A lot of eyes will be on Anthony Pettis at UFC 181, not only because he is one of the sport’s most exciting finishers, but because it will mark the first time he’s fought in well over a year.

Making the lightweight champ’s next appearance extra interesting is the fact that he’s taking on former Strikeforce champion Gilbert Melendez, who is another of the planet’s best 155’ers.

In advance of their December 6th fight, the UFC has released a preview segment, of Pettis being interview by the promotion’s Megan Olivi. It’s part of “The Exchange” series, which is available to Fight Pass members.

You can watch the teaser below. UFC 181 will be hosted by the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.
