MILWAUKEE – UFC President Dana White truly likes Andre Pederneiras. But when it comes to UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo, White believes the veteran MMA manager is making his client look scared.

I don't think it's fair to call any fighter scared.

Recently it's sounded like Belforts been scared to fight some middleweights, calling them out but not signing the paper.

Plant the seeds of doubt and despair, Dana.

Hey, maybe Jose has a back injury? Sound familiar? Or can only "fight" in Brasil....Sound familiar again??

Feels like Dana wants the 145 division to even out a little.

I'm glad Dana spoke up and said what he said here.

Aldo vs. Pettis needs to happen. A catchweight would probably be best for both fighters, but either way, it needs to happen.

Do whatever it takes, Dana

Stupid.

If Pettis wants him, he should cut the weight.

Or if weight doesn't matter, than have Pettis fight GSP.

No one should call out lighter fighters.

I`d rather see Josh Thompson or TJ vs Pettis.

Big respect for Pettis if he continues his pursuit of Aldo at 145. If this turns into a "Aldo has to come to 155 blah blah blah," then shame.

On White stirring the pot, if you listen to what Dana says ever, please go play in traffic.

first off, I wonder if Dana will ever grow up. calling people chicken....thats like 3rd grader antics.

2nd, not agreeing that this needs to happen. Pettis was the champ for one fight. Guys like GSP, Silva and Jones had mostly cleaned out their divisions and still didnt fight each other, even for the huge payday.

Now Pettis is the champ with zero title defenses and suddenly has to have a superfight? I dont get that.

The reason is because they know he will lose the belt within a year anyway so they are trying to strike while the iron is hot and make the biggest fight possible at LW/FW (which still wont sell more than 350-400k PPVs anyway). Kind of pointless.
