"I don't know who my next opponent is but I'm going for that title shot, that title shot run, so anybody who's a top five guy, I'm ready for them. Joe Lauzon beat Melvin Guillard, I think that would be a great fight for me."

- Anthony Pettis

I expect this fight to be made to be honest. Very interesting fight that has war written all over it.

agreed. These guys match up very well against eachother. Both are good on the ground and with the stand-up. I feel Pettis is a little more diverse with his striking but Lauzon isn't a slouch. FOTN candidate already

I'd give a small edge to Pettis just for his vast arsenal striking

I expect this fight to happen next. I am a believer in Pettis and I think he's capable of beating anybody 155 and under, but I wish he would leave Roufus and go to another camp so he could reach his full potential.
