Anthony Pettis talks history with Nate Diaz | UFC 241 | ESPN MMA

  • Published on Aug 15, 2019
  • Anthony Pettis chats with ESPN MMA’s Brett Okamoto about how his old swagger is back ahead of fighting Nate Diaz at UFC 241 and how that is combined with his knockout of Stephen Thompson and his history with Diaz and his crew. Pettis says he hasn’t been in a fight this personal since taking on Donald Cerrone and that the buzz on this bout is comparable to a title fight.

    Dear friends,
    Guard Your Heart & Your Eyes
    Jesus Christ explained to us the importance of our eyes, whatever you focus on, that very thing will go directly into your mind, then to your heart and eventually it will seed into your soul. Jesus Christ explained to us that “The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!” Mathew 6:22-23
    Jesus Christ was not concerned with superficial appearances but rather dealing with the truth inside in each one of us. He explained that “don’t you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body? But the things that come out of a person’s mouth come from the heart, and these defile them. For out of the heart come evil thoughts-murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. These are what defile a person; but eating with unwashed hands does not defile them.” Mathew 15:17-20
    This life that we have here on earth is only temporary, in fact we don’t even know when we will leave this earth. Yet most people live their lives for today and for today only, disregarding their spiritual destiny, what truly matters the most. Jesus said, "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Mathew 6:25-26 “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.” Mathew 6:33.
    So then, we may ask, what is God’s will for our lives? Jesus answered, "The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent." John 6:29. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16.
    - Carlos

    Pettis is the better fighter but damn Diaz got a huge melon head and will probably employ his Homer Simpson technique like he did against Conor.
