Pettis doesn't deserve a title shot at Featherweight or Lightweight

Boring a'ss Lay N pray Guida is at 145lbs (FW) now so by all rights Pettis should have to beat Lay Guida to get a (LEGIT) shot at title. Next to Jon Lay N Pray Fitch Guida should be next fighter released so by all means I am totally ANTI-Guida. But the fact clearly remains too many fighters at LW and FW have had longer winning streaks than Pettis and with his LOSS to Lay Guida and his very close split decision win over Jeremy Stephens who is ranked 69th at LW and even his win over Cerrone who has been on a "FITCH" like skid and only ranked around 15th now. How can Pettis justify jumping in front of Maynard or Melendez both who have beaten Lay Guida and Pettis lost to Lay Guida just a few fights ago. Then at FW I just don't see how Pettis jumps in front of Guida or Swanson, Lamas. Yes I understand the (NEW)UFC mentality has alot of ignorant fans believing in B.S title shots like Sonnen/Jones but it plain doesn't add up for Pettis to jump in front of ACTUAL FW contenders who have earned their title shots the old fashioned way, in the CAGE. However just when the UFC pulls B.S crap like giving Pettis and Sonnen title shots they completely redeem themselves by getting rid of Jon Fitch. So although Pettis doesn't deserve a title shot IMO at FW or LW without at least one more win the UFC has made everything right by releasing Fitch and hopefully they will follow suit shortly by getting rid of the biggest cheater in UFC history Nate "THE CHEAT" Marquardt.
