Sergio Pettis secured a huge win last day at UFC 225 when he edged out Joseph Benavidez. The split decision victory over Benavidez puts Pettis in a prime position in the Flyweight division and now he wants to fight the winner of Demetrious Johnson vs. Henry Cejudo.
He revealed the same during a post-fight interview where he also talked about his fight with Benavidez.
“One hundred percent, that’s what I want. That’s what Benavidez was looking forward to after this fight. I went out here and got the job done, and I believe that’s what’s next for me. I was nervous. Anytime it goes to the judges you never know who is judging the fight. He did have some good cage control and some good takedowns in there, so I didn’t know how they were going to judge it,” Pettis said.
With the win, Pettis improved his record to 17-3 and bounced back from his defeat to Henry Cejudo as well.
