Pettis to Cerrone: Be ready bro

source: UFC Tonight

That's a question fellow 155-pound title hopeful Anthony Pettis wants answered, after "Cowboy" was "talking a lot of mess" in recent weeks, focusing on the "Showtime" injury that Cerrone claimed was being milked for more than it was worth.

Pettis responds via FUEL TV's "UFC Tonight:"

"Oh it is happening. He is talking too much mess for it not to happen. I'm excited to get in there and scrap with him. I should be ready by early November or late November. Either way by November be ready. So, be ready bro. You've been talking a lot of mess. Be ready. I am coming for that title shot. You're the only guy standing in my way and I'm gonna get it."

I'd put Lauzon v Varner right up there with the 4 you named.

That loss to Diaz seems to have taken Cowboy's game to the next level.

As a fight fan, I'm always excited to see these two guys fight... the fact they're now going to fight each other? My head might explode!Seriously though, the only way this fight is anything less than stellar is if one of them comes in with a "gameplan" and actually sticks to it the whole fight... something both rarely seem to ever do. As for predictions its a tough one. I think Cerrone might have a slight edge in the striking game and wrestling, but Pettis is more explosive and unpredictable, with both having pretty slick submissions off their back.If Cerrone uses his wrestling I think he'll pull out the win, if not I think Pettis might steal the show with some flashy kicks and slick sub attempts. I'm probably more excited for this fight than any other that I can think of.

  Ben can be Tuco, since he lives at the end and still has the gold.

"Be ready bro" is not a question. How can it be answered?
