Friday, August 09, 2013

Anthony Pettis is without a doub one of the most exciting fighters on the UFC roster and that’s a style he hopes to bring to UFC championship fights, which he says have become point fights:

“You see a lot of champions becoming point fighters,” Pettis said. “These guys want to keep their belts and there’s two sides of that story. Every challenger is very talented. Look at the lightweight division, everybody there is very well matched. It’s going to take a factor to change that to have somebody dominate these fights. That’s what I’m looking to do. All I can do is go in there and implement my game plan and hope for the best.”

“I want be the guy that goes out there and gives the fans a show. That’s what it’s all about at the end of the day,” Pettis said. “You’ve got so many fight fans and so many fighters, but I like to be that guy that fight fans want to watch because they don’t know what’s going to happen. I strive to be that different fighter and set myself apart from the group.”
