Joe Lazuon answers Anthony Pettis' call for fightPosted on October 19, 2011, 06:19 PM by Trent Reinsmith
UFC 136 featured three high level Lightweight fights; Anothony Pettis versus Jeremy Stephens, Melvin Guillard versus Joe Lauzon, and the main event of the evening, Frankie Edgar versus Gray Maynard. When the dust had settled, Pettis, Lauzon and Edgar stood as the victors.
The win for Edgar meant that he remained the UFC Lightweight Champion, while the wins for Lauzon and Pettis left them in prime position to climb the Lightweight rankings.
Earlier this week Pettis expressed his desire to face Lauzon in his next fight, a fight that Lauzon seemed willing to accept. “I think it would be an exciting fight. It doesn’t matter to me who I fight. Whoever the UFC says they want me to fight, I’ll fight. If they want it to be Anthony Pettis, I’ll fight Pettis. It doesn’t really matter to me that much. I’m up for whoever.’ – for more visit BostonHerald.com
