    Mentally must be tough on him losing the championship. He can see how he changed right after

    I still can't fucking believe they put him on the Wheaties box....

    This was a clear indication the UFC really doesn't know what they're doing...

    Hey lets suggest they put someone who is more than likely going to lose soon due to the incredibly stacked division they fight in, and there have been clear indications throughout his career that he has holes in his game that can be exploited by a significant number potential opponents....But fuck it...Let's do it anyway because Dana thinks he's marketable....Great Idea...What could possibly go wrong?

    RDA is an evil sorcerer who took away Anthony's magical power to find a finish.

    It's unfortunate that his sharp decline coincided with increased PED testing. To his credit, he never pissed hot, he amassed a rather spectacular highlight reel (including the famed "Showtime Kick"), and he became the UFC champion in one of its most competitive divisions, at probably the most competitive time in history (after the UFC/WEC merger).

    These days, however, he is indeed a gatekeeper for younger, up-and-coming fighters seeking that "signature win" on their resume.

    Pettis' career was really weird.

    He came up the ranks looking like a killer. Took Bendo out to get the championship.

    Then literally fell all the way off the map and just looked like a shadow of himself after that.

    Strange, bi-polar career.

    Pettis secured that contract independent of the UFC.

    In all fairness to Pettis RDA took his soul
