After making his UFC bantamweight
launching last December, Sergio Pettis is now prepared to return to the resurging
flyweight division, per head coach Duke Roufus:

“We just talked to his management team and we’re seeking to get on the San Francisco card,” Roufus just recently informed MMA Fighting. “He’s looking to return to flyweight. I was with Henry Cejudo at a UFC swimming pool celebration and I stated, ‘Hey, thanks for saving the flyweight division.’

” I suggest, the UFC stated it didn’t go
away, however it truly did disappear, they cut a great deal of fighters, however Sergio desires
to return to flyweight. He had a great deal of success there.”

The flyweight division when diminished to less 12 fighters, without adequate to fill the requirement 15- fighter rankings, however things appear to be gradually returning to service as typical, and it appears the division is here to stay. Old faces like Brandon Moreno and Pettis himself have actually returned to the stabilized rankings, Dana White is preparing future title defend the division, and Sergio Pettis is prepared to kick back into the division he ranked in the leading 5 (presently # 6) after making an 0-1 pitstop in the UFC’s bantamweight division:

“Sergio’s my dear friend, my teammate,” Roufus stated. “Sergio, you want to be a flyweight, you’re gonna be a flyweight. Once I dial my head in to whatever these guys want, I support them. Is lightweight a tough weight cut for Paul Felder? Yes it is, but if Paul Felder wants to fight at lightweight, we’re fighting at lightweight and that’s what I do. I support my people.”

Do you think Sergio Pettis will
ever get a UFC flyweight title shot?
