Right!? I initially read this thinking that he was suspended for an illegal knee..

People were saying Dana looked mad putting the belt on Pettis, only reason I could see that being true is because it seems like Pettis gets hurt a lot.

So what will happen to the title? Welcome to the LW version of the Dominick Cruz era I guess.

Most fight docs have to give a mandatory suspension but it can be lifted once he is seen and cleared by an orthopedic surgeon.These decisions are made rather quickly right after the match during a post-fight physical

I was happy to see Pettis vs Henderson, because it seemed like that fight was a long time coming. But fuck this aldo Pettis talk for now. Pettis needs to fight TJ Grant. THEN he can fight aldo if he wins. But Grant deserves his title shot now that the benson/pettis drama is over.
