Pettis: ‘I outclass him like he’s a beginner, this ends in the first’

“I think he’s very basic when it comes to standup. He’s got decent boxing and he’s tough. That’s most Mexican fighters, they are the most exciting fighters, they are tough and have good boxing. Unfortunately for him, that’s my zone. If he wants to stand in there and trade, he’s not going to see me having a Diego Sanchez fight, I’ll tell you that.

“I think I outclass him in the striking like he’s a beginner. He’s still new to striking. His wrestling’s not strong enough to hold me down. Once it’s on the feet, he’s in for a long night. Or maybe a short night.”

“It’s mixed martial arts so anything is possible. With that being said, I don’t see it going past the first.”

The champ, Anthony Pettis broke down his upcoming opponent, Gilbert Melendez, in a recent interview with FOX Sports writer, Damon Martin.
