Pettis: ‘I have to remind everyone who I am’

Anthony Pettis
“I gotta go out there and remind everybody of who I am.”

“Gil’s a tough opponent. He’s one of those guys that just goes out there and likes to fight. You saw him in the Diego Sanchez fight throwing bombs, the Ben Henderson fight went five rounds – but that’s the thing for me, I don’t really see him as a big threat. He doesn’t really knock anybody out, he doesn’t submit anybody; he kinda goes out there and keeps the same pace the whole fight, so I’ve got to break that down and make sure he doesn’t go five rounds with me.”

In a recent interview with UFC.COM’s Thomas Gerbasi, the promotion’s lightweight champion discussed his upcoming title defense against Gilbert Melendez.

The two face-off this December at UFC 181.
