There was a time when Anthony Pettis was the next lightweight to get a shot at UFC's 155-pound title.

OK, there were three times.

And now he's finally get that title shot, only it will come in the featherweight division. Still, the latest poll results (which are less scientific than a VHS tape from 1986) indicate you want to see him fight Ben Henderson, too.

Who will get the next lightweight title shot after Ben Henderson vs. Gilbert Melendez in April?

73% -- Anthony Pettis

11% -- There will be a Henderson-Melendez rematch first

11% -- Eddie Alvarez

5% -- Gray Maynard

0% -- Jim Miller
