It's just frustrating that the guy can't stay healthy. When he fights he shows amazing ability but then he's gone for the year. He's like the Derrick Rose of mma.

I'm not a Pettis hater but I made a gif to help them.

That's a compelling counter.

I do, and explained why you should.

I know about that, and can't tell if it was a legit knockdown, or a slip ala which happened in the other direction a couple times which I acknowledge in the 1st Bendo fight. It's not a real knockdown every time the other guy throws a punch and it kinda hits you. That was a light punch by Bart. I don't know if it was a real knockdown, and neither do you. I'd be interested in what Pettis has to say about it. Only he knows. A good question for next AMA.

Would have to disagree. Amongst all champs, I think Pettis is by far the weakest. He lost to Clay Guida... I hope he holds the belt for a long time as he's an exciting champ (when he's not hurt), but I see him losing against Melendez and most guys in the top 5 not named Henderson.

Dude he gets hit square in the chin and then falls down. If that doesn't count as a knockdown, then I don't know what does. Watch the fight again, even the commentators mention that Bart dropped Pettis and that it was a big moment in the round.

Sometimes a punch may look weak but have a good effect, it does seem like a knockdown.

btw, thanks for posting about the Reddit AMA, I havent seen anyone posting about it here on Sherdog and I don't follow twitter and the likes of it.
