Anthony Pettis Says Jose Aldo is a Tougher Fight Than Ben Henderson
Posted by Larry Csonka on 02.06.2013



- Anthony Pettis recently spoke about his choice to move to featherweight to fight Jose Aldo. Here are the highlights…

On Moving to Featherweight: "For me, it's been something I've been thinking about for a while," Pettis on Tuesday told "UFC Tonight" on FUEL TV. "I can make the weight easily. The reason I haven't done it before is Erik Koch – a teammate of mine who was right up there for a title shot. I didn't want to cross paths with him, so I pushed that back a little bit. But after being at the fights (at UFC 156), I thought it was the right idea to call out Aldo. He's at the top of the division. For me, it's just wanting to fight the best."

On Facing Aldo Over Henderson: "To me, Aldo's a tougher fight," Pettis said. "That's why I asked for it. He's one of those guys going through his opponents like crazy. He just beat the last 155-pound champ. I think Aldo's the tougher challenge for me. I beat Ben Henderson once, and I think I'm going to be doing it again soon. But right now, I think Aldo's the guy that's on the radar."

On The Fight: "The biggest thing is where he's good at – he's good at what I'm good at," Pettis said. "He likes to stand and trade and bang and I feel like I'm a little more well-rounded and I can offer him a big challenge.... This is one of those fights the fans want to see. I'm excited to be part of it. Injuries do happen, but I think this is one of those fights everyone wants to see. August is a long time away, so as long as we train smart, it'll happen."
