Good for Aldo. Although I love the fight, contenders on a streak shouldn't be able to just drop a division and get an auto title shot. It's a kick in the nads to everyone else at that weight.

While the reaction is a bit sudden and out of the blue - I can understand why Aldo would be frustrated. It's kinda disrespectful to the champ and the division to have him fighting LWs time and time again. And what exactly did Pettis do to earn the shot? And what did Edgar do? The UFC need to stop this rubbish match-making or their champions are going to get frustrated and feel disrespected, and rightfully so.

Dana messed up here, and he needs to be a man about it and not take the "Do as I say or else..." route, because if anyone deserves his respect - it's Aldo.

we've already tried your route before with maia and leites and cote fighting silva and gsp fighting hardy and fitch and it didn't work at all, another thing is that lamas should be fighting KZ for the next title shot nayways so this is perfect timing and pettis destroyed lauzon and cerrone and is a former wec champ so he more than deserves the shot, don't forget they were gonna give it to koch before.

In a completely different division.

If a top contender wants to drop, fine, but what's the issue with getting 1-2 wins there first?

I'd rather see Pettis denied an auto title shot NOW, before every top contender realises they can just get a free title shot in the division below them and skip ahead of the queue.

So by this logic Weidman has earned a WW title-shot? Diaz messed up the pre-fight hype tapings again, it makes perfect sense, perfect timing.

Aldo has fought a former LW with one FW win and a LW coming off two losses. Give the man a FW contender for god's sake. And yes, I'd love to see Aldo fight Pettis - it just doesn't make any damn sense and it's disrespectful to Aldo.

well budhisten weidman is injured so that argument is null and like I said lamas and KZhave to fight to see who the tru number 1 contender is and in the mean time aldo vs pettis and pettis doesn't wanna wait around for god knows how long for a fight with bendo or melendez, and like I said aldo didn't have a problem and requested to fight edgar who lost 2 straight at 155.

Bendo vs. Melendez is in April - Aldo vs. Pettis was scheduled for August.

right but as you know bendo fights about once every 5 months when in title fights so april to september he likely wouldn't fight if he came out healthy, even longer if he wasn't

i'm pretty sure pettis is a great challenger and deserves the shot and damn right he shouldn't have to wait around for the bendo/melendez winner only to fight in september or later. And Lamas doesn't deserve shit unless he can ebat the korean zombie who is the real number 1 contender. Also Lamas was KO'd by assuncao so that's a crush fight if I have ever seen one.


Lamas pisses me off. He shouldn't have had the Hioki win. I want him to fight someone and get destroyed

Aldo can do what ever he want and bear with the consequences. He is a free man. He is right and Dana is wrong. If it were actual champion vs actual champion, I wouldn't mind queues being jumped. Not the case, not fair, not again.
