Anthony Pettis stops smoking weed.
“I think that the UFC is a great business. I’ve been part of this company for 12 years almost now. I’ve seen every stage of this company and I’ve been on the top of the top when I was getting on Wheaties box and was world champion. I’ve been fighting for my job when I had a three-loss losing streak from Rafael dos Anjos to Eddie Alvarez to Edson Barboza. I’ve been on the chopping block for a long time where if I let that mindset play in, there’s no coming back from that because that’s what you focused on. It’s a blessing for me to have this mindset right now with all the news about cuts and going to different promotions. I don’t feel pressure for that right now.”

One thing Pettis has changed is his use of alcohol and cannabis; the latter is a recent indulgence, the former one of longstanding. The fighter said that publicly acknowledging his decision to stay sober is a form of holding himself accountable.

“Obviously, alcohol is everywhere and for me, that’s one of my vices,” he said. “When I lost my dad, going all the way back to that, that’s when it was introduced to me…dealing with my pain and sorrow with alcohol or some kind of substance.”

“I’m not saying marijuana is bad, or saying yes or no to that but for me, where my journey is, it takes me out of being present. At this part of my life, I don’t need that stuff.”
