Anthony Pettis (15-2) spoke to www.itsyourcorner.com today about his upcoming clash with fellow WEC veteran, Donald Cerrone (19-4). "Showtime" plans to live up to his nickname with a knockout, then call out lightweight champion Benson Henderson (18-2).
"Everybody knows, I think even (Cerrone) knows, my stand-up's my strength. I plan on knocking him out. If he tries to stand with me, I don't think he's going to like it very much ... My fighting style's flashy, so I'm going to continue to amaze the fans. If I fight safe it's not me, so I need to get myself out there and go for good high-risk, high-reward moves ... Yeah, I'm definitely going to call (Benson Henderson) out. That's what I want, that's the fight I want. That's where I need to be at to get my career to the next level. I don't think he's ducking me. I think he's kind of avoiding me a little bit, but it's not really up to him, it's up to the UFC to set the match-up, then the contracts get signed."
