Unless there is a superfight between PEttis and Aldo, the next fight for PEttis should be Benson. Without a doubt.
This seriously needs to stop. You lose the title, you get back in line. I love me some Frankie and he's LW and FW champ (make of that what you will) but goddamm, he's caused some problems lol.
Grant's the number 1 contender but I wanna see Aldo Pettis.

He has only won his last 4 fights, one being an ehh split decision win over Jeremy Stephens. How long will Pettis' injury put him out for though?
Two things, one he isn't the number one contender, he earned a title shot against Benson Henderson. He needs another win to become the number one contender.

Champion: Benson Henderson

Gilbert Melendez
Anthony Pettis
TJ Grant
Josh Thomson
Gray Maynard
Rafael dos Anjos (+4)
Nate Diaz
Jim Miller
Donald Cerrone (-3)
Pat Healy (-1)


Also Pettis/Aldo isn't a "superfight" it's Aldo fighting for the title. I don't get why people don't want to give Jose Aldo the opportunity to win two titles. His win over Edgar was much more decisive than Henderson's wins that alone should merit him a title shot.

Your logic is flawed, Pettis just beat Bendo for the second time, this time first round submission. Clear cut victory, why the hell would he get an instant rematch when there are several others more deserving waiting in line? Ridiculous.

Well I consider the guy who earned his title shot the number one contender, but I guess that is open for interpretation. Gil is coming off of a loss, and whether it was a close decision or not, I wouldn't consider him ahead of Grant until he gets that win over Sanchez, and even then, neither would be ahead of the other. It's not set in stone yet. Grant is the number one contender in my eyes at 155. Agree to disagree brah.

I actually read this thread thinking Pettis would go down in weight, maybe a dyslexic moment. The only reason I'd even want to see Aldo go straight for the lightweight title ahead of everyone else at the moment is because of the great chance that he won't fade in the later rounds like he has been at 145. We should look at injury time lines. I can see Pettis being a frustrating champion.

Who is more deserving than Ben?

Don't talk to me about logic, when you know not the first thing about it.

Exactly, it's not like the fight was controversial. Pettis forced Benson to tap and give up because he popped his arm with a beautifully executed submission. Benson needs to get back in line and earn a rematch down the road because there are also other fighters more deserving of getting the next shot at the new champ at this point.

Who is more deserving? TJ Grant. Or really anyone who didn't lose their title in less than a round by getting subbed by a striker after coming out in a gi.

Apparently I am logical as most seem to feel the way I do, and nobody seems to think how you think.

Wait a minute....sucrets....is that you Ben Henderson?

Logic is not popularity. In fact claiming to be logical because most think like you is a logical fallacy known as argumentum ad populum.

Like I said, don't talk to me about logic when you don't know the first thing about it.


TJ Grant? That's your answer? The rest of your claim makes zero sense. Just because someone loses early that doesn't mean shit. Also Pettis' ground game is amazing so I don't know what you're trying to get at with the striker comment...

The way I see it, barring Pettis, Ben is the best fighter in the division and since he's been defending successfully his title up until Pettis, he is deserving of at least an attempt to reclaim it. If he loses that, then by all means go to the next guy. But let's not talk about Ben as if he's some average dude that simply happened to have gotten the belt by chance or something.

Apparently neither do you. When has any fighter lost his title in the first round via domination and received an instant rematch since Arlovski?

When did I talk about Bendo as if he were average? I said he doesn't deserve an instant rematch, there are rankings for a reason. If it was a close decision or a controversial stoppage, then I would be fine with a rematch. Bendo is 0-2 against Pettis, and had several close decision title defenses. He isn't Anderson Silva.
