Anthony Pettis has a future shot at UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo in his sights but took the time out this week to respond to a recent challenge from UFC lightweight/welterweight Nate Diaz:
“I heard his interview and it just makes me laugh. I mean, the guy just got head kick knocked out by a pretty good striker, but for him to call me out it's funny to me because my striking is one of the best in the lightweight division.
I think he's trying to keep his name relevant and trying to stay in the mix, but I mean after losing like that it's – there's not much more you can do in the lightweight division. I think he's going to be moving back to welterweight and again, the comments are funny to me and if he does want to fight I'll take an easy payday.”
