“Well, it would be advantageous, in his position, with as many wins as he’s had in the UFC that he has a No. 1 contender’s spot in his next fight. I think it’s only logical, I think the fans would want to see it. And I think Joe Rogan said that he and Anthony Pettis, if Pettis is still champ, would be a great fight and I couldn’t disagree.”
