    It HAS to be against Chad Mendes if he does.

    Aldo has earned the chance to move up if he wishes. Pettis has not earned any such reward as an instant title shot, particularly when he was going to get the insta-title shot before winning the LW title. Hype =/= earning a shot.

    and kevo I agree 100 percent.
    Whoever is willing to switch weight classes... should be up to the fighter if they want to move up or down. And if neither are willing then forget the whole thing and move on with their respective divisions.

    Have Aldo keep his title, move up to LW and fight for that title. If he wins, he drops the FW belt. If he loses he can either stay at LW and drop the FW belt or go back to FW and defend his title

Also I do not understand why Aldo would even have to give up the title in the first place considering Silva took non title bouts at different weight classes multiple times. Maybe it is different since Pettis is champ but I still think it is dumb.

    Problem is, a catch weight fight would tie up both champs for too long without giving contenders a shot at a belt in both divisions.

    Things were a different game when Silva was the champ. The UFC had a few well established and marketable champions to ensure the promo beast kept on and PPV numbers kept moving forward. This is very different from the UFC's current situation with a couple inactive/injured champs, a couple 'new' champs and even a division which is lacking a current belt holder.

    Aldo/Pettis issues 'resolved'
    “I think what Aldo was worried about, is if Aldo moves up to 155 and vacates the title, he wants to be treated like a champion in this fight - which he would be,” UFC president Dana White said.

    “All the things that he gets at 145 pounds as a champion he would receive, and I think that was part of the issue, and that was all worked out today.”

    Those ‘things’ presumably include a cut of pay-per-view revenues, which Aldo receives in his capacity as featherweight champion. It is a significant revenue stream and not one that would be given up lightly
