Will Pettis Have His Shot at Benson Henderson?
Anthony “Showtime” Pettis could have a shot at his first Title Belt against Benson Henderson, provided he beats Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone on January 26th at the United Center in Chicago.
Pettis has once again been dubbed the next contender in the UFC lightweight division. This ultra-competitive division saw Pettis climb back up to the top position with impressive wins including a knock out Head Kick of Joe Lauzon.

Dana White, UFC President, has stated that “Pettis deserves it… we’ll see what happens.”
Pettis, currently 15-2, and Cerrone, currently 19-4, are set for the main card in January at UFC on fox.
