Former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis returned to the win column at last night’s UFC on FOX 21 event in Vancouver, this after he submitted Charles Oliveira in the third-round of their co-main event bout.
The fight with Oliveira served as Pettis’ featherweight debut and the submission victory snapped Anthony’s three-fight losing skid.
Following his much needed win, “Showtime” spoke to reporters at the post-fight news conference where he detailed his upcoming plans:
“I went through a lot of stuff. I have to thank my family, my girlfriend. Everyone around me that just kept me focused and just made me keep pushing. We pushed through, we got a new division, a new goal… Two division champ, and that’s what I’ve set out to do.”
“I am looking for title shots. I’m trying to get down to a title shot. Whatever puts me in that position, we will figure that out. I’ll sit down with my team, figure out the performance and go from there.”
