LAS VEGAS — While dodging a near sabotage by UFC lightweight Anthony Njokuani, ProMMAnow.com (www.prommanow.com) reporter Anton Skoro caught up with UFC lightweight Anthony “Showtime” Pettis Friday night following his brother, Sergio Pettis‘ unanimous decision victory over Jimmy Jones at Resurrection Fighting Alliance 4.
Pettis talked about coming into enemy territory and the nerves that go along with watching his brother compete on the big stage in his opponent’s home town. He also talked about his brother’s future and how far he thinks he might be away from signing with the UFC.
When Anthony Pettis, who has not fought since February, finally makes his long-awaited return he said he wants a match-up with Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone:
“That’s the fight I want. He’s been talking a lot of sh*t so that’s definitely the fight I want. I don’t think he’s as great as he says he is and I’m going to prove that.”
Pettis also discussed the “The Ultimate Fighter” coaching gig that never materialized, the promised title shot he never got and how these things are motivating factors to keep pressing forward. Finally, “Showtime”, who has been sidelined with a shoulder injury, surgery and subsequent staph infection, tells us when we can expect to see him back inside the UFC Octagon.
