White: Pettis could be the next huge star


In the past year Georges St-Pierre has retired and Anderson was beaten twice, leaving the UFC without two of it's biggest PPV stars. Dana White however is hopefully that Anthony Pettis on the verge of exploding with fans:

White, speaking to the media following Saturday's UFC Fight Night in Cincinnati said that he thinks Pettis, barring any additional injuries, will be the next fighter to "explode" with fight fans.

The UFC boss added, "Pettis is such a badass - unbelievably talented fighter. I love his attitude. I love everything about that kid, and it is truly an honor to watch that kid perform. The running off the cage, the bouncing off the cage and the knee to ‘Cowboy' Cerrone, (he) beats Ben Henderson in the first round when Ben Henderson fought the who's who in that division and they all went to decisions."

RDA waited a round and half before taking Pettis down, which is fairly early on in a five round fight. I picked Pettis, but post fight I can't recall a single moment where RDA was winning every moment of every round.

If Pettis fights like it's showtime, he can still get it back.For a striker like him, he can't just back pedal and counter.

I still think Pettis can beat RDA. And its pure ABC to think Khabib beats Pettis because of RDA. Khabib doesnt close the gap as smoothly as RDA imo and RDA only started shooting tds after a while and well timed/set up. Khabib is the better wrestler of course but is still kinda rough in closing the distance. I think that could get him picked off by Pettis. Im all for seeing Khabib get his shot (and he woulda had he not been injured).

Yeah, Pettis is super lucky he got those Kung Fu guys like Bendo and Gil.
