Kenny Florian Explains Why Anthony Pettis Got His Featherweight Title Shot
Posted by Larry Csonka on 02.13.2013



- Kenny Florian recently spoke about Anthony Pettis earning a featherweight title shot. Here are the highlights…

On MMA Being a Business: "I understand very well that this is a business. It does come down to the fights that make the most amount of sense."

On Aldo vs. Pettis: "I think that's going to be a very exciting fight, and if we're talking about two guys going at it with styles to entertain, Aldo and Pettis fit the bill."

On Why Pettis Got the Title Shot: "Sometimes divisions require divisions and certain contenders to step up," he said. "In the 145-pound division, after Frankie Edgar, there are no real big names. Unfortunately for Ricardo Lamas, he doesn't have the big name or the huge following that Anthony Pettis has, and that's why Anthony Pettis is getting the next shot."
