This is a phenomenal matchup -- which we know because we've seen it once before. It's a close fight to predict, but Pettis has reached another level in stand-up. He's hard to take down and mentally tough enough to hang with Henderson's pace. It's his hometown and he's got that edge of beating him the first time.
