    Little bit of a step down for Pettis, I was hoping for a top 10 matchup.

    Oh well, will watch.

    I came here to bash the fact he was still in the UFC than I realized I was thinking of Dhiego Lima

    Should have been Sergio Pettis vs. Louis Smolka.

    Kid is still only 22. Big-time potential is still there for him.

    Promotion does him no favors putting him on the same card as his brother.

    I'm taking Kelades in this fight. Well rounded and tough. Pettis has a suspect chin and is hittable, making 125'ers with power his nemesis.

    Which is why I see this as a favorable matchup for Pettis. From what I have seen, Kelades is does not seem to have much power his striking has looked rather awkward. The athleticsim difference should be very much in Pettis favor.

    Woo! Been waiting to see who Chris would get next.

    Kelades has been given some tough fights. He needs to get this thing to the ground, unless he's made some serious improvements in the stand-up while he's been off.

    Thought Anthony said he would never fight on the same card as Sergio again, after lil bro got KO'd by Ryan Benoit.
