Anthony Pettis' Manager Says a Featherweight Title Shot Is Something He Can't Pass Up
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 02.15.2013



Anthony Pettis' manager Mike Roberts recently spoke with MMAjunkie about Pettis going to featherweight and more. Check out the highlights:

On Pettis going to featherweight for a title shot: "This one is guaranteed, as much as you can be guaranteed because anybody can get hurt in training."

On Pettis proposing the fight: "I said, 'Yeah, I know. That fight sounds fun.' He watched that fight, and as he watched the fight, he got more excited. He was actually sitting with Urijah (Faber), and Urijah told him, 'Man, I'd love to see that fight.' And that's when Anthony sent the text to Dana (White)."

On a potential lightweight title fight with Benson Henderson: "Benson's fights have all proved they all end up close, with the exception of the Diaz fight. Somebody could get hurt, or there could need to be a rematch. Whichever bout agreement they send us first for a title fight, that's the one we'll take. The Aldo fight really catches Anthony's eye. People have seen Benson lose, because they watched Anthony do it, so they know what's going to happen. Nobody in the UFC has seen Aldo lose, or really even come close to losing."

On an eventual return to lightweight: "He's still more comfortable at 155, because he wants that belt. He's had that goal for so long. He's not abandoning that weight class."
