Are you drymountin....Oh, sorry, its you mrkyuss.
Everyone loves his old highlights, kinda like Rampage in pride... yes he has amazing evasive skills, lightning speed, great takedown defense, brutal leg kicks,, but if he is really pound for pound top couple in the world, finish the fight! Look, I know he is a great fighter, but again I felt underwhelmed after his fight. As for Big Foot... six of us jumped out of our seats with those brutal gravy shots!

not to mention he has been avoiding Spider like the plague. His division doesn't have the talent pool of some of the others either.

"Two of the most dynamic strikers in all of mixed martial arts will meet Aug. 3 as Anthony Pettis is dropping from lightweight to 145 pounds to challenge current champion Jose Aldo for the UFC featherweight title.

"Two of the baddest dudes in the fight business are going to fight at 145 pounds," said UFC president Dana White. "These guys are two of the most amazing, gravity-defying athletes in the sport. I am so pumped for this fight."

White said the company currently is seeking a venue for the as-yet-unannounced event and that sites in Texas, Chicago, Las Vegas and Rio de Janeiro are all under consideration. Aldo vs. Pettis is expected to headline the card."

I could understand the girls headlining a free to air. But straight onto headlining a main card? I think Dana EXPECTS all UFC fans to buy every card. I'm boycotting.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not against women fighting. But headlining?
