 In his immediate future Anthony Pettis will have a world title fight with featherweight champion Jose Aldo. Pettis however has already stated that he will return to the lightweight division and it seems he would entertain a bout with Nate Diaz who recently called him out in an interview:

"I heard his interview and it just makes me laugh. I mean, the guy just got head kick knocked out by a pretty good striker, but for him to call me out it's funny to me because my striking is one of the best in the lightweight division.

I think he's trying to keep his name relevant and trying to stay in the mix, but I mean after losing like that it's - there's not much more you can do in the lightweight division. I think he's going to be moving back to welterweight and again, the comments are funny to me and if he does want to fight I'll take an easy payday."

I was about to laugh when I thought he was talking about Nick.

Nate isn't the strongest takedown guy in the world and Pettis is far superior standing. Have to agree with Pettis on this one, although I was surprised when Nate had no trouble taking down Miller.

Pettis via shellacking. I've doubted him too many times before, I'm a believer now.

That cockiness is what's gonna be his downfall if they fight, because he will start taunting Diaz and find himself in a triangle choke. Phone Post 3.0

I love this kid, he is beaming with confidence, and keeps getting better every time he gets in the octagon. One of the most exciting fighters I have seen in a long while.

CRMartin11 - I predict Nate getting headkicked again. Pettis has the best kicks in the lightweight division. I'm a huge Diaz fan, but I still like to realistic. Pettis by KO via superior striking.


Anyone have a link to Diaz interview where he calls out Pettis ? Can't find.

Crazy fight! At this point in there careers I would choose Pettis but if Nate can push him back with his boxing I can see him taking it too.

Future matchup please! Phone Post
