"I can be 100 percent ready to fight Benson Henderson in Milwaukee," Pettis claimed in a statement issued to FUEL TV's post-UFC 161 show. "With all due respect to T.J. Grant, Milwaukee is my town, and the fight with Ben is the fight everyone has wanted for years."

Sorry Mr. Pettis. You jumped at the FW shot and it didn't turn out right. That is your fucking bad decision that cost you that fight and you have no one to blame but yourself, TJ earned it and it's already been booked.

Pettis is a beast but NO. Grant just beat the shit out of Maynard. How about Pettis fight Josh Thomson for the next contendor at 155 or he just wait for Aldo/Zombie winner?

I love Pettis, but he had the title shot on a plate. It's his fault that he fucked it up...

Pettis already made that choice, and he's just going to have to live with it. Grant earned that title shot and it would be a travesty to take that away from him. Phone Post

Like I said in the other thread, Pettis' sense of entitlement is just insane. It's one thing to pull a Sonnen and talk your way into a shot, but he just keeps saying "Oh, I want to take this guys fight away from him". He keeps that shit up and someone is going to end up starching him in the locker room.

No. That's why you shouldn't of dropped down to 145 just so you could get a title shot. Pettis must have been spoiled as a kid

I think the #1 contender was to Maynard, and Grant got it by default. Phone Post

Not agreeing with the Pettis title shot; but he wasn't spoiled as a kid. He grew up pretty lower income class and his dad was murdered when he was 14. Phone Post 3.0

Oh that sucks. Just got that impression of him thinking he could drop out of a 145 title fight and then move back up to 155 and push someone out of a title shot he earned so he could get it

By default? He went on a tear beating Dunham and Wiman and then obliterating Maynard in am official top contender fight. He absolutely earned his title shot. Phone Post

He wasn't spoiled as a kid, but certainly has been spoiled by Dana & co. bending to his every whim.
