"Anthony was obviously disappointed in not getting the title shot, but he also understands why Dana made that decision. After consulting with Anthony and Duke Roufus, we collectively decided that it would be in Anthony's best interest to take a fight in the meantime."

-- Mike Roberts, who represents the last WEC lightweight champion, Anthony Pettis, reveals (via MMAweekly.com) that his fighter won't sit on the sidelines while Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard take care of unfinished business. The crafty 155-pound champion -- who was lined up for a title shot before  Edgar and Maynard fought to a thrilling draw at UFC 125 -- wants to have one bout (and win it) this year before unifying his WEC lightweight title against either the "The Bully" or "The Answer." Who would you like to see "Showtime" fight next? And what will happen if Pettis comes up short -- is it a risk worth taking for "Showtime?"
