T.J. Grant didn't think too highly of Anthony Pettis trying to steal his UFC 164 title shot against Ben Henderson, calling Pettis' actions "low class" and "dirty."

I agree with TJ. I think it was very low class to try an steal a title shot from a guy who clearly earned it the old fashion way with his fists not his lips

DW didn't shoot the idea of the fight down, he just knew there wasnot enough time to pull it off or he would have. I think Pettis is the future at 145 or 155, his standup may be too much for the fw or lw champ these days.

this paves the way for a Pettis - Grant matchup down the road, which should be good

Probably best to actually read the full quote in context rather than take the headline as it sounds.

Shoddy journalism.

I honestly think Maynard is just going through a rough patch in his career. Benson should win.

I agree

Pettis passed on lightweight title
Went for aldo.

You had your shot. Don't go stealing another guys spot light.

You will have the winner. Wait on the sideline
