Pettis: Title Shot in UFC Debut Is ‘Scary’

By Staff Jan 5, 2011
Anthony Pettis, on “The Savage Dog Show,” discussing the fact that his win over Benson Henderson has earned him a lightweight title shot in his UFC debut at just 23 years old:

“It’s kind of scary to be in the position I’m in. I’m going for a UFC title in [my] first UFC fight. If it doesn’t go right, a lot can go wrong in that fight right there. You lose confidence losing the fight. A lot can go wrong right there. My big thing is I want to last in this sport. I want to keep my name in this sport for a long time. I’m 23 and I want to evolve with the sport and see how far I can take this.”
