Sergio Pettis Considering Return To Flyweight

Sergio Pettis Considering Return To Flyweight

Sergio Pettis (12-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) earned a unanimous decision victory over Matt Hobar (9-3 MMA, 1-2 UFC) at Saturday’s UFC 181 event in Las Vegas.

The win moved Sergio to 3-1 in the UFC, with all four of those fights taking place in the bantamweight division of 135-pounds.

But after the fight, Pettis suggested that he was seriously considering a return to the flyweight division (125 lbs):

“It was a good performance, but I think I might go down to 125 after this,” Pettis said. “These guys are a lot bigger than me (at bantamweight). I’ve been thinking about it for about a year, and I’m going to do a practice cut to see how it goes.”

Sergio, who is the younger brother of UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, who also fought defended his title at the UFC 181 event, has found success at 125-pounds in the past.

Sergio won the RFA’s inaugural flyweight belt with a 51-second TKO of Dillard Pegg in June 2013.

“I want everyone in (the flyweight) division,” Pettis went on to say. “Whoever the UFC puts in front of me, I’m ready for.”

Pacquiao to Mayweather:  “Come on, let’s fight!”

Pacquiao to Mayweather: “Come on, let’s fight!”

In a recent statement to the media, Manny Pacquiao displayed frustration with Floyd Mayweather’s recent taunting, saying he wants to fight:

“He should fight me now, since I can be ‘easily’ put to sleep! He posted a video of me when I lost to Marquez, so this means he thinks I’m easy to knockout. So come on, let’s fight!”

The potential Pacquiao vs. Mayweather fight is the most anticipated boxing match in the sports recent history.

Whether or not “Money” will accept Pacquiao’s invitation remains to be seen…

Mayweather is undefeated and claims to be the best boxer to ever live.

However, most fight fans feel the only way Floyd can solidify his claims of being the best is to beat the Filipino legend.
