I thought after Nate's victory that for sure Pettis vs Diaz winner gets the title shot. Then I hear Dana is so impressed with nate's destruction of jimmy. As far as what WILL happen... I have no idea, but right now Diaz vs Pettis makes the most sense.
dude honestly pettis hasnt earned shit, he lost to guida, barely beat jeremy stephens and had a nice ko his last fight vs joe. joes a good fighter but he's definitely not at the top of the division and beating him doesnt warrant a title shot imo. he needs to beat a top guy like diaz just did to earn a shot at the belt
Both cerrone and miller were 1 fight away from a shot and Nate gave them both the beating of their careers. Pettis looked like shit against guida, wrestled a win over mid tier Stephens, and got a flash ko at the beginning of the fight against lauzon which is his only impressive UFC win
Pettis beat Henderson and that should still hold a lot of weight, even if it was in the WEC. That being said Diaz has lit up Gomi, Cerrone and Miller in succession so Diaz is definitely first in line. If Pettis had dispatched Stephens like he did Lauzon maybe I'd be singin a different tune.
