    I say make this fight ASAP since Aldo is injured anyway. Then Pettis vs Aldo in the first quarter of 2014

    Grant is right. Besides, Aldo is a multiple time defending champion, Pettis just won his belt. He should defend his title a couple times before he's thrown into a champion vs champion fight with Aldo. I know everyone wants to see that fight, but shit man now that Pettis is champ, it'd logjam 2 divisions. Ain't nobody got time for that!

    Things depend on how severe Pettis' injury is as well.

    If TJ Grant disposes of another contender, then he's earned the shot. My advice to TJ is to learn how to hype a fight. That would get him some title fights. He's no Chael.

    Hopefully Pettis can get healthy and stay healthy to start defending, but I honestly think with how injury prone Pettis is and that it's usually his knees will end up shortening his career significantly.

    with his resume, TJ shouldn't need to hype a fight to get a title shot. he's earned it, plain and simple.

    One stoppage over a contender after stoppages over a bunch of nobodies doesn't warrant a title shot. Grant hasn't earned shit. Maybe if he'd watch Chael and take some notes he'd get his title shot.

    It just blows me away how this guys talks like he's waited years for this shot. I'm not trying to shit on what he's done so far, I just don't understand why he feels he is the most deserving contender right now. I have Bendo and Gil ahead of him, personally. Now that Bendo isn't champ anymore I have Edgar up there, too. Plenty of guys for Grant to fight while Aldo and Pettis give us an epic match up.

    Really? You have Edgar, 0-2 in his last two 155lb fights and Melendez who just lost in a title shot and hasnt fought since; above him? Thats pushing it...

    You don't need to be Chael when you are actually earning your fights in fantastic fashion.

    There's really no clear cut contender, but frankly I would like to see that fight, just not before the Pettis/Aldo fight. Now had Grant ko's not just maynard but also some other contenders like Hendricks has at WW, then it'd be a different story. All these TJ Grant dicksuckers are ridiculous.

    TJ Grant hasn't earned shit. One stoppage over one contender after stopping a bunch of nobodies isn't good enough. Now if he could talk like Chael, he'd be in a title match.

    Maynard is absolutely positively a good name. Hell, it's a great name, but like I said, stopping one great name after stopping a bunch of nobodies isn't good enough. He needs some mic skills.

    What have Dunham or Wiman done that's worth noting?

    TJ Grant vs Gilbert Melendez or Benson Henderson makes more sense right now...
