    Who at lightweight would give Pettis the most trouble?

    Apparently, injuries give Pettis the most trouble. Starting to think one of his parents were glass.

    Pettis is my favorite fighter and there are only 3 challenges i see....
    Khabib, Melendez and Aldo(no order, funny those could be his next 3 opponents)

    Khabib is a beast but it won't be easy doing that leaping shit on Pettis, who keeps distance quite well. Melendez is the biggest threat IMO.

    I personally think Grant is a scary fight. Welterweight power/Iron chin, the bombs he absorbed vs Maynard was scary.

    Gotta be Khabib considering how Guida beat him.

    As in any fight, inside or outside of the cage, we are our own worst enemies.

    Khabib, and I don't even think Khabib is that great. We just haven't seen Pettis deal with someone who is going in there to lay on him since Guida. Khabib is essentially a better version of Guida with better striking. There's wrestlers and then there's grinders.

    This. I don't see a lot of people stopping Grant at lightweight. Dude's enormous for that weight-class.
