I feel the difference in this fight will be combos. Pettis is way too comfortable as of late just throwing a single punch or kick with no real follow up. Cerrone on the otherhand has been starting to mix it up better and better. Pettis leaves himself fairly unguarded after throwing a punch or kick as well.

I see a Cerrone decision win based on more blows landed, but Cerrones face to look worse as he shows damage very easily.

this is a true number one contenders fight, i doubt we will see this go to the ground unless someone lands big and follows up for the finish. i think cerrone has a small height and reach advantage and is very technical but still diverse.. pettis relies more on his timing and creativity even though he is also technically sound in his standup game..

Putting in a small bet on Pettis for the KO. He's a quicker version of Cerrone which means he'll get off first.

I like Cerrone's swagger, but he should be careful with Pettis. Pettis, RMAC, Barboza, and Erick Silva are the rising young guns in the UFC.

I'm not sure Cerrone is explosive enough to bang with Pettis for 3 rounds.
