Anthony Pettis No Longer Next for UFC Champ Frankie Edgar

UPDATE: UFC President Dana White changed his mind and an immediate rematch between Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard is now expected before Anthony Pettis’ title shot.

Despite Frankie Edgar fighting Gray Maynard to a split draw at Saturday’s UFC 125, Anthony Pettis will still face Edgar for the UFC lightweight title next, the UFC announced at the post-UFC 125 press conference.

Pettis earned a title shot with a win over champ Ben Henderson last month at WEC 53 and gained notoriety for his highlight-reel off-the-cage kick in the win along with an appearance on MTV’s “World of Jenks”.
