Anthony Pettis went from being the final WEC lightweight champion to having his UFC unification bout delayed to losing his Octagon debut to Clay Guida at Saturday night’s TUF 13 Finale in Las Vegas.
“I didn’t do enough to get up or get off my back,” Pettis said of Guida’s grinding style in the fight, not saying anything to discredit his opponent.
What does he do now, having lost his title shot? He goes back to work, of course. At 24 years of age, Pettis has time to retool and get back in the championship groove.
“I’m gonna come back stronger.”
