Anthony Pettis Hoping UFC Pairs Him Up With Jose Aldo

Anthony Pettis Hoping UFC Pairs Him Up With Jose Aldo

UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis doesn’t really care what the UFC decides about pairing him up against UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo – he just wants the fight.

Pettis is currently rehabbing from an injury that kept him out for the remainder of 2013 and into this year after defeating Benson Henderson for the belt.

Following an Aldo title defense, UFC president Dana White confirmed plans to pair the two champions up. While their management teams seem to have differing thoughts on where the bout goes down, “Showtime” told Inside MMA recently that he doesn’t care about that.

“It’s up to the UFC, whatever they decide,” he said. “Catch-weight, 155, 145…I’m always game.”

Pettis (17-2) did say he wants to “defend my belt” because he “just got (it).

“He’s defended his belt a lot of times already.”

Pettis is looking at a return from his knee injury in early summer.
