WTF, just saw Pettis is hurt. WTF! Are they going to wait for Pettis to heal and put him up against Benson instead?

Show is in Milwaukee, Pettis' hometown.  UFC couldn't be any more transparent.   Sorry TJ.

Pettis will become the most hated fighter (amongst other fighters) in the 145 and 155 divisions if this happens. Cuts in line to get a title shot at 145, gets injured, then cuts back in line at 155 to get another title shot when there was already a challenger lined up.

Nah, UG will get a boner over Benson vs. Pettis II.  They don't care about earning title shots.

That's why I said amongst fighters. Fans won't care. But the fighters at 155 and 145 will hate him.

He did, but then opted not to take it by choosing to go down to FW.  "I can't wait for a title shot in August, so I'll take a title shot in August."

Pettis has been getting screwed out of title fights for a while. He deserves a fight for a tile more than Grant and it's not close

I think Lamas is getting screwed more than if TJ was bumped out.

Pettis has been screwed out of 2 title shots already, once by Edgar/Maynard 3-match and then by Gil. Speaking of which, didnt Gil technically "cut in line"? He came from another company, didnt even have a fight in the UFC but got an immediate title shot, pushing Pettis and other contenders back. No one hates him. Pettis did the same thing, just dropped a weight instead of fighting from another company. I dont understand why he would be hated for doing what others have done?

Id rather see Grant vs Josh Thompson anyway.

Ill take pettis vs bendo... but zuffa wouldnt screw grant like that unless he gets injured or they pay him a nice move aside bonus.

Grant vs Josh Thompson in toronto makes way more sense and Pettis vs Bendo in Milwakee again makes way more sense.

No fan hates Pettis. I love Pettis. I was saying that that the FIGHTERS at 155 and 145 will hate him.

Gil was a top 3 LW in the world for like 5 years, and definitely deserved the immediate title shot. And it's not as though he came to the UFC and took the number 1 contender status from another fighter like Pettis would be doing to Grant.

All I was saying is that he did cut in line at FW to get a title shot, and if he gets a title shot at 155 after one was promised to Grant, he'll also have cut in line there. Just stating the facts.
