Minutes after winning the UFC lightweight championship with a first-round armbar of Benson Henderson, Pettis had his next fight picked out. He wants featherweight champion Aldo.
"Joe Silva said to make his job easier. Jose Aldo, we have some unfinished business. My belt or your belt?" Pettis said to the camera at UFC 164 in Milwaukee.
The fight isn't out of the realm of possibility. Aldo was originally scheduled to fight Pettis at UFC 163, earlier this month. The UFC has floated the idea of matching up champions in the past.
But Pettis isn't the only one who has earned a shot at Aldo. Chad Mendes won with a knockout on Saturday night. He lost to Aldo in January of 2012, but has earned four straight knockout wins since.
