Anthony Pettis has seen it all and has accomplished a lot in his world championship MMA career.


Even with having won titles in multiple organizations, the opportunity to take on new talent in the Professional Fighters League along with having a set schedule was something he couldn’t pass up.


The heralded lightweight will be making his PFL debut on April 23 in Atlantic City against Clay Collard. While adding to an already impressive career is of the utmost importance to him, with this new journey and new format, he also wants to take more in and enjoy himself more.


“I’ve been around for such a long time in this sport and I’m kind of a pioneer, which is crazy, because I’m only 34 years old,” Pettis said. “I’m looking to come in here and stay present and enjoy the moments because that’s what it’s all about. I want to go in there and enjoy the moment, don’t fight for the next fight, just keep that moment of the next 15 minutes in the octagon in mind. I’m going to go clock in, be present, have as much fun as possible and continue building my legacy.”
