It's been three years since he's earned his "promised" title shot and while I don't wish to see Grant bumped from his title shot I see no reason why Pettis shouldn't be on his home-town card. Also I don't feel it's right to blame any of the fighters who were willing to drop down to face Aldo (Florian, Edgar, Pettis) as the FW contenders have failed to prove their legitimacy. Three of the last four fighters, Josh Grispi, Mark Hominick, and Manny Gamburyan have a combined UFC record of 2-10.
If he wants a short camp he should have that right especially considering both what he's been through and what he brings to the table.
Let Pettis fight Thompson or Melendez on Ufc 164, if he wins, then you can set-up a title fight in Dec or on the 20th anniversary card in Vegas with GSP....
Either way I can't wait to see TJ elbow the F*** out of Pettis at some point in the near future
