Roufus: We haven’t seen the best of Pettis yet

Friday, December 06, 2013

Anthony Pettis is the UFC lightweight champion and is one of the more dynamic finishes in the sport. Pettis has finished his last three opponents in the first round, but Roufus believes we have yet to the best of the young champion:

“People are critical,” Roufus admitted. “Anthony was so pumped to fight in December. He’d fight constantly (if he could), especially with his new deal the UFC has gotten him. He’d love to fight often.

“So we’re positively moving forward. Time flies in this business. It’s crazy, it’s December already. I remember January, when he fought (Donald) Cerrone with the boys down in Chicago like it was yesterday.

“He’ll be 27 next year, and the crazy thing about Anthony Pettis, I give him a B in his performance against Ben Henderson,” Roufus continued. “That wasn’t even the best Anthony Pettis. He fought the fight with a separated shoulder on a month’s notice. That’s the kind of kid he is. We haven’t even seen the best of Anthony Pettis yet. That’s scary.”
