Pettis: Lightweight Title More Prestigious Than Aldo’s Belt
“I’m done with the injuries. I want to fight 2-3 times a year and defend this belt. I think the 155-pound belt has more prestige. It’s better than the 145-pound belt. There is way more competition at 155. I would say Jose Aldo is the biggest competition in both weight classes so it makes sense for him to move up. There is more money at 155 and we could sell a huge PPV.”
During a recent media tour in Brazil, UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, took time out to discuss his on-again, off-again, feud against his divisional neighboring champ, Jose Aldo (via MMAFighting).
Is he right? Does the UFC’s lightweight strap hold more worth?
