    Pettis beats both handily. Better striking defense than Barboza, also won't have to fear TDs. I feel Pettis beats any striker. Alvarez gets finished as well.

    They could do a battle of Eds. The winner gets Pettis.

    Finishes Alvarez, drops a decision to Barboza. Edson is the best offensive striker at lightweight, make no mistake.

    In b4 gifs of him getting caught.

    Alvarez fight needs to happen
    sooner than the Barboza fight needs to happen,
    I feel. Alvarez, imo, doesn't have much of his
    physical prime left....in a division where it's
    pretty much imperative to be at your peak
    athletic ability.

    Some would argue pettis is the best
    offensive striker in the bracket.
    So it won't be like either man is getting blown
    out the water. Remind me again, though...

    How's his defensive striking?

    Think it will probably end up being Pettis/Barboza and Alvarez/Dariush.

    Edson is not a better offensive striker than Pettis. If he was he wouldn't of got out struck by Michael Johnson.
