Anthony Pettis: ‘My Striking Is Better Than Melendez”

“He is a good opponent but he won’t fight against me like he did against Diego Sanchez. I’m going for the knockout or the submission. I won my last three fights in the first round and I’m coming to win. Melendez has what it needs to be at the top of division, he is there for a reason. He did a good fight against Ben Henderson and beat Diego but I feel that my striking is better than his. I have kicks, punches, reach in my favour and my striking is better. I have to avoid the takedowns and be sure that I will fight my fight.”

UFC lightweight champion, Anthony ‘Showtime’ Pettis, tells, Brazil’s Tatame.com, that he believes he has the striking advantage over his next opponent, Gilbert Melendez.
