“I have never ran away in my life. Everybody that said that, I finished in the first round. “Cowboy” Cerrone got knocked out in the first round. Ben Henderson, he got finished in the first round. Joe Lauzon, he got finished in the firts round. Jose Aldo can talk and say what he wants, I will not let that affect me. When the fight happen, it will be the biggest fight of lightweight division in history.”
“I just got my belt and I’m in a kind of more comfortable weight class. 145 pounds is tough for me to make. I could do it but it’s very difficult to make 145. So I think is more realistically he coming up to 155 than me coming down to 145. And I think that he cleared out the division. He beat everybody at 145. He’s fighting Chad Mendes again, he beat him with a KO in the first round. It’s going to happen, it’s a matter of time. I have nothing against Jose Aldo, I don’t think that he’s a guy. He’s a amazing fighter. We both are in the prime of our careers, the fans want to see it, so let’s make it happen.”
UFC lightweight champion, Anthony Pettis took time out of his busy schedule to address some trash talk done by Jose Aldo.
