Just a week after his stunning knockout over Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone at UFC on Fox 6, Anthony Pettis texted UFC President Dana White asking to face Aldo at 145lbs.
White announced at the UFC 156 post fight press conference that the former WEC champion didn’t waste any time to make his intentions known.
This is an exciting fight considering that Anothony was the last guy to win against the current light weight champ - Ben Henderson
“Anthony Pettis said “I want to move to 145 and fight Jose Aldo”,” White revealed. “He just texted me 10 minutes ago. He’ll meet him at 145, so we’ll see what happens.”
Pettis is currently in line for a shot at the lightweight title following the next bout between champion Benson Henderson and former Strikeforce king Gilbert Melendez, but with their fight not taking place until April, it appears “Showtime” is itching for a title fight.
In the past, Pettis has hinted at a possible move to featherweight, and now it looks he’s throwing down the gauntlet and issuing the challenge to Jose Aldo.
