?
Would mean much more if Pettis took the title from Henderson(50/50 chance) first.

Pettis seems to think that an Aldo that gasses after two rounds, will be a much easier task than Benson Henderson at 155. If Pettis can cut the weight comfortably, he could outstrike the two round Aldo. He has height and reach on Aldo, and a very nasty kicking game. I favor the guy with the height, reach, and five round gas tank in this fight.
