Pettis: I hope Silva doesn’t come back
Anderson Silva’s camp has already reported that the former UFC champion would like to fight again after he recovers from his broken leg. One person who would rather not see him come back is UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis:
“I hope he doesn’t [come back] because why?” Pettis told Yahoo Sports Tuesday night at a Monster headphones event as part of the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show. “His legacy is already fulfilled. What’s he going to come back and win the belt? He’s done what he’s going to do in the sport.”
While he wasn’t cageside at UFC 168 for Weidman vs. Silva 2, Pettis was watching the fight as it happened live from his Milwaukee sports bar.
“I couldn’t even watch it,” Pettis added. “It was disgusting. It sucks because he’s one of the greatest of all-time. He’s the Muhammad Ali of MMA and the way he went out sucks.”
