Anthony Pettis is a former World Extreme Cagefighting champion and carries that mantle proudly with him into the UFC. He was initially slated to fight for the UFC lightweight belt when he moved over to the Octagon, but circumstances beyond his control sidelined that fight and he’s now on the sidelines with an injury waiting for his next fight to come down the pike.

There have been rumors of a fight between Pettis and Strikeforce champion Gilbert Melendez, but Pettis says he is focused first and foremost on the UFC belt.
