Anthony Pettis Move To Feathweight Only Temporary? Last WEC Champion Eyeing Lightweight Return Sooner Than Later

Anthony Pettis had an interesting interview with the NY Post about his upcoming bout with Jose Aldo for the featherweight title in Brazil. One quote in particular stands out:

“A lot of things led to my cutting down to 145. I was tired of waiting for a 155 pound title shot.

It’s not a permanent weight cut (to featherweight). But a striker like myself and Aldo, it doesn’t really matter what weight class it happens at. It’s going to be fireworks either way. ”

Kubryk’s Take: I love the matchup as a fight fan but it didn’t make sense from a purely sporting sense. And the fact that Pettis won’t be long for featherweight, and Aldo eyeing a move up to lightweight after this fight anyways, we could see them facing off at lightweight sooner than later as well.
