I'd much rather for KZ to get the fight because I'm a fan, and he's earned the shot. KZ has more defensive flaws than Pettis though. Pettis is hard to predict, which gives Aldo problems. KZ is extremely aggressive which could give Aldo problems.

Lamas has power but is too slow to land anything, his wrestling is not good enough to be effect against Aldo.

Cub has speed, and power but he's so wild and sloppy. Aldo murders him

LOL wow. If this does NOT show that Aldo is 100% scared, please feel free to defend this. He gladly fought someone making their FW debut off of two straight losses, yet he's refusing to fight someone making their FW debut off of wins?

Please, what a scared hypocrite. Diaz and Sonnen didn't deserve title shots either, and the champions didn't refuse (not counting Bones/Sonnen 151 that never happened, totally different situation/scenario).

I don't think he's scared, I think his management team may be frustrated at the lack of respect he's getting. He is the FW champ, this would be the third guy to move into his weight class and get an automatic shot at his belt ( k-flo is the exception as he did one fight at fw). I don't think it's a matter of being scared, it's a matter of devaluing the man's title.

Don't get me wrong Pettis vs Aldo would be sick, but what has Pettis done to prove he's a legit fw contender? He has made a case for Benson's title, but not the FW title. There are plenty of guys who could make a case for a FW title shot such as Kawajiri, Curran. Even boring ass clay guida has a strong case for the FW title than Pettis, he does hold a victory over the man and is undefeated as a fw. I'm guessing Jose Aldo is just tried of guys from other weight classes coming into his and getting a shot at his belt without doing anything in the division.

These guys are pro fighters I don't think anybody is ducking anybody or is scared to fight a certain guy. It's a bunch of politics and other stuff that comes into play that prevents good match ups from taking place.

Aldo knows that Pettis is one of the few people who are better standing than he is, backed up by an awesome gas tank. Pettis would honestly wipe for floor with him and damn right Aldo is scared. Scared of losing his title and what comes with it more than scared of taking a beating mind....UFC fighters are rarely truly scared of each other.

He would love to fight KZ or Lamas next

If Pettis is truly that good I think he would have been champ by now. He's flashy I'll give him that, but at the end of the day Jose Aldo beats him. Jose Aldo has an element that a lot of guys don't have he trains with some of the best stand up guys in MMA (Anderson Silva,Machida,etc). Plus we don't know how the cut would affect Pettis, we all thought Frankie would be faster than Aldo also. The only grey area for aldo is his gas tank, vs Pettis he holds an advantage on the feet, much faster, more technical, and has more power.

Well he did beat Henderson....

He really should of had his shot at Edgar instead of the Maynard rematch, he was screwed out of that. Also areas Pettis lacks are not areas Aldo exceeds at, is not that Pettis is "Truly that good" I don't think he is necessarily better than Aldo...Just that Aldo's style and stamina weakness are perfect for Pettis.

The rest is more question marks over Pettis, stuff Aldo does not know like the weight cut....unknown factors are not likely to make Aldo any more confident.

Thing I never understood is why if Pettis hates waiting on a shot is that Aldo fight scheduled for August? Bendo/Melendez will be long over by then....I thought he hated waiting....yet that Aldo fight is a half a year away....makes little sense.

The only reason he isn't champ is because he's been hurt.

I think aldo will win, however I would love to see Henderson vs Pettis 2. Henderson has grown a lot from the first fight, in a rematch I see Henderson taking it easily. Btw Pettis, like Henderson both got their shot at Edgar, only difference is Pettis got dominated by Clay.
