Aldo is probably a more winnable fight for Pettis than Benson right now if you ask me.

yeah bendo would probably steal a round or two with takedowns making it a tougher fight for pettis.. Aldo would stand and trade the entire time and thats his specialty

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

This fight would be so sweet if it actually happens in the near future. Both have amazing tools standing and the best thing for the fans here is that in a fight it will be so hard to predict who will prevail between those two mind blowing champions. In my opinion Pettis's striking is something else and not many fighters on the planet can stand and trade with him. I think this is a good move by Pettis's camp, because that way he won't wait so long for his title shot in the 155 pounds division. Everything can happen after Gil and Bendo's fight, there might be some injuries for the champion or some other issues. A bout between him and Aldo is the best move possible at this time. Good for Pettis, he's tired of the exasperating waiting and he's making things happen, pushing for a title fight, which he deserves for sure!

Poirier would beat Zombie if they fought again.

Makes sense...I guess he's getting frustrated of waiting. The UFC shouldn't have been so quick to do Bendo vs Melendez. Melendez is unknown to UFC fans and Pettis/Bendo would make sense, and has a backstory. Plus everyone has seen the cage kick highlight.

I think with my heart at times, yes. But in this case Zombie is improving too, and would still out grapple Dustin

I think this fight is better for Pettis and for the fans. I'm not saying this is a sure will for Pettis, but I think this fight would occur much more in his comfort zone. I think Benson would just try to wrestle hump Pettis to a decision and he knows that. So he wants to go where the fight is going to be good... I want that too.
