Aldo’s Key to Victory
Jose Aldo’s reign of terror may be entering another chapter in 2020. Aldo will have to employ his leg kicks, liver shots and keep Cejudo from grappling. Using his head movement to slip Cejudo’s shots and keep the champ continuously guessing. Back in 2016 Cejudo suffered two back-to-back losses, granted he has improved since then. Aldo’s team will have tape to watch and see where they can capitalize and prove the oddsmakers wrong.
