UFC 144: Weigh In

“I think he is going to get it”

The UFC president was short on words when asked during tonight’s post-fight press conference if Anthony Pettis will be next in-line to get the title.

It would appear as if knocking out Joe Lauzon tonight was enough to earn a shot at the UFC’s lightweight title that recently changed hands to Benson Henderson this evening.

Henderson and Pettis have already faced each other in the past. The two lightweights went toe-to-toe for five straight rounds during the last WEC main event in history. During their first bout it was Pettis who proved the better fighter and he took the decision over the UFC’s newly crowned champion.

Will history repeat itself or will Henderson get his redemption?
