And my love affair with Cerrone is well documented. I think he's an exceptionally talented fighter who just can't seem to get over that hurdle (Pettis, Diaz, Henderson). Maybe it's a mental thing with him, who knows?
But with that said, Pettis looked fantastic tonight and definitely won me over.
Don't get me wrong, I like Cowboy too. He's a great fighter, very entertaining, and usually seems like a cool guy. But the trash talk outta nowhere on this one made me wanna see Pettis whoop dat ass.
Pettis is a beast though. I've been a fan since his WEC days, and then the World of Jenks episode really sealed it for me. I'm really hoping this title shot comes to fruition this time around.
