I’m confident coming back and I have no doubt in my game.” “I think the fight’s going to be exactly what all the fans and the media think it’s going to be,” Cerrone said. “We’re going go and throw the (expletive) down. I mean Anthony is where he is because of where his talent is.” “I wouldn’t say (Cerrone is as well-rounded),” Pettis said. “He’s got a good stand up game and he’s a decent wrestler. I still know what’s coming.” “Everybody knows what my style is and what I’m going to do,” Pettis said.
