The results of the fight, however, are easy to find and let’s get right into the Aldo vs Faber fight.
Right from the beginning, Aldo (only 23 years old) had the advantage over Faber who is obviously a great fighter. But the speed, tenacity, and powerful kicks of Aldo ended up being too much for Faber to handle after a long, 5 round battle in the cage.
From MMAMania.com, here’s a great recap of the Aldo vs Faber fight:
Unfortunately, Aldo, and his brutal leg kicks, were just too much for Faber to handle.
Aldo chipped away at Faber’s front leg with vicious precision for three straight rounds, hobbling the former champion and sapping him of his explosive mobility. In fact, Faber’s corner man carried him to the corner at the end of the third round because Faber was so injured.
It was a calculated and patient dissection from the champion, chopping Faber down from the bottom up and then beating him up from the top down.
Finally, in the fourth round, Faber had no other choice but to pull guard and hope to somehow pull off a come-from-behind victory from his back. All that got him, however, was in the wrong side of a mounted crucifix position. Faber was able to hang on to the fifth in final round, basically, on sheer guts alone.
It was that close to being stopped.
The fifth round was a mere footnote in an otherwise lopsided fight. Aldo coasted to a dominant unanimous decision win over a very good and talented Faber. Aldo is so good that in the end he didn’t look remotely tired or even touched for that matter.
