Anthony Pettis: 'Joe Lauzon would be a great fight for me'

Joe Lauzon is looking for his next opponent. Could it be Anthony Pettis?

Let me give you the Lau-down on the next opponent for Anthony Pettis.

Fresh off his UFC 136 strangulation of Melvin Guillard, former "Ultimate Fighter' and perennial dark horse Joe Lauzon has become the man to beat for any 155-pound title chaser.

Including Anthony Pettis, who told Cage Fanatic it would make for a "great fight:"

"I don't know who my next opponent is but I'm going for that title shot, that title shot run, so anybody who's a top five guy, I'm ready for them. Joe Lauzon beat Melvin Guillard, I think that would be a great fight for me."

"Showtime," who also picked up a win at UFC 136 by outpointing Jeremy Stephens, is gunning for an eventual title fight against division kingpin Frankie Edgar, but knows he has his work cut out for him before that dream can become a reality.

Hear more from the former WEC lightweight champion after the jump.

How about it Maniacs, can anyone think of a more exciting fight for either of these two dynamic lightweights?
