    If you win the Diaz fight what's next for you?

    Do you call out Darren Till or Masvidal?
    Do you beg Dana for a title shot?
    Do you sit on the sidelines and wait for your teammate Ben Askren to get his title shot?
    Do you head to the nearest arena and sign autographs?
    Do you take a picture of your tight outfit and post it on instagram?
    Do you post on Sherdog?

    I continue my streak of fun fights and I give Aldo his farewell fight at 155lbs.

    What Pettis does after that spectacular knockout of Wonderboy is extremely important for how the remainder of his career will play out.

    He could easily make a play for the welterweight title after a win like that over the opponent he did it to.

    Masvidal too, for that matter. Those two definitely should fight each other if Pettis beats Diaz.

    If Pettis beats Diaz he should be calling for a title eliminator at the very least.

    So 3 guys might be eventually top 5 ww and all too friendly to fight?

    Is this the NBA or something?

    Call out Conor obviously. You're not gonna get what you want. Might as well gamble.

    I activate my 10% off coupon for used reebok gear and half drunk protein shake at UFC Performance Institute, only to find out that it expired as a one day only duration ten years ago.

    He’s ranked 8. Diaz is unranked. A win should not move him up in any way. Not even to the point of asking for a title eliminator. It’s completely ridiculous.

    Let’s get the sentimentality out of this bulshit, and start making fights that make sense in the rankings. Unless it’s a fun fight. But if it is a fun fight. Don’t expect to get title leverage from it.

    Fuck no.

    Keep taking fun fights that pay me well and not give a shit about rankings or titles or even divisions

    I don't think pettis would be in any rush to call for a Usman title fight. try to parlay your win streak into a conor fight or possibly contender bout at LW

    Either of these. Pettis and Aldo both have had each others names come out their mouths for years. Now is perfect for it.

    Allegedly Pettis was offered a Conor fight but it obviously fell through. Good fight for both if he beats Nate.
