I have to side with GUYCANADA on this one. I think it will be a great fight and from a fan perspective I want Cerrone to have his hand raised. Time will tell

Cerrone opens up as the slight favorite at -140.

I like both guys... Both are fun fighters to watch. I totally agree that Clay Guida sucks!!! And they need to change the rules about guys who are in top position and not doing much.

His little bro Sergio is a badass as well....

Worst UFC rule is the ground touch/no knees. Ridiculous.

If a guy places his hand on the ground, are you allowed to stomp it? I mean you can stomp feet so why not hands?

Pettis has no one to blame for that loss but himself, but that loss only made him a better fighter, it showed him he wasn't ready back then, brought him back down to earth and it set him for his eventual 2013 UFC Title run when he knocks out the winner of Bendo/Diaz, which I can't lie, part of me hopes it Bendo, just so can Pettis can sleep him this time around.

Lauzon was the first to suffer, sadly, Cowboy has to be next.

I think the rule should be changed to stop that exploit.

I mean you technically could but.. They do have gloves on so im not sure how much it could actually do. Potentially break a finger, but i doubt that would happen more than 1/20 times.. Not to mention if you miss you are pretty much give them your leg

Bendo | Aldo | Cerrone | Vitor | Fedor | Cormier

Well i know you are not allowed to attack the fingers. So if you would do a hand stomp you would have to directly attack the hand which imo would be hard to do.

To top it off you have to be close to the person to do a Hand stomp so it would be nearly impossible to accomplish unless the person let you. If you are close enough to stomp his hand then you are close enough to be taken down.

I think Pettis is going to be too fast for Cerrone. I feel like Cerrone's little leg kick game is going to be in-effective against the more skilled striker in Pettis.

Either way I'm pumped for this fight.
