A potential super fight between lightweight champion Anthony Pettis and featherweight champion Jose Aldo has been discussed at length. It is definitely something fans and the brass at the UFC would love to see, but what hasn't been decided it at what weight it should be. Some believe Pettis should move down, others believe a catchweight in the middle makes sense, and some, like Pettis, believe Aldo should move up:
"Showtime" continued to campaign for a superfight against featherweight kingpin Jose Aldo, and stated that it would be the most exciting fight in either division.
"Now we are both champs and I think the fans want to see this fight. That is probably one of the most exciting fights at 145-155 lb. division. It sucks for the fans cause they want to see it.
It will happen eventually. I fight Melendez, he fights Mendes - we'll finally fight."
Pettis also revealed his continued interest in vying for the lightweight title, which he claims to be more a more prestigious title and competitive division.
"I think the 155lb. belt has more prestige. It is better than the 145lb. belt. There is way more competition at 155. I would say Jose Aldo is the biggest competition in both weight classes so it makes sense for him to move up. There is more money at 155 and we could sell a huge PPV."
