Grant: I’ve earned Pettis, give me my shot

Sunday, September 01, 2013

Immediately after winning the lightweight title, Anthony Pettis called out for a superfight with Jose Aldo, however one man would like to see Pettis defend his lightweight title at least once, TJ Grant:

“I’m pretty sure Aldo is a little banged up as well right now,” Grant said. “My opinion – I’m a fan, and I love watching UFC fights. I watch all of them, whether they’re people I’m potentially fighting or not, I enjoy it. Pettis against Aldo is an exciting fight.

“But, hey, I just won my last fight in two minutes. I knocked the [Gray Maynard] out. I knocked the guy out before that [Matt Wiman]. I feel like I’ve earned it. I feel like I’m the guy. I’ve been in the UFC a long time. I’ve never really gotten the push that I feel like I need but I’ve also built a lot of experience in fighting and haven’t been in the spotlight, which is nice too. But I’m ready to be there and I’m ready to go out there. Give me the opportunity man. I feel like I’ve earned it.”
