"I'm tired of waiting, man," Pettis admitted on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour. "I'm just tired of getting passed up. Who knows what happens in the lightweight fight. Who knows what injuries are going to occur and how long that's going to take.

"I was in the same position twice. I was there, I was the next guy in line, and it all depends on who the UFC wants to see fight. That's what it's all about. I think it's who sell the tickets, who can sell the pay-per-views, and who do the fans want to see fight."

"I want to fight for a belt, man. That's the intriguing part for me," Pettis explained. "It's another belt, and I don't think the weight cut would impossible. I think it's something I could pretty easily do.

"I only cut like two pounds to make 155. I have a clean diet and I barely cut any weight when it's time to get down to '55. I mean, if my teammate Erik Koch can do it, I'm pretty sure I could."

"Right now it's so fresh and brand new, that I'm just trying to clear two paths to get to both of these belts," explained Pettis. "I mean, they say, ‘You can fight Jose Aldo in three months, and then you get the winner of Henderson-Gilbert,' then I'm signing the contract today.

"That's up to the UFC. I'm not going to make any decisions or close any doors until they decide what they want to see. I put my opinion out there, I'm up for either one, and I guess it's just what would make sense for you guys now."

They're not going to do that. Either you fight Aldo or you wait for the winner of Benson/Gil.

if he fights and losses to Aldo he would probobly lose the Lightweight title shot But hes willing to take that risk.If he wins he goes for both belts Sounds fair to me

He's gotta go for LW first- if he went to featherweight and lost, there's no way he gets an immediate title shot at a heavier weight class.

He would have to beat Aldo twice then probably have to fight Faber after he gets another shot at the Bantamweight belt. Phone Post

Quoting you really doesn't make sense. Phone Post

Agreed. If he beats Aldo, a fight with Bendo would be huge... especially given their history. But, if he loses, he loses his shit at Bendo next. Phone Post

Once again, they won't do that. If they do, it'll be later down the road after Pettis has defended his own belt.

The UFC isn't going to risk Pettis dethroning the champ at 145, only for him to become champion at 155 right after. It leaves Featherweight in a "WTF do we do now?" situation.

Aldo has earned that right first, he and Pettis should fight for the 155lbs title (if Pettis beats Bendo).
