I would prefer the cover be Rounda Rousey lying on the mat with Holm standing over her.

I'm surprised they'd 'risk' putting Aldo on there. I know it doesn't matter much, but he's not as marketable as a few other choices they could make.

I want McGregor, if Aldo wins he won't fight for like a year

I like that they're doing it this way. Aldo has held down that division forever. If he beats McGregor, why not put him on? Gus hadn't accomplished **** except fighting Bones close and he was on there.

Aldo's 'earned' it in the octagon for sure, especially if he beats McGregor. I guess if he does that'll increase his recognition quite a bit.

Yep. Plus he's the PvP best fighter in the world according to the rankings. If he crushes Conor his recognition will skyrocket.

I don't see him crushing Conor though. Conor is gonna win that one easily in 2 rounds.

Most overrated fighter in history. I was so happy to see her get knocked out after she amusingly thought she was even close to the same level as one of the greatest boxers of all time. She did one thing Money never could, lost a fight.
