>After winning “Knock out of the Night” against Danny Castillo from WEC 47 on March 6, lightweight Anthony “Showtime” Pettis (9-1-0) is preparing for yet another fight scheduled on the WEC 48 (Aldo v. Faber) fight card. With only a few weeks in between the fights, Showtime will fight Alex Karalexis (10-4-0) on WEC’s first pay per view event on April 24, 2010.
“Showtime” Pettis is looking forward to the fight and wants to go up against the best in the world, no matter the division. Pettis wants title shots and to keep making big statements in his fights. No matter who he fights in the future, you can expect a show because he says he is “going to bring the fire.”
MMA Scraps Radio’s Co-host Pat Barry says “I admire him and the things he does during his training. He’s going to fight his way out of the WEC.(into the UFC)” Pettis, who currently trains with Duke Roufus has a good rapport with Barry. In fact, Pettis even jokes that if Pat Barry doesn’t corner him, he won’t fight.
With a thriving 155lb weight division in the WEC, Showtime wants to prove to himself that he is the best. “I got all the right guys to do this.”
