“I hope he doesn’t [come back] because why?” Pettis told Yahoo Sports Tuesday night at a Monster headphones event as part of the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show. “His legacy is already fulfilled. What’s he going to come back and win the belt? He’s done what he’s going to do in the sport…I couldn’t even watch it. It was disgusting. It sucks because he’s one of the greatest of all-time. He’s the Muhammad Ali of MMA and the way he went out sucks.”

In a recent interview with Yahoo! Sports, UFC lightweight champion, Anthony Pettis, discussed the career of former middleweight champ, Anderson Silva.

While some may not want to see Silva re-enter the eight-sided cage, according to a recent statement from Dana White ‘The Spider’ will return.

Do you agree with Pettis?
