Häromdagen stod det klart att den forne lättviktsmästaren Anthony Pettis kommer att möta Nate Diaz under UFC 241 i augusti.
Pettis menar att han även innan detta blivit erbjuden ett möte mot forne dubbelmästaren Conor McGregor.
Via ’MMA Mania’:
There were some big names thrown my way. Conor McGregor was thrown my way from Dana in August but then that didn’t happen. So I just pulled back, hung out and was training and then Nate Diaz popped up. It’s perfect.
Pettis är dock nöjd med sin matchning mot Diaz:
Diaz, 100 percent. I just don’t like the guy. That’s just how it is, I am not that dude, but this is just one guy I do not like.
I am going straight to work, I can’t wait to hurt this guy. This is personal fight for me, I am going to work right away. No weight cut, simply training for a fight.
Pettis berättade också om Diaz och hans gamla ’beef’:
It’s a perfect fight for me. You know me and Nate, we have had beef and drama for a long time, so this is something that was supposed to happen a long time ago and it’s finally happening.
I don’t even remember where it started, what event. I was the champion, but we have always had drama. And every time we saw each other it’s like something was going to happen. It was just one of those things that he may have been jealous that I was the champ, he wanted a shot at me.
Pettis mötte senast Stephen Thompson under Fight Night 148, där han segrade via knockout i rond 2.
