Following his incredible win over Ben Henderson at WEC 53, Pettis was promised a UFC LW title shot that got brushed under the rug. Now, two years later, an equally impressive win over Cerrone has finally got him back to contendership.

Every time he steps into the cage he does something we've never seen before. He's the most creative guy in MMA, I can't see how anyone couldn't like him...except maybe Leonard Garcia since he beat up his BF.

Lol, What happened to Eddie Alvarez' title shot?

It's no surpirse that Pettis is getting the next shot at the belt.

After Edgar vs Aldo they'll probably announce Lamas as the next challenger also.

It's going to be great. I'm taking Pettis, if Melendez doesn't beat Bendo first.

He's still dealing with the Bellator issue and most likely will be for a while. The judge ruled he can't fight at 159.

I don't think anyone is actually forgetting that, and while I'm about the biggest Showtime fan out there, Bendo's wrestling does worry me too after the Guida fight. BUT, he has trained a LOT of wrestling with Askren, arguably the best MMA wrestler in the world, since the Guida fight. That coupled with the fact that Bendo is a little more interested in proving his worth Guida with his boring fights & "win is all that matters" attitude, has me thinking that the fight will again be a majority standup fight.

It all depends on how it plays out. If its a draw, close or controversial fight then I could see a rematch
