Anthony Pettis ‘not afraid’ of Jose Aldo, says Aldo should move up for possible superfight

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -- UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis spoke with MMA Fighting in Rio de Janeiro about his recovery after a knee injury, how coaching TUF 20 will help him get 100% healed for his first title defense against Gilbert Melendez, Jose Aldo’s claims that he talks too much and won’t take the fight, why he would only fight Aldo at 155 pounds and much more.

(Editor's note: Some of the questions are hard to hear because of interference, but Mr. Pettis' answers are clear.)
