Anthony Pettis (24-10 MMA, 11-9 UFC), legendary MMA fighter, defeated Alex Morono last weekend and looks forward. At UFC Vegas 17, the former champion had an impeccable image and made it clear that he still has much more to go. Therefore, he spoke with the press in the last hours and made it clear what he would like for his next fight. This is precisely where the name of Tony ferguson, with whom he already saw himself face to face a long time ago.
Knowing this, the American began by explaining the following about it: “I think Tony makes sense. I think Tony ferguson he’s coming off his two losses and he’s fighting tough guys. That’s what I hate about this sport, the guys say ‘Oh Tony finished.’ He’s a dangerous guy, but I think it would be a good fight for me to get back into the lightweight mix, and he’s still up to the task. “
He caught me early with those elbows. I think I’ll make some adjustments there and have a full training ground for that. Not taking anything away from him, but I took that fight in no time, the weight cut was horrible, and I wasn’t mentally there in that process. He was doing these 155 fights because he had to. I didn’t want to and that’s the difference right now. I’m making decisions outside the Octagon to make these fights easier, “he added.
Will you renew contract with UFC?
Although the one at the weekend was his last contest with the company, he said: “I don’t know. I think that was the risk of taking this fight and not re-signing a UFC contract. Usually I re-sign my UFC contract with three fights left or two fights left. This time, I said, ‘I’m 33 years old. I’ve been in this game. This is my eleventh year and a half with this company, man. I’ve been in this company for a long time. I love this place. I grew up under these lights.
“They made me who I am, but at this point, I’m just going to take my time, go to Christmas, have my New Years and then see what happens in early 2020, and see what happens in 2021. No, not really. If I had let that go to my head, then I would have fought a different fight out there. I don’t think my job was at stake. I earned the right to fight where I am. I can fight with the best », he closed Anthony Pettis.
