    Good call imo.

    And I still believe in Pettis.

    There are probably better match ups for Pettis, tbh. Have him in a few more fun ones to ride out his career. Kinda wish this wasn't rebooked.

    zabit magomedsharipov vs pettis at 145 pls?

    I think Pettis at 145lbs was over and done with when he missed weight vs Holloway at UFC 207

    Pettis is an idiot.

    Turning down that Khabib fight was a bad move.

    The guy is never going to sniff another title shot in his life.

    I think Cheisa taps him.

    Yeah, I totally get where you're coming from. Granted he probably had a small chance of winning, to get a shot at the top fighter in the division and possibly the belt was bad thing to pass up on. What did he have to lose?

    Bet the house on Chiesa. Pettis is beyond washed up.

    For sure he would have.

    But it's a title shot.

    It's not like Pettis is anywhere near a title shot, and probably will never get one again.

    This would make a great main event for UFC Boise! Make it July 14th in the City of Trees!

    I bet he's getting paid less than if he would've taken that title shot.

    I thought Pettis wanted Khabib but for more money.

    I’m all fairness, what person with a brain wouldn’t ask for more money to go from normal fight to 24 hour notice title fight against Khabib.

    He was already getting paid without fighting, so he’d basically be fighting Khabib for the possibility of a win bonus?
