The champion UFC in lightweight Anthony Pettis (17-2) commented on José Aldo's words (23-1) that it avoids superfight.
"I laughed at Aldo's words because it I threw down to him a challenge from the very beginning. I was ready to pass into its division and, definitely, I am not afraid to meet it face to face.
Sooner or later this fight will take place, it only a matter of time. Aldo has an opponent on queue, I have still time a great lot before the following duel, and now simply there is no need to pay it attention. Ahead at least a year more.
Our duel will pass in lightweight. Aldo has nothing to do in a semi-easy division, there for it simply there is no worthy competition. I have no need to drive weight because now I am a champion, and for both of us it makes sense to fight in an easy division, or we can meet in the intermediate weight to 72,5 kg" — Pettis told.
