Jose Aldo is returning to the octagon is Calgary as the Brazilian superstar takes on Jeremy Stephens in a fight in the featherweight division. This is set to be a great fight since both fighters are great athletes and very accomplished in this industry. Winning this fight will be important for both fighters since a victory means a lot in regards to title opportunities.
Jeremy Stephens is coming off three straight wins including the main event victory in his last outing. This will give the American tons of confidence as he heads into this fight. At the age of 32, Jeremy Stephens is nearing the part of his career where he will start to wind down. Before the end, Stephens will be desperate to target a belt and beating Jose Aldo will give him a great chance at doing that.

On the other side of the octagon, Jose Aldo will see this as a fight that he is expected to win. The Brazilian lost three of his last 4 fight. Two losses were to Max Holloway while one loss was to Conor McGregor. There is no shame in losing to these athletes but it will be important that Jose Aldo bounces back strongly since it will be strong performances that will put him back in the picture.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to predict that Jose Aldo wins this fight. The Brazilian is a very good fighter and he is a level above Jeremy Stephens. While neither fighter is in good form, Jose Aldo is in better form and his skill should get him the win. As far as betting is concerned, the best wager is to bet on Jose Aldo to win outright so that is the what I am going to suggest.
