That means Pettis will have to fend off another round of lightweight hopefuls to keep his spot in line. Or he can do what Edgar wouldn't, and shed some skin to give "Junior" the fits in a featherweight title fight. A move his manager tells Ariel Helwani (via UFC Tonight) is currently under consideration.

"I spoke to Anthony's manager just a few hours ago and he told me that he was really disappointed, but he respects the decision. He would consider going down to 145 to fight Aldo. This is definitely something to monitor."

I think it would be a great fight and the only real challenge Aldo has had in a while...

He should definitely fight him. I agree with the others though. Aldo breaks him.

wow, that's a sick ass matchup. not sure if pettis can pull it off, he'd be a clear underdog but props to him if he does it.

I would like to see him and Hominick again that was a good fight that showed Aldo is beatable.and i think Pettis fcks him up.

Why is the best Lw in the world still in Strikeforce,Dana hates the Gracie camp it seems Melendez is one of the most exciting fighters in the sport bar none.
