Yeah he'd probably have to sit out a month longer or so - but that fight makes sense. And if Bendo wins it'll be a big rematch as well. Doesn't it piss Pettis off in the least to see Bendo walking around with that belt? Pettis was basically screwed out of a LW titleshot when the WEC/UFC merger went down and now the last guy he beat (For the belt as well) in WEC is walking around with the UFC title.

I know UFC has been on a rampage lately booking titlefights that make no sense at all - but it seems like Aldo will take a beating for actually calling them out on it.

I do agree though, it's weird that he flat out refuses to take the fight, doesn't seem like Aldo. But I can understand why he would protest it.

So - no matter what happens, we won't see Pettis fight for six to seven months, which is a shame. And the fight with Aldo would be awesome, as would a rematch with Bendo.

So to sum up my feelings on the subject. I'd like to see Pettis take his shot in the division he's earned it in, but both matches are awesome in my book

Aldo probably knows pettis will beat him after what he has shown lately and against bendo, we can't have any risky fights now can we?

See the thing is budhisten Pettis can and wants both belts at the same time so both fights can happen so it makes sense to do it the route he has taken and I think he can win both

So a guy who doesn't want to wait for fights is going to hold up two divisions? Not saying that he will beat either champion, only a fight can tell us the truth - but that is some ass-backwards logic by Pettis right there

Don't look too much into it, the fight will still happen and Aldo will win comfortably.

At 145 and 155. future G.O.A.T lighter weightclass fighter.

not the way he has looked since he got in the ufc, his gas tank isn't great and pettis is much more dangerous than edgar and edgar took some rounds off him. And to budhi who wouldn't wanna have 2 belts at the same time? that would be terrific bj penn is the only other guy who had a chance for it and he failed miserably

At least there was some order before. Blame it on UFC 151. After that it gave the UFC even more carte blanche to make these bouts. Most I don't mind in fact I'd be hella down to see this. Never really thought about how Aldo and management felt and I can definitely see why they're pissed.

1.) Pettis never fought at FW before.
2.) Pettis is extremely dangerous. In fact I think he would win.

So yah if you really think about it, all that hard work Aldo has done his entire career would go down the toilet.

The strange thing is Pettis already has the title shot for 155. I know he wants to test himself too, but it does kinda suck for Aldo to be taking on an opponent who's coming down in weight with 0 fights in the class. It'll be the second time too that he'll have to put his hard earned belt on the line.

Thank God. I'm a fan of Anthony's but he doesn't deserve a title fight in a weight class he hasn't won a fight in. I hope Aldo doesn't budge.

Dana is not Aldo's boss. Aldo is an independent contractor who can be let go of any time, ZUFFA made sure of that. If Aldo is willing to take the consequences there's nothing anyone can do.
