Anthony Pettis watched the UFC lightweight championship match Saturday night between Benson Henderson and Nate Diaz like much of the MMA world. However, Pettis felt as though he should have been the man challlenging Henderson at UFC on Fox: Henderson vs. Diaz.
“Should have gave me the shot,” Pettis posted on Twitter.
Henderson successfully earned his second title defense, scoring a decision victory vs. Diaz. Pettis was the last man to defeat “Smooth,” claiming the WEC lightweight title before both fighters moved to the UFC.
Pettis could likely secure himself a shot at Henderson with a win over Donald Cerrone. The two are set to collide in early 2013.
