One day after Pettis said Lauzon would be a “great fight” to continue his push for a title shot, Lauzon said he’s also open to the matchup if it’s what the UFC wants.
“I think it would be an exciting fight,” Lauzon told the Boston Herald. “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.”
Lauzon (21-6) stunned Melvin Guillard at UFC 136 with a 47-second submission of one of the division’s top contenders, while Pettis (12-2) put his wrestling on display in a unanimous decision over Jeremy Stephens to rebound from losing his Octagon debut to Clay Guida.
