    If Aldo moves up, you gotta put Mendes in the title fight, with either Swanson or winner of Edgar/Bj. I really wanted a Aldo/Mendes rematch, but oh well.

    I love the guy & want to see him as champ but Aldo has definitely paid his due & deserves a shot if he moves up, its not like he is Vitor or Chael moving up.
    even if he had a spectacular performance, he still shouldn't get a title shot because he just got finished in the first round in his fight before that.

    Aldo seriously has to vacate the belt for Mendes to get another shot at the strap? I still think the first fight was bullshit. Mendes would have slammed him down hard and he not grabbed the fence. Oh well, I look forward to seeing the division get shaken up a little bit.

    I think Mendes would have gotten the next shot if Aldo was staying at 145

    Yes, Aldo grabbed the fence, but I don't know that Mendes was anywhere close to a "slam." Mendes was already getting outgrappled and did nothing with one TD that he'd finally gotten.

    Mendes deserves another title shot, for sure, but I wouldn't characterize the first bout as "bullshit" by any means. I'd love to see it, but I don't see a second fight with Aldo going much different from the first one.

    So Mendes/Cub rematch for the title if/when Aldo moves up while Edgar/Penn III will likely determine the next contender. Chan Sung Jung will likely come back and maybe face Lamas in a great matchup. Poirier and Jeremy Stephens could face one another.

    Some pretty good matchups on the horizon. And maybe Barao will eventually move up as well. Urijah Faber could as well if he never gets another crack at the bantamweight title, which may be likely.

    Anthony Pettis on potential Jose Aldo matchup: 'Of course I want that fight'
    http://mmajunkie.com/2014/02/anthony...nt-that-fight/

    “Of course I want that fight,” Pettis told USA TODAY Sports and MMAjunkie on Sunday. “Why wouldn’t I?”

    “Who else is there?” Pettis said. “(Former champion) Benson Henderson just beat (Josh) Thomson, who was supposed to be the top contender. Gilbert Melendez already had his title shot. Why not (Aldo)?”

    I like Benson a lot, he's a really solid guy but he's barely in the discussion for another one at the moment. Not sure why he cares who fighting for the belt when he needs 1 or 2 more impressive wins to get back in there with Pettis. You have to put in work when you've lost twice to the champ. One close decision to Josh Thomson isn't going to cut it.

    I'd like to see Mendes vs either Edgar if he beats BJ or Swanson if not. I think Pettis beats Aldo though, so he'll be back down to face the winner of that match pretty quickly, I think.
