    ---------------------------

    Also in the news today there is going to be a Dream Super Fight that is taking place on Aug 3 of this year. Two of the most dynamic strikers in all of mixed martial arts will meet Aug. 3 as Anthony Pettis (16-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) is dropping from lightweight to 145 pounds to challenge current champion Jose Aldo (22-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC) for the UFC featherweight title. UFC President Dana White has already booked the fight and had this to say:

    "Two of the baddest dudes in the fight business are going to fight at 145 pounds," White said. "These guys are two of the most amazing, gravity-defying athletes in the sport. I am so pumped for this fight."
    White went on to say the company currently is seeking a venue for the as-yet-unannounced event and that sites in Texas, Chicago, Las Vegas and Rio de Janeiro are all under consideration. Aldo vs. Pettis is expected to headline the card. Anthony Pettis had a say in this decision as he stated:

    "Aldo is a tremendous fighter," Pettis said. "I have all the respect in the world for his skills. I just want to be one of the best in the world, and the only way to do that is to beat the best."
    And:

    "I wouldn't call him out if I didn't really feel confident I could beat him," Pettis said.
    Pettis was expected to challenge for the UFC lightweight title later this year against the winner of an April championship bout between current champ Henderson and Strikeforce import Gilbert Melendez. However, the Milwaukee native said he wasn't comfortable waiting around and instead will now face one of the sport's top pound-for-pound fighters.

    "It's a superfight, and I want to be a part of these fights," Pettis said.
    Dana White said Pettis texted him following the pay-per-view card's main event, which saw Jose Aldo outpoint ex-lightweight champ Frankie Edgar by scores of 49-46, 49-46, 48-47. Pettis wanted to drop to featherweight to challenge the featherweight champ, who's now defended his belt four times. UFC featherweight Ricardo Lamas (13-2 MMA, 4-0 UFC) is not very happy with this news as he tweeted:

    "I should be next in line for that shot at Aldo"
    "I'm kind of sitting here like, 'What am I, a mirage?' That's exactly what I tweeted Dana White, actually,"
    Lamas said.
    "I'm just sitting here trying to figure out where I fit in in all of this."
    Today, Lamas stressed he would wait for Aldo for six months if asked to by the UFC, or he would take the title shot in three months. He also said he would take a main event or co-main event if the promotion decided to skip over him. But that's clearly not what he thinks is the right thing to do. At featherweight, he should be first.

    "I've put in the work at 145 pounds,"
    Lamas said.
    "I've done everything I need to do, and I should be next in line for that shot."
    Yet the idea of Pettis vs Aldo was intriguing enough to White that he entertained the idea of instead putting Lamas in a fight with Chan Sung Jung. He clarified that "The Korean Zombie" was injured and could be out until spring, but he appeared open to the prospect of giving another standout lightweight an immediate featherweight title shot.

    Really looking foward to Aldo vs Pettis. I personally think Pettis has a pretty good chance at beating Aldo.

    Looks like we may never get to see Rousey vs Cyborg now. And it appears Dana jumped the gun with the way he introduced the women's division. Only 2 female fighters are signed as of right now. Not sure what his plan is but he's gonna have to come up with something quick as it's looking like a flop right now.

    UFC makes it's return to London this Saturday with UFC on Fuel TV 7: Barao vs. McDonald. The event takes place @ Wembley Arena which has a seating capacity of 12,500. This marks the first of UFC's visits to England for the year 2013. If you happen to be in the area I would suggest to try to make it to the event. The last time the UFC was in England was @ UFC on Fuel TV 5 this last September.

    I will be posting the UFC Contest within the next day or so. Keep watching the MMA section of the forum for the Contest and any updates.
