UFC Quick Quote: Jose Aldo will make Anthony Pettis regret dropping to featherweight at UFC 163

Esther Lin for MMA Fighting

UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo is looking to make Anthony Pettis regret the day he decided to text Dana White for the opportunity to drop down to the 145-pound weight class to challenge him.

"I will prove that he should have stayed at lightweight and not drop down. After the fight, he will regret having fallen down to featherweight. I'm adapted, I always fought here. We have to respect, but here is our world and we will show who we are."

-- Current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo -- much like other 145-pound mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters -- wasn't too happy with the fact that Anthony Pettis "cut the line" for the right to face him. And now, not only does "Scarface' want to do the same and jump the lightweight line after he dispatches of "Showtime" at UFC 163 on Aug. 3, 2013 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, he tells Tatame he also wants to make the former World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) 155-pound champion regret the day he ever decided to make the drop down to the 145-pound weight class. It will be easier said than done, because Pettis is bringing his unique striking arsenal with him to Brazil in hopes of puzzling and then dethroning the longtime champ. Who will live up to their word?
