Anthony Pettis Only Wants The Biggest Fights

As mentioned before, Anthony Pettis expressed his interest in a 145 pound championship fight with Jose Aldo. This time around, Pettis talks more in-depth with Ariel Helwani. This situation does unfortunately have the potential to put the UFC 155 and 145 pound belts on hold, as Pettis was announced as the no.1 contender at 155 pounds a few weeks ago. Time will tell, but if I had to guess, I’d say Pettis will fight Jose Aldo, and Gilbert Melendez will face Benson Henderson next.
