Anthony Pettis may not be getting the next crack at the UFC lightweight title, but he’s not going anywhere but on a hunt for the next best challenge at 155lbs.

During UFC Tonight on Fuel TV on Tuesday, it was reported that Pettis was possibly considering a drop to 145lbs and challenging featherweight champion Jose Aldo.

While it was anything but a done deal, the possibility seemed to exist.

Looks like he has some time to kill...maybe he likes fishing? I like this more than dropping to FW, he had much more to lose by dropping.

I think don't think anyone should just get to drop down a weight class and fight for a title soon.

Hendo, Pettis, Edgar.

You need to fight in that division a few times before you get a title shot. Can't just leapfrog people who have been fighting in that division.
