Hmm... two guys that should be fighting at a higher weight class. Why don't they just have Aldo move up? that way neither has to go through a brutal weight cut.

No idea.  Don't really care, though.  Should be an awesome fight.

Maybe. Aldo looked pretty boring against Edgar. If Petis manages to not get injured before the fight, it should be a good fight.

If Pettis is healthy and the cut isn't too bad I imagine he'll bring some excitement out of Aldo.  Either that or it'll end pretty quick.

I get the feeling that the cut is going to take it out of both. I watched a video with Aldo. They asked him about the weight cut and he said it was rough. I'm not sure, but I don't think Pettis has ever fought at 145 lbs. And going down a eight class and taking on Aldo right away isn't going to be the best thing for him. I think that's something that affected Edgar. He hadn't fought at that weight before. He should have had a tune up fight at that weight before going up against Aldo. That way he could have adjusted.
Hopefully Pettis won't have that problem. I think he should hire the guy that helped Sonnen cut weight for the second Silva fight. Sonnen cut around 20-30 lbs for the weigh-ins and gained it back in time for the fight. If Pettis can do that, he would be in a great position to make it an exciting fight, and maybe take the belt with an off-the-fence kick. 

The interview with Aldo also had some interesting things in it, besides the weight cut part. Aldo was asked about fighting Pettis and he said he didn't think that Pettis deserved the shot and that there were other people higher ranked than Pettis. I'm not sure who would be higher ranked than Pettis at that weight. It sounded more like Aldo was a bit scared of fighting Pettis, who is much lasger than Edgar, and has crazy fighting skills.
They also asked Aldo about moving up to 155 anf fighting Henderson, and he sid he would do it if the UFC brass told him to, but he would beed a tune up fight before. Makes sense, but makes it seem as if he was a bit intimidated by taking on Henderson. That would definitely be an interesting fight. Both have crazy leg kicks, but Henderson has much more powerful legs. I think out of the two, Henderson would be able to take more kicks. They can both dish out hard kicks, but in the end, Aldo may end up limping like Diaz did.

The jump makes a lot of sense for Pettis.  He had the next shot at 155 but had to wait.  He didn't want to and that makes sense.  And that's why he's qualified for the shot whether Aldo likes it or not.  Pettis is so strong even at 55 that I can see Aldo being a bit concerned.  If he cuts right he'll be a problem at 45.  dood has some sick power, speed and crazy ability.

Yeah, it makes sense for Pettis to drop down to get a shot at a belt. Still, even if he wins he will eventually end up moving back up to 155. Besides, I think it would be more interesting, and generate more money, to see a Pettis VS Henderson rematch. Pettis being the last guy to beat Henderson, and showing off that awesome off the fence face kick, would be much more entertaining than seeing Pettis VS Aldo.

And yeah, Aldo should be afraid. Pettis has ridiculous speed, stamina, power, and fighting skills. Really, who else is there at 145 for Aldo to fight?

I bet Bendo is happy Pettis decided not to wait.  ;)  The timing may work out well enough for Pettis to have both fights.  It'd be pretty sweet to see him try to hold two belts at once.  And he could do it, too.

He probably could. The guy is talented as all hell.

Did you see the 156 post-press conference? Aldo said his toughest opponent was Faber. Aldo wrecked Faber. They have picks and videos of Faber after the fight with Aldo where Faber is using crutches to hoble a few feet. Hell, Edgar did way better against Aldo than Faber ever did. 

So, I was reading some article about how it isn't enough to just be the guy winning all your fight fights to be given a title shot at the champ. You also have to sell yourself, like Sonnen has done. Apperantly there is some guy named Lamas at 145 who is undefeated and is supposed to be the guy who was supposed to fight Aldo next, but as Sonnen mentioned in the article, I only just heard the guy's name.

Yep, and exciting.  Does some crazy shiz.

Nah, didn't see it.  If Faber was tough to Aldo what the hell is he gonna think of Pettis?

It's sad that it's becoming that way but it is.  Money, brah.  Gotta draw to get the fights.  At least with Pettis it's not so hard to swallow.  He's really, really good and already in the top contender spot at 155.  Sonnen, otoh, just likes to talk a lot.

I don't think Aldo is going to be thinking straight after the Pettis fight. He may not remember his name, much less who he fought.

As for Sonnen, yeah he talks his way into fights, but you know you still want to watch him fight and get mauled.

Oh yeah, Sonnen is great to watch.  He's also not terrible so that helps.  But he's not even in the same league as Jones or an uninjured Silva.  Pettis, though, is at least as good as Aldo.

True, but you never know. Sonnen seems pretty Damn big at 205. And considering he isn't afraid of rushing in face first, he may give Jones a bit of a hassle. It should be good. I think it will better than originally thought.

I dunno.  Sonnen may be big but Jones is absolutely huge at 205.  If Sonnen pressures Jones, though, he may do ok.  And it does seem like Jones is starting to get into that GSP mode of doing just enough.

Oh, I didn't say Sonnen had a chance. I just said it would be better than expected. Jones may deliver one if his outstanding double knees, or display some if his old striking skills.
As for Jones going the GSP route, who hasn't he taken out besides Evans?

True.  I just think he's fighting more cautiously.  He's just better at also trying to win than GSP and Evans.
