UFC fighter Anthony Pettis was set to square off against featherweight champ Jose Aldo on August 3 before injuring his meniscus and subsequently pulling out of the planned pairing. However, based on his belief he will be ready to go a few weeks later than initially expected, Pettis decided to put his name in the discussion for a title-fight with lightweight king Benson Henderson at UFC 164.

However, Henderson has already been booked for a bout with T.J. Grant at the August 31 event. Though “Bendo” has already started preparing for Grant, he recently told MMAFighting he’s fine with fighting Pettis too if the UFC decides to go that direction.

“As I’ve always said, I don’t care who I fight or when I fight them. I’m going to do what I always do, which is continue training to be the best in the world. I’ll just fight and let the others worry about talking their way into fights.”
