Aldo absolutely refuses to fight Pettis

Dana said Aldo will fight Pettis or he's not going to like the way this turns out. He's absolutely refusing right now.

Dana said Aldo is refusing to fight Pettis - but he's still planning on that fight happening.
I'm conflicted here. Pettis doesn't deserve the shot at all. Guys like Lamas/Swanson and KZ do. But at the same time, Aldo vs Pettis is BAD ASS fight. Kind of hope the fight goes through, but wouldn't mind if one of the other 3 got the shot first.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Aldo will fight who his employers tell him to fight.

Getting tired of these prima donna champions.

I'm pretty conflicted here as well. Why would Pettis want to fight Aldo as opposed to Henderson or Melendez anyway? If I were Aldo I'd be annoyed too. He's fighting guys that are Lightweights that haven't won a damn fight at Featherweight. It really makes no sense. Lamas deserves the shot in my opinion and has plenty of other contenders in the waiting like KZ, Swanson, and Lentz.

But Aldo really has no right to "refuse" a fight.

Pettis doesn't deserve this fight. But Champions should refuse fights, though undeserved fights should be able to be refused.
Have pettis fight Lamas then Aldo

Chael Sonnen said he'd fight Pettis if nobody else will.

Anyway... quit refusing fights. Dammit.

Dana wouldn't run into these problems if they gave title fights to people who actually did something to get them...

Honestly Aldo/Pettis is getting in the way of Pettis humiliating Bendo again so the fight needs to be scrapped. Pettis needs to embarrass him again.

It's a stupid fight and disrespect to Aldo, the FW contenders and the LW contenders. I also question Pettis' motives for wanting this fight. Dana has cocked up.

What's stupid about it? he fought frankie edgar who came off 2 straight losses at 155 and wanted that fight for ages, he fought kenny florian who was on a 1 fight win streak, and now he has a problem with match ups? he didn't seemed bothered by it when dana said the fight could happen after 156 so what changed?

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.
