Anthony Pettis laughed at Jose Aldo saying he is scared

Mike McGinnis

"Showtime" says he has no reason to be worried about Aldo right now because they won't fight any time soon.

Anthony Pettis is confused about the idea that he is avoiding Jose Aldo. The UFC featherweight champion constantly says that his fellow title holder isn't interested in that fight but "Showtime" stated to Combate.com how he sees the situation.

I laughed of what he said because it's me who is challenging Aldo since the beginning. I would drop of my division to fight him. I'm definitely not afraid to face him. This fight is going to happen, it's a matter of time. He has an opponent to come and I have a lot of time before my next fight, so there is no reason to give atention to him right now. We have more or less a year until this fight can happen.

The UFC 155-pound champion is sure in which division this fight is going to happen.

This fight will happen at the lightweight division. To him there is no reason to stay at featherweight, where lacks competition to him. I'm already big to lightweight. I don't need to suffer with the weight cut because I'm the champion. It makes sense for us fight at my division or we can fight in a 160 pounds catchweight.

Pettis will coach TUF 20 opposite Gilbert Melendez and will defend his belt against "El Niño" in the last UFC card of 2014 which is likely to be UFC 182.
