“I went to try to hit him and I succeeded. It was a great fight, I was able to show my great versatility. There is always something to learn and have the confidence to be better. I think I made a great fight and made it clear that I am up to anything. I want to go back for the title and hopefully Dana White saw it. I have everything to be it again and I will not stop until I get it. He was a great opponent, he gave me a good fight “, was what he highlighted Anthony Pettis.
What he said in the previous
Before the fight, Pettis He said, “Honestly, I couldn’t have fought and put up with it until next year, but no, I didn’t feel any pressure from it. If the UFC decides they don’t want me on that list anymore, I’ve been with this company for 12 years and I’ve seen everything in this company, from the Fertitta brothers, from the sale of the company to where we are at. Now Reebok comes in as a sponsor, I’ve been there for all of this. I don’t feel any pressure on that. It’s a business and I understand it.
“I feel like I’m always on the chopping block. Every time, from the way I fight, it’s like it’s better that he won this fight and it’s awesome or you never know if his job is still available the next day. These hungry young boys always come. So I don’t feel any pressure on that. It is dangerous. I think people are not giving him credit because he does not have a name yet, but these are the fights that are needed to make a name for himself, ”the former champion also explained.
