UFC 197: Anthony Pettis Comments on Loss to Edson Barboza

Anthony Pettis

Anthony Pettis was handed his third consecutive loss by Edson Barboza at UFC 197, but after the bout, the former lightweight champ was graceful in defeat.

Pettis wasn’t blown out of the water or anything, but Barboza outscored “Showtime” with punches and punished him with inside leg kicks.

After the entertaining fight, which saw Pettis lose via unanimous decision, the highlight reel striker tweeted:

Pettis was coming off decision losses to Rafael dos Anjos and Eddie Alvarez heading into the bout. The 29 year-old’s record now stands at 18-5.

UFC 197 took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
