Dana White: We Can Match Any Offer Rampage Gets, Pettis Gets Title Shot | UFC NEWS

“I said before the fight and I’ll say it again after. [Jackson] needs to work for people who can make him happy. I feel like we’ve done everything in our power for Rampage to make him happy. If there’s somebody out there who can treat him better than we have, that’s awesome [but] I do have the right to match.”

    Pettis will be the king of the lightweight divison. Mark my words.

  2. DELA says:

    Controversial decision? I saw a guy moving backwards, getting broken down, busted up.

    • Nuitari X says:

      I agree, I usually think Dana White is on point but this time I don’t think he is. DJ definitively won that fight but JD put up a hell of one. I can’t wait for the rematch if it happens.

  3. TheTude says:

    Bendo has built up his skills and strenth tremendously since the last time. Pettis is awesome but bendo is. Top 5 in the world

  4. Time To Wrestle says:

    Pettis needs to fight Maynard or Miller first IMO. But great let him fight Bendo or Melendez. They will expose him like Guida did. This kid will never be a champion in the UFC.

  5. JustinJitsu says:

    Is there a version of this that isn’t restricted? really want to watch it. (Australia)

  6. matalotz says:

    I was thinking the same thing as Dana. DJ did wear Dotson out and dominate the last 2 rounds and even won the 3rd. That illegal knee should of been a point deduction tho. Dotson won rounds 1 and 2 and with the illegal knee point in the 3rd, the fight should of been a draw. That’s the way it should been scored even tho it seems that DJ owned and beat him down in the last 3 rounds. Good fight anyway.

  7. Swams says:

    Pettis did have to jump off the cage to squeak by Bendo in the first match. Pettis will need something spectacular to get the belt again.

  8. Lashway says:

    Just because you can show of some flashy shit and get lucky and land one don’t mean your prepared to take out the division and reighn. If that
    was the care he would of taken out Guida no problem but he didnt. Not like Bendo did anyways.

  9. confucius says:

    pettis will never beat henderson. lost to guida, split decision jeremy stevens whos never been in title contention, and finally got two solid wins as of late. let him have his shot and get out wrestled and move on.

  10. Bob says:

    Pettis has one of the top 3 triangles in the division, scratch that, top 3 guards in the division. He’ll be just fine against a wrestler. Besides he’s got the best wrestler in MMA at his camp now so he’ll be prepared for anything.

  11. Jake from State Farm says:

    It’s funny how all you guys talk sh*t about Pettit saying he needs to fight miller! Miller just beat louzan almost lost at the end of the fight and Pettit finished him in under 2 f*cking minutes ! Pettis will give Henderson the best fight of anyone in the lightweight title ! Guaranteed

    • Thom says:

      MMA math doesnt work. But I do agree Pettis clearly deserves the next shot seeing as he beat Bendo already. IMO he should be next to fight him and Melendez should fight Maynard first. Not saying Melendez doesn’t deserve an instant title shot but Pettis has waited so long and still is the WEC champ so he should get it first.

    • WTF says:

      Jake, do you really work for state farm? people usually disclose that info online. Anyways Bendo will use his wrestling and rag doll Pettis to a decision, mark my words

  12. Jake from State Farm says:

    Haha no it’s from the state farm commercial. But my name is jake. I think you forgot how good Pettit is off his back! And he’s had 2 years to practice his wresting with duke roufus. He might have expected to steam roll thought guida and expected a stand up war!!!! But guida fought like a damn puss and grinded out a decision win like he tried to so against Maynard when they fought! Pettit will be ready for anything bendo will be able to through on the table! He beat him standin once but he will be ready to fight off his back if he has to!!
