    Assuming Tony's shot is diminished and Pettis doesn't have to worry about takedowns, leg kicks could be the key to victory here. Considering Tony's surgery after the cable incident, some might think it's a dirty tactic- but we all loved it when Reem was slamming kicks and knees into post-diverticulitis Brock's guts. Pettis should do whatever it takes imo.

    He should use every weapon in his arsenal against a top fighter like Tony...

    Tonys the type of dude that will put his bad knee out there to get kicked to set him up to land some shit of his own.

    If tony doesn’t want his knee targeted he should retire. But he’s a savage and that’s why he’s back fighting 4 months later.

    This fight is gonna be nuts, I can’t wait.

    Tony knew the stakes going in. A chance to sub in the main event. With a win he stands top contender. Pettis knows this is as big of a chance as he'll get at this point. It'd be foolish for him not to employ every tactic available regardless of how shameless it might be

    I'll be rooting for pettis in this one...I honestly think this fight could be alot closer than many think...mark my words..it's going to be competitive...I can't stand fergy. never could. if pettis fights the way he did in his last fight, and makes some more adjustments, I give him a decent shot of winning..I know that might sound crazy...

    He should just stick tight as we know who tony is really going to fight.

    Kicking is the only chance he has imo. Tony is better at everything else

    Do not coun`t out Pettis on the ground, we all know how dangerous tony is on the ground with threat of submisions,but Anthony Submited prime Benson, dunno what form was Gilbert Melendez but Pettis was the only guy who submited him in his 29 professional fights.

    Neither of those guys have a good bjj though, certainly not even close to tonys level.

    Id rather he use the “Jon Jones side-kick to the knee area” fighting Tony. Much much more effective in causing fight ending injury.

    Should you punch someone in the head after they get a concussion? Kind of a silly question to me.
