While I'm not opposed to Pettis fighting Aldo, I think it's a bit ridiculous that the Featherweight title will be held up yet again for another Lightweight's bid to take it. The only thing that makes this attempt slightly more acceptable to me, is the fact that unlike Edgar, Pettis is coming in on two convincing victories and a split decision victory. However, these victories came at Lightweight. If he wants to contend at featherweight, then give him some Featherweight contenders from a division that has been stalled long enough.
