I agree he would likely beat Gil but I don't think he could get in there with a guy like Bendo or Gray Maynard yet. Pettis? Really not sure what people see there that is so special. His decision with Jeremy Stephens? Chandler would run through Pettis just like Bendo will.
He's already beat the UFC Champ in decisive fashion, I don't think Ben is that much better since because I believe he lost to Edgar twice but I believe Pettis has sharpened up his wrestling and I think he'd win a rematch even more decisively. I also think he's gonna knock out Cerrone.
