Do people really think that Pettis is a better striker than Aldo?

Pettis is diverse, quick and unpredictable, but he has some major defensive flaws.

Pettis, the same guy that was getting tagged repeatedly in the face by world class K-1 kickboxer Shane Roller? The same Pettis only a few fights ago who wanted NOTHING to do with Jeremy Stephens in the striking department? lol

I think it's funny how he's very clearly ducking wrestlers as well. I don't think Pettis wants any thing to do with the winner of Melendez/Bendo. Both powerhouse wrestlers who could give him major problems in the wrestling department. Pettis hasn't done squat to prove that he can hang with the upper echelon grinding wrestlers since the Guida fight.

Aldo is technically a much better striker than Pettis with much better defensive capabilities. He's also probably the faster of the two. Jose has every right to complain, Pettis hasn't earned shit at FW.

Also vs KZ and Pettis vs the winner of Bendo/Meldenz is what I want to see and what makes most sense to me. I'd love to see a Bendo/Pettis rematch and I'd dying to see The Zombie fight for gold. If Pettis doesn't want to wait around for the winner of Gil/Bendo, then take another bloody fight at 155.

It's a delicate subject. If the rules now are made by the minute, that should be clarified to all competitors. No expectations = No worries.
Ppl are so fast on calling one of the most decorated champions scared or a cry baby simply because the fight would be awesome. Yes, it would, maybe it will, but what is happening to UFC, weight divisions, queues? I understand fighters should do what the bosses say while employees, but they do have the right to express their frustration when crazy decisions are made out of the blue.
What about other fighters waiting for Aldo? Screw them for the business, ok, but at least they get a compensation for having to wait more, no? May be a small share of the PPV they were supose to be starring? Consolation prize...

Aldo will fight whoever UFC tells him in the end, IMO, but let the champion protest, damn it.

I guess Aldo changed his mind when Dana basically told him to fight or else loose the title. Either way I'm glad this is happening and he can either prove Pettis has no business at featherweight or not. At this point that's all he can really do.

If Aldo would lose his title for this, Jones should lose as well, specially when his refusing to fight Sonnen caused a whole event to be erased from the map.

Seems like they worked it out.

I'd still prefer Bendo vs. Pettis II though

But this fight is bound to be fireworks, earned titleshot or not

EDIT: It also seems that with a win over Pettis Aldo will move up and fight the LW champ.

You can't compare the two situations. Not saying I agreed with Bones not taking the fight, but there's a difference between not wanting to put your belt on the line with like 10 days notice, and not wanting to put your title on the line with like 4 months notice because someone doesn't "deserve" it. Bones knows Sonnen doesn't deserve a shot but is doing it anyway.

Not to mention, Bones is a much bigger star than Aldo. Who the hell is Aldo to say someone shouldn't get a title shot?

Get your information straight, man. Jones knew his title would be on the line longer than 10 days. Where did you get that from?

So the big star status is the free pass to speak up while less shiny stars should shut up? What follows this so fair logic? New comers will have to scrub the cage floor after they fight?

To be fair Jones knew for 3-4 months that he would be fighting on that date and defending his belt. And that is what he should have done. He didnt know he would be fighting a MW who hasnt been training but hey you would think Jones is the one with the advantage in that scenario...

Dude there's a huge difference between refusing a fight months in advance and refusing a fight on a week's notice. With that particular example Jones wasn't obligated to accept a fight when he'd been training for months for another opponent and only had a week to prepare. In this example however, Aldo had no excuse to refuse a fight months in advance with ample time to prepare.
