You know what this Ben Henderson would beat Pettis. Also if he didn't then let TJ Grant kick the shit outta him.

Yeah I have to say this disappoints me, I was a fan of his but he is reminding my of a school girl with all his damn drama. I honestly think Tj grant has done more to earn the shot anyway. It's been a minute since pettis beat bendo and I can't get grant skull fucking Maynard out of my mind.

Yeah, this is pretty ridiculous. Pettis needs to make a decision and stick with it.

In the end, though, I don't think Dana will let Pettis take Grant's place.



I have to go with the shitty agree and disagree with you here; I agree Pettis should make up his mind, but I do think Dana will allow it just based on where he was ranked as a LW, and the history the two have, plus it would be a big seller. My main objection is that it reminds me of how they did Johnny Hendricks in the WW division. It was crazy the amount of crap he went through to get a title shot. The whole thing will put the divisions on hold, both the LW (Grant) and the FW. Who is Aldo going to fight now, KZ is cool but not a rightful replacement at all...would have preferred seeing Mendes at this point.

Yikes. Pretty sad that JakeWalters posted about this a few days ago and now we're actually looking towards a future where he is correct.





Makes sense. They gotta sell those tickets and Grant's not doing it. That "meniscus tear" was a more savory reason for Zuffa to reshuffle their cards.
