Anthony Pettis joins Ariel Helwani's MMA Show to talk about his upcoming UFC 241 bout against Nate Diaz. Pettis explains that while Diaz is a "tough dude, he turns it on for the cameras" and now it's time to back it up. Pettis tells Ariel that Dana White contacted him to fight Conor McGregor in New York City, but that never materialized so he hung back and kept his head down, and was contacted about Nate Diaz. Pettis says that if he had the choice to fight Conor McGregor or Nate Diaz he would take Diaz all day.

He’s just trying to sell a fight. Sounds like lies coming out of his mouth. It’s really not from the heart.

"Pettis is a bully" is a negative or positive sentence. I totally mean it negatively

If this fight doesn't come through, then I'm done with being a fan of Nate. Nobody cares about the shit you be doing outside of the octagon. Seriously that street shit should be kept in the streets, and if your going to bring it in to the octagon, make sure your really bringing it in to the octagon, otherwise nobody is going to give a fuck anymore other than your street cats in your neighborhood. There's more in this world than whatever is going on in your hometown. I'm not saying Nate should change his ways I'm just saying Nate needs to bring his ways to the Octagon and stand his ground, and keep them there by continuing to fight. cause other than that, no one gives a fuck that you said you smacked Khabib upside the head. That really don't mean shit other than you slapped him upside the head. Anybody can do that to anybody. Just bring that shit straight into the octagon. That way it can be settled no matter the was said.
