Cowboy is barking at the wrong tree here. Pettis for champion!

It's gonna be bittersweet when Pettis puts him down, on one hand Pettis' reign of dominance continues on the other hand, Cowboy's getting KO'ed. ;/

Love the match up. I'm with the upset of Cerrone winning it. His fundamentals since the Diaz loss have been so much improved. I see him beating everyone except Diaz right now, and even that fight would scare me as a Diaz fan.

Pettis is one the best strikers in all of MMA. Cerrone is a great kickboxer with sound technique but Pettis generally for me can outpoint Cerrone everytime.

Franklin,Gouveia,Maia,Kharitonov,Hunt,Liddell,Pari syan,Hardy,Shlemenko,Machida,Gomi,Bustamante,Evans ,Edgar,Hathaway,Bonnar,Murray,S.Carter,Ludwig,Pett is,K.Gill,Sobral,Mousasi,D.Cruz,Arona,Nogueiras,Co te,Ole Laursen,Kawajiri,Sakuraba & K1 Lebanner!

I think Pettis tries a little too much. To me he is more flashy while Cerrone is slightly more technically sound. I think Pettis might be able to beat him to the punch everytime, but Cerrone is such a solid stand up fighter now that he'd be able to get around Pettis' speed and get some shots off of his own in a complete war of a fight.

I love how Pettis is going to KO Cerrone....who has never been knocked out. Also Between Pettis and Cerrone both only have two KO/ TKO's a piece from WEC or UFC fights. Facts are hard. ;-)

Yes its hard to see a striking stoppage, both guys are too versed in kickboxing to get finished standing. On the ground perhaps we may see a stoppage.
Pettis is still the better striker for me and will outpoint Cerrone in the striking aspect.

reign of dominance?

He is 2-1 in the Ufc, got out-wrestled by Guida, won a split decision against Jeremy Stephens?? and then Ko'd Joe Lauzon (who is as hot and cold as them come)

Besides beating Bendo in the WEC has had he been dominate?? I hope Cerrone uses those awesome leg chops to break him down and then his length for top control..

Ufc Events Attended:

Ufc Fight Night: Davis Vs Nogueira, Ufc 131, Ufc 143, Ufc 148, Ufc on Fox 5, Ufc 156, Ufc on Fox 8
