Apparently Cerrone & Pettis Lost TUF Coaching Gig Due To Pettis Injury | UFC NEWS


“[I'm] still recovering from shoulder surgery, and it’s taking longer than expected. I was hoping to get ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ gig because I was told it was me and [Donald] Cerrone coaching, and now it’s not happening. I’m just frustrated with everything, man… I’m hoping to return in January.”

According to the rising lightweight, Anthony Pettis, he and Donald Cerrone were slated to get the TUF 17 coaching slot prior to the Jones and Sonnen booking.

As he explains it to mmafighting.com, an injury forced the lightweight due out of the coaching positions and into a potential fight in January.

Pettis vs. Cerrone or Jones vs. Sonnen – which duo makes for better TV?

  2. Aleksey says:

    Pettis vs Cerrone all the way

  3. JustAFan says:

    Wow. Look what 1 kick can do for a career. Pettis is gonna end up being the Frank Mir of lightweights. Hell climb to the top just to get dismantled by the top guys of the division. Certone is gonna kill this clown

  4. AlYankovik says:

    Who did he injure his shoulder while kicking a guy in the head? This fight should not be for the #1 contender, it should be for who gets to keep his eyebrows, if Pettis loses, he has to shave his eyebrows and keep the fake mustache.

  5. Josiah says:

    the only reason i like pettis is because of that kick to ben’s face..real awesome.
