He has only won his last 4 fights, one being an ehh split decision win over Jeremy Stephens. How long will Pettis' injury put him out for though?
Two things, one he isn't the number one contender, he earned a title shot against Benson Henderson. He needs another win to become the number one contender.
Champion: Benson Henderson
Rafael dos Anjos (+4)
Donald Cerrone (-3)
Pat Healy (-1)
Also Pettis/Aldo isn't a "superfight" it's Aldo fighting for the title. I don't get why people don't want to give Jose Aldo the opportunity to win two titles. His win over Edgar was much more decisive than Henderson's wins that alone should merit him a title shot.
