He hasnt got much of a choice...he's intelligent enough to understand that...and even if he fails and then never gets a unification...at least he has the WEC belt...they cant take that away from him.
The UFC should either refrain from making promises, or be honourable and fulfill their promises regardless of better business sence...but I dont think Dana White cares about keeping his Word. He probably isnt really bothered...but where I come from, a mans word is his integrity and honour...if he makes a vow and doesnt come true he is untrustworthy as a person. I dont end up close friends or have much regard for people who cant be trusted...because they have questionable loyalty...and thats one of my central cores of importance.
I agree Pettis needs to fight He can wait a year for Frankie to beat Maynard again. I think its bs that Pettis didn't get the fight but we all know the UFC is all about the money, what fans want, and then WHATS RIGHT.
Pettis said he would rather fight than wait in Inside MMA if im not mistaking.
I was just pulling REV's leg cause he said Pettis decided to fight like 3 times in one sentence

He made the decision to fight, Pettis decided to fight, Anthony Pettis decided to fight instead of waiting for the winner. I respect the heck out of that.
Man people are quick to bash Dana! dang.
