    I’m 50/50 on this one.

    Carlos Ferreira is a cool guy. He owns a gym in the Dallas/ Fort Worth area. I’ve seen him a few times at BJJ tournaments in the area.

    Anyway he is 16-2 and has solid wins over the likes of Rustam Khabilov, Ramsey Nijum and Colton Smith.

    Anthony Pettis is obviously the biggest test of his career, outside of Dustin Poirer (who knocked Carlos out), but looking at Pettis’ record he hasn’t won two fights in a row since 2014.

    I’ve got a feeling

    After seeing what a slow plodding Nate Diaz did to Pettis, I'm not sure about him anymore.

    I'm going with Ferreira by a unanimous decision. Just my view.

    Pettis has a lot of miles on 'em so Ferreira is a logical pick.

    Pettis could always Showtime his way out of a loss at any point though

    I think Pettis is pretty much done and Ferreira is just starting to peak.

    I wouldn't count Pettis out entirely, but I expect Ferreira to win, possibly in dominant fashion.

    I am also 50-50, the Brazilian guy is cool, Pettis is a better striker but that's basically it, anything could happen on the ground.

    over the last 5 years Pettis has only lost to elite LW's top names like RDA, Alvarez, Barboza, Porier & Ferguson. I'm not sure that Ferreira at age 35 is quite on that level.

    Pettis is younger has more experience and is a former champ at 155. I think Pettis has enough left to get it done tonight and hopefully helps make this a legit nominee for FOTN

    Pettis just KO'd Wonderboy above his weight class, submitted Michael Chiesa, and showed he's willing to war with Tony Ferguson (regardless of losing).

    Carlos Diego Ferreira has not proven he's on that level from the fights I've seen.

    Diego is improving each fight. I think he has a chance to rank the top 10 soon.

    It's a good match up for sure, but I don't think this is a fight Pettis can win. Despite that hail mary KO of wonderboy, Pettis hasn't really shown a lot of power or finishing ability on the feet in the UFC. That being said, if he doesn't have the power to hurt Ferreira, he will be walked down and pressured all night. We saw how he looks getting pressured VS Diaz, Ferguson, Dustin, Max Holloway and I'm sure I'm missing some. His only hope is to Sub. Ferreira, which will also be extremely difficult because Ferreira is an amazing grappler. Pettis did tap out Charles Olivera though, so it's possible. Overall though I think we'll see Pettis getting stopped in the 2nd or 3rd round, by either Sub. or TKO.
