02:42 PM ET 02.01 | UFC lightweight Gray Maynard was set to face Joe Lauzon at UFC 155 in December, but was forced to withdraw due to injury. Now that he's healing and looking to get back into the mix, he's got his sights set on Anthony Pettis. The Duke Roufus-product is coming off of a win over Donald Cerrone at UFC on FOX 6 last week. "Pettis is the fight I would love to have," Maynard said. "He does some exciting things inside the cage and I think it would be a great challenge trying to solve that puzzle. I watched him beat Cerrone this weekend, but 'Cowboy's' style was the perfect matchup for Pettis to do what he does best. Cerrone comes forward with a straight up and down Muay Thai-style and Pettis was able to dictate space and get off on him. That's not the way I fight and I think I would present some difficult challenges for him." There is no specific timetable for Maynard's return.
