Michael Chandler picks Jose Aldo to beat Anthony Pettis

Former Bellator lightweight champion Michael Chandler is focused on reclaiming the belt from rating champ Eddie Alvarez when the two meet for a third time later this year on a yet to be announced Bellator Pay Per View event.

Chandler is 100% focused on defeating his nemesis (Alvarez) in their upcoming trilogy bout, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t been following the Zuffa storyline either.

Chandler talked to MMAFighting about the potential Jose Aldo vs. Anthony Pettis lightweight title fight and even predicted the bout’s winner:

“Between the two guys, they’re both really good strikers. I think Aldo just hits harder. I think he’s got a better opportunity to knock people out more than Pettis. I think Pettis has more of that … he’s flashy and he’s good, I think he can hit you from any angle, he mixes it up really well, but Aldo’s strikes are a lot harder than Anthony Pettis’, I think. I pick Aldo in that fight.”

The former Bellator title holder may be onto something, as Aldo’s career TKO/KO finishing ratio is 58%, while “Showtime” boasts a 41% average in that same category respectively.

Do you agree with Michael Chandler’s prediction? Let’s hear it Penn Nation!

    Aldo is a defensive master and possibly has the best leg kicks in the UFC. If Pettis can’t fight fire with fire, he’ll be chopped down as Aldo won’t be cutting so much weight and will still be attacking in the 5th.

    Picking Aldo because he has proved hes on another level than his peers. Pettis has not. Aldo ko in the 3rd. Pettis will push the fight and the will prove to be his downfall.
