Anthony Pettis: This is it, my one chance at becoming the UFC lightweight champion. Everything I set out to do when I first started training, it's here. Benson's the guy in my way. I beat Bens Henderson once, I can do it again. I deserve to be at the top of the top.

Fighting Ben Henderson, he's not really one of the guys you have to worry about getting knocked out from. Ben Henderson is superior anywhere to me. I feel like I'm better the champ. I feel like I'm the best 155er in the world, and I don't think he's better than me anywhere, and I can beat him at this own game.

Stand up area, that's my game. I don't see anyone in the world being able to stand with me and take me out of my game.

I want to make things happen that no one's seen before. I want the crowd to be invovled. I'm that guy that jumps off cages and kicks people in the face.

I'm gonna go out there and try to knock this dude out. I'm gonna try to go out there and try to finish this guy. And whether it's just a right hand or a jump off the cage kick, I'm going to try to finish this guy. I don't know if you believe in fate or destiny, but in my hometown, Ben Henderson, we have a lot of history together. This is going to be a good scrap. I'm the best in the world at 155.

Pettis as LW champ would do wonders for the division.  If he can win and hold onto the belt he'd be the biggest star at 155 since BJ Penn if not bigger.

I have a sinking feeling that if Pettis wins the belt you are going to see an interim title soon. The guy has the worst run of injuries. Phone Post 3.0

RockMeAmadeus - Pettis = ONE OF THE BEST LW

Pettis = THE BEST FW
Best featherweight? Lol edgar and Aldo would send him straight back to lightweight while he nurses injuries and cries about the weight cut. He's on of the best at lightweight but I don't think he's gunna beat hendo. Hendo is the new gsp IMO. It's gunna be a great battle no doubt Phone Post 3.0

"Ben Henderson is superior anywhere to me."

I'm guessing the quote should read "isn't." Phone Post 3.0

Hendo is too big for GSP. Ben Henderson vs GSP may be good tho Phone Post 3.0

I don't see Benderson holding the belt like GSP, all his fights have been too close to be compared to GSP.

Anyone in the top 5 or even 10 could beat the belt holder on a good day. Phone Post 3.0
Melendez already beat him IMO. Phone Post 3.0

They were close don't get me wrong I couldn't pick a winner out of the edgar and Melendez fights. I see bendo holding the belt for a couple more years Phone Post 3.0

If only only the UFC had something to show who the best is, like a strap or belt.

Should be a good scrap though. Phone Post 3.0

Pettis is certainly capable of beating Benson but we all know his kryptonite. If he wins the title I don't think he will hold onto it unless the fights are hand picked for him.

Damn exciting fighter to watch though. Phone Post 3.0
