Pettis' manager, Mike Roberts, confirmed that Pettis did indeed turn down the fight, but only because a recent shoulder surgery precluded him from competing at UFC 150. The fighter originally was told he couldn't get in the cage until October, but that timeframe recently was pushed to November.

"I've never suggested 'Cowboy' fight anybody," Roberts on Friday said. "He's definitely not running from 'Cowboy.' Anthony is running for whoever has got the belt, and unfortunately for 'Cowboy,' it's never been him.

"But having said that, if 'Cowboy' wins his fight, and (UFC matchmaker) Joe Silva tells us beating him is going to get us a title shot, Anthony would gladly accept that fight."

According to Cerrone, Pettis was the original opponent he proposed to meet at the Aug. 11 event. He then said he would wait until December to fight Pettis, but Guillard instead took the booking at UFC 150.

Pettis would smash Cerrone. He's better on the ground and much, much better on the feet. I don't know why Cerrone wants this fight. Phone Post

Cerrone better beat Guillard because this is a WEC version of Hendo/Shogun for Pride

Nice of you to grace us with your presence, Little Lord Fauntleroy.

Too bad you're wrong. Styles make fights, and pettis' taekwondo will eat dicks as it always has against muay Thai. Phone Post

Last I checked Pettis had great Muay Thai. I like both guys but Pettis has better standup. I'd argue Pettis has the best standup at 155. Ahead of Diaz, Cerrone, Edgar, Bendo, etc.

Oh snap... You can't get much more told than that.

I think fighters are going to find aspects of TKD to apply to practical MMA though. Same with capoeira actually. There is still so much room for MMA to grow. The showtime kick is "impractical", and it's also one of the greatest MMA highlights of all time.

Georges is a pretty educated fighter, and he learned a lot about throwing kicks from Joe Rogan. He said Rogan throws that kick better than anybody he has ever seen.

GimmeTwoTacos is gaying up the UG tonight.

Cerrone is very good. Pettis is better. I 100% got Showtime in that match up. Idk what your hatred from taekwando stems from, but Pettis has shown that it CAN be effective in the octagon. Ask Bendo, the guy that outsruck Frankie Edgar last time we saw him.

Also, lol at you being a black belt. trolls are getting worse by the day. trying too hard brah

Answer is no.
He's going to be out-struck in his next fight. Donald isn't going to lose his cool this time when somebody knocks his hat off. Also, Benson has left Anthony in the dust, he's improved greatly, and he'll win the rematch if it ever even happens. I don't see Pettis out-striking Gray or Frankie either. Nate is a question mark, it would be a good fight.

I think Pettis will beat Gilbert Melendez easily though.

 I can't wait to see Pettis fight again.  If Cerrone beats Guillard, that's a good fight.

His style is not appealing to most LW fighters even though he is a top contender, but I agree with you on this one for sure Phone Post

Man I love the LW division. Remember when it was shallow?!

Any of the fights mentioned would be good and hard to pick a winner.

Auzzie - Is Diaz really waiting for a title shot?

NAte Diaz vs PEttis should have happened by now....
From what I understand, Pettis just started training again.

Plus, Bendo/Edgar is already next week so Nate did the right thing by waiting. Phone Post

sure it's not appealing and I understand why they want to steer clear of him at all costs but in my opinion you gotta beat maynard to warrant a shot.  all of these guys have lost recently (cerrone, pettis and melvin)   I think they gotta go through maynard instead of fighting each other.

cerrone vs pettis is fun and all, but they gotta prove they can beat a guy like maynard before fighting for the title.  Pettis recently lost to guida, Melvin recently lost to miller/Lauzon, and Cerrone recently lost to Diaz.

one of those guys needs to fight maynard... they cant just fight each other.

lol, you take him at his word that's he's a TKD bb? The troll who's been running it into the ground like it's ballet dancing

Unlike gimme two tacos I actually do have some TKD. It's nothing to be sneezed at, for me it's all about the kicks Phone Post



Well, its not like it is a huge investment in time or training to be a BB in TKD, that could be part of his dislike for it (feeling he got screwed regarding time/money spent to get it) I think.
