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.
