Anthony Pettis will not be healthy enough to defend his title at UFC on Fox 9, so the UFC has slotted Demetrious Johnson and Joseph Benavidez as the new December 14th main event.

Pettis is cursed by the injury bug. I can see it being a huge factor later on in his career. I hope he has a speedy recovery I hate to see any champion sidelined

Was gonna be such a great free event too

It'll still be great, but damn. I'd rather see Pettis fighting healthy as opposed to injured, though.

Dana is such a lil bitch
Pettis is okay he is still fighting. What a croc

Feel bad for the fans in Vegas once again getting fucked over losing a title main event.

Pettis will probably headline fox Chicago or in march ppv

Too bad, was really looking forward to that one. FOX 9 is still pretty sick though.
I like that Diaz/Maynard is the main for TUF finale as well.
I actually liked the way it worked out better as Johnson/Benavidez definitely should have been on FOX or even a PPV card since they're imo the top 2 flyweights in the UFC right now.

No card should ever be headlined by two guys coming off being stopped brutally.

I Actually like DJ & Joe B headlining the fox card in Sac Town. Team Alpha male is getting a chance to preform on the national stage with Mendes, Faber & Joe B all on the main card. If there's ONE camp that can draw new fans to the sport its team alpha male, those guys are always in great fights.

I also feel like DJ & Joe B deserve this stage since like an above poster points out these are the top 2 in the world, if team alpha male wins out including Joe B then I say hands down camp of the year. The only thing there missing is someone holding gold

I think Johnson vs Benavidez is a better main event for the FOX card. I thought Pettis vs Thomson should be on a pay-per-view anyway.

No need for an interim title fight but without a timeline set for when Pettis will return Grant vs Thomson would be the optimal fight. That is unless Grant is still unable to return

if something were to happen between now and then, you wouldn't support a card headlined by JDS vs Overeem?
