Who I believe could dethrone Pettis

Josh Thomson.

Regardless of the flack I'll probably receive, I believe he's the best LW on the planet right now. Since his 2012 return, he's looked phenomenal. He controlled a great striker in KJ, fought Gilbert to a decision I believed he won, and topped it off with a KO win in his UFC debut against the durable Nate Diaz, who'd never before been knocked out.

I absolutely believe he has the skills to beat Pettis soundly. I don't see Pettis' standup style meshing well against Thomson's, and don't see the fight hitting the floor from a Pettis takedown probable.

If not Thomson, who do you think could dethrone the new champion?
