Anthony Pettis responds to Gray Maynard: He's jealous of my level of successPosted on May 16, 2011, 05:14 PM by Joey Santosus
Top Lightweight contender Anthony Pettis, who was in attendance for a Xyience Energy Drink photo shoot, discusses the state of the 155-pound division and responds to Gray Maynard's claims that he's only looked good fighting "scrubs" in the WEC. "Showtime" admits that he was disappointed to hear that Edgar vs. Maynard III had been canceled, but assures that his focus remains on his upcoming bout with Clay Guida.
Pettis was originally expected to challenge the winner of January's Edgar-Maynard II in a bout that would unify the UFC and WEC Lightweight titles. In a rare turn of events, however, a winner failed to emerge from the UFC 125 match-up, setting up a third encounter between the two and leaving Pettis to wait in the wings. Eager to make his promotional debut though, the Roufusport product accepted the fight with Guida, who he will face at the TUF 13 Finale in June.
