How can this get given 3 stars and be MMA fight of the week, yet McGregor/Aldo gets given four stars and isn’t MMA fight of the week?
because for the mma fight of the week we choose the best bout overall: this means good work on the ground, nice striking exchanges, high pace, back and forth action, etc…and unfortunately we can’t see all these things in the Aldo vs McGregor fight.
