Pantoja: “Ready to prove myself against whoever the UFC chooses”

UFC flyweight title holder Alexandre Pantoja made it clear that he is open to a fight with any opponent.

Previously, the Brazilian repeatedly noted that he would return to the Octagon on May 4 at the UFC 301 tournament, which will take place in Rio de Janeiro.

“I’m ready to prove myself against whoever the UFC chooses. I have no problem being Apollo Creed giving newbies a chance to fight for the belt.

If the UFC wants to bring in champions from other leagues or even book a fight with Mokaev if he beats Perez in impressive fashion on Saturday, I'll be ready. The most important thing for me would be to defend this title in my city, Rio de Janeiro,” Sherdog quotes Pantoja.
