Things can change in the blink of an eye in the UFC's lightweight division. Just ask Anthony Pettis.

Following UFC 144, Pettis had been pegged to face newly crowned lightweight champion Ben Henderson who won the title following a five round war against Frankie Edgar.

But now things have changed as it was announced this week that instead of Pettis, Henderson's first title defense will be against Frankie Edgar who jockeyed for a rematch after losing the title too Henderson when their fight went to the judges after five rounds.

UFC President Dana White confirmed the fight will take place some time this summer though he did not specify exactly when it will happen.
