I'm new here but I just gotta say thank you! I was wondering what joe was watching that whole fight. Aldo was showcasing some sick head movement and dropped Homnick twice. I didn't hear joe comment on much of that. Made it sound as if homnick was lighting him up on the feet when I thought aldo was better(more damaging shots).
I disagree totally. Aldo Did good on the feet the first round, but after that he started getting hit. Aldo hits harder, but Hominick hits more. If it would have stayed on the feet, he would have eventually out pointed him. He turned into a wrestler for a reason.

After the first round Aldo did get tired, and that was certainly his best round but he did win the standup exchanges throughout most of the fight. Aldo and homnick were virtually even in strikes landed on the feet with the only difference being that aldo landed the far more devastating strikes. In no world of boxing would that translate to homnick outpointing him. He was freaking knocked down twice. Aldo turned to a wrestler in order to vary his attack and also seemingly rest since he was clearly gassing. That does not take away from the fact that we clearly saw that aldo was the one doing the damage and having a greater impact on the feet.
Rogans nonsensical commentary doesnt change that.
All thanks goes to starlock.

That's the way I saw it. Homnick landed more strikes after round 1, but after that first round I didn't feel aldo was in danger at all. He was packing the power in his strikes. I only got worried at the end when he gave up that takedown and started getting blasted.
