Anthony Pettis is fighting against Jose Aldo at UFC 163 for the featherweight championship. Even if victorious against Aldo, don’t look for Pettis to stay in the Featherweight division.

He texted Dana White after Aldo’s title defense against Frankie Edgar at UFC 156 stating that he wanted his hand’s on the UFC featherweight championship.
Anthony Pettis promised that his fight with Aldo will produce nothing but fireworks. How can it not be an exciting fight. If you haven’t seen Jose Aldo’s double knee knockout or Anthony Pettis’ “Showtime Kick”, take a look:
