7 times. 5, if you count UFC only. But I get your point

It should be a catchweight at 150.

This fight should happen in the next year or some match-makers need to be smacked.

Bullshit. Dana just doesn't want a champ getting knocked off

One of the GOATs at LW? Are you serious? He's definitely earned his spot as #! but lets not get ahead of ourselves.

What??? He is not even close to the LW GOATs.

I´m pretty sure that he is going to be among them one day but now he has to establish himself as a solid champion in the most stacked division. Is not like he cleaned the division.

That does not have any sense. Both guys have work to do in their respective divisions... specially Pettis.

The only way that this can happen is if Aldo decides to move permanently to 155 and asks for an immediate title shoy.

At first I screamed in my head.

Then I considered the thought. If both were to work their way back to the title/#1 contender, and have the 4th fight in the UFC. Epic.

This could be possibly the greatest rivalry in MMA history spanning the best of 7!?
