he is aldo's boss because he dictates his contract thus making him the boss and if he refuses he is fired, aldo requested to fight frankie edgar because he knew it was a favourable match up, pettis isn't so it's on;y natural his team tells aldo that he won't fight him because the team doesn't like it.

Probably Ed "Idiot" Soares' bright idea trying to get Aldo some Anderson money.

Why do we even have separate divisions if they are going to keep doing this?

Would I like to see these two fight? Yes I would but I'd also like to see the guys at FW who have earned shots get a chance. Half of his defenses in the UFC have been against LWs dropping down. At least Frankie was a UFC champion who defended his belt against top competition and was the uncrowned LW champion. That was close to a super fight; Pettis hasn't earned those kinds of accolades yet.

This is not a good look for Pettis imho. He should go back to being the "I will fight whoever the UFC puts in front of me" guy. It might be common but it is something that is a respected trait and a much better business decision if you care what the guys who run the biggest MMA company in the world think about you.

he was the wec champion has beaten the current champion, your right lets give him lamas and then cub swanson and then mendes and then koch and then maybe dennis siver let's just do that. And while we're at it let's give gsp dan hardy again and then thiago alves and then mike pierce and then nate marquardt i'm sure as long as there all earned shots everyone will be happy instead seeing a competitive and interesting fight. I hear this lamas kid has better cardio and striking and wrestling than aldo right?

Barely beat him and then lost to Clay Guida and then beat 3 middling LWs. Lamas, KZ, and Cub have been winning fights at FW one of them should get the shot. The difference in speed between FW and LW is huge we don't even know that Pettis could hang with Aldo; Edgar is one of if not the fastest LWs and Aldo was faster.

that doesn't matter, pettis doesn't get hit as frequently as edgar and he has a way bigger arsenal of attacks

Pettis isn't fighting the level of guys Edgar has been fighting. Bendo out struck Pettis for most of their fight. I love Cowboy but he is a ******* statue in there and Lauzon is a schizo in the cage he is either doing something amazing or getting demolished.

Edgar hasn't fought a guy on their level since 2009. You can act like him not getting touched up means something when he is in there with Penn, Maynard, Bendo, and Aldo every ******* fight.

I am okay with Pettis fighting Aldo only if when Pettis loses, he goes to the middle of the pack at LW.

Bendo didn't outstrike him at all your insane, I thought the showtime kick put a stamp on that point for the frosting on the cake but apparently not with you, bendo didn't land anything significant on him standing the whole fight. Do you really think ricardo lamas and cub swanson will even come close to making aldo say oh there's a fight on is there?
