This could easily be a FOTY striking battle, and we gotta wait this long?

Aldo didn't get injured against Frankie, and Pettis doesn't have to cut much weight.

So why the holdup? This should be happening in early June.

Pettis probably wants to do a mock weight cut and see if he still performs well.

Injuries maybe he gets the call to fill in for the title shot in April, a lot of random factors. Phone Post

I think i'll take Pettis. He only cuts 2 pounds to make 155 so I think 145 will be easy. Phone Post

This. I think the wait has alot to do with this. If we want a war, Pettis has to be comfortable and see how he has to tweek hhis style at that weight. I can wait for MMA awesomeness if its this epic Phone Post

Good point. They may be wanting to save him if Melendez can't go.

I imagine Aldo would like some time with his new baby as well. He's been in camp after camp for a while because of injuries. Phone Post

I think they are gearing up for a stadium show.

 

They will do AS vs. Jones or GSP and Pettis vs. Aldo and just fill the rest of the card.

COWBOY STADIUM AUG. 3RD BOOK IT BITCHES

This fight is so dumb in my opinion. Why take the #1 contender from lw and set up a fight with aldo that's 7 freaken months away??? That's just going to bottle neck the fw division even further.

Feel bad for zombie and llamas and other fw contenders that have to wait around now for probably another year to have their shot. Phone Post

But what's the point if they are both healthy? With TUF holding up LHW and there will surely be injuries in other weight classes...

I'm sure we could have Pettis Aldo lined up for May. Phone Post

Oh I see. Yeah man your right, that does suck. That doesn't mean they can't have really good FW bouts to hold it up, but its a downside as far as title contention goes. Phone Post

7 months may not be a lot now, but when Aldo is close to retirement and the past years of his prime are spent with two fights a year, as a fan, it sucks.

He and the UFC can do what they like, I just want to see fights. And fuck TUF and it taking fighters away as well Phone Post
