one of the issues that has happened in past is that fights aren't easy in the ufc for the most part, people lose and stuff changes, you have to strike while its hot or it ends up being a fight people don't want to see, or one of the people loses and then all steam is gone. pettis' first defense should be vs aldo. why wait, bot can fight @ the same weight, there is really no reason not to. lets assume aldo wins, ok pettis might want a rematch but he can easily go down. same with aldo can lose and just keep being champ, this is perfect for both of them atm.
