I think champions should be allowed to turn down - or at least question - fights, when the "challenger" hasn't even fought in the division in which he's campaigning for a title shot.
Aldo is young and has plenty of time to cement his legacy in 'super fights' (I hate that term) with big names, but for now Aldo should be fighting legitimate featherweight contenders, and no one else.
Give Pettis a fight (or two) at 145, then (and if) sign the Aldo fight, not before.
