“He’s definitely in line (at featherweight), but we’ll see what happens,” White said. “He could do either – he could fight Aldo or he could fight the winner of [Henderson] and T.J. Grant.”

To me, all this says is that they won't publicly take the fight away from TJ Grant. Instead, they'll throw Grant some money to watch from the sidelines and fake an injury to make way for Pettis.

Look, Zuffa wants Pettis on the UFC 164 main event more than Anthony himself probably. They still haven't sold out the lower bowl in Milwaukee, and an appearance from the city's best fighter would turn that around in no time.

I am surprised it must be because Pettis isn't ready by than.
