Quick Twitt | Pettis Denies FUEL TV Claims, Not Moving To 145

We ran a report on Tuesday from “UFC Tonight” from Ariel Helwani that sourced the manager of Anthony Pettis stating they are considering a move in division to challenge Jose Aldo for his UFC featherweight title. However, that appears to be false.

    hahaha more bullshit news exposed

  2. andy says:

    Thank god. I was worried we were gonna see another emaciated looking LW at 145 like Kenny Florian…

  3. Funny shit. He’s so close to the belt, why would he just give up to fight Aldo? that would be a very Bad decision.

    • Thom says:

      because aldo is a champion too? and a much better one than any recent LW champ.

      • What im saying is he’s been working so hard to get that LW belt ever since the WEC, when he finally got it, but when wec was becoming a part of the UFC so it basically kinda disappeared, and now the guy he beat for the WEC belt is now holding the UFC belt he’s been working for. He “Knows” he can win it. Plus, Aldo is one tough mother fucker, id wanna claim one belt im close to before trying to take one from Aldo

  4. mean170 says:

    I’m tired of hearing about 155ers going down to fight Aldo. No one wants that fight. Aldo is devastating, and after a loss to Aldo what do you do? Run back to 155 or drop down to 135. There’s a reason that Faber and Cruz are at 135.

  5. Matt says:

    Pettis turned down a fight with Maynard. Pettis will probably go to strikeforce and fight Gil for that belt. Strikeforce will be absorbed by the UFC and the winner will be promised a title shot after the Bendo/Edgar thing gets sorted out. I wouldn’t be shocked to see Frankie win and Bendo get his rematch. Add to this that injuries happen, the UFC lw belt could be stalled with Bendo/Edgar for a long long time.

  6. UFC NEWS says:

    why would he move down, hes killing it at 155 now.

  7. Yogurt slinger says:

    I could of told you that was false info! And everyone on here was in an uproar about it lol. Have Aldo move up and get Gil in the UFC….bs over
