Kurt Pellegrino would rather do things the hard way in his next fight.
He wants to go the distance with Gleison Tibau at UFC 128 - and not because he wants to play it safe. He wants a knockdown, drag-out brawl that wins a "Fight of the Night" bonus check. He wants to be very, very sore the next day.
Recovered from a badly torn ACL, he's ready to throw everything he can at his knee.
