    Both brothers are super talented but have been taking nothing but beatings lately. Doesnt seem like they are gonna get any better training with Duke. I think its time they move on from Duke or just retire from the sport. Thoughts?

    Leave Roufus, but they never will.

    Is Sergio talented? Only seen him a few times but he's looked dreadful.

    Anthony peaked around 2013 and Sergio isn't (and never was) "elite" (from a top UFC caliber perspective). A move would be little (if any) help for either of them at this point. Bellator/One would be a perfect fit for them now.

    They seem to be a little to stationary with their heads which means every straight shot lands... Sergio lacks the power to keep guys off him at BW but then again Font looked sharp

    To be fair, Tony is one of the best lightweights in the world (Anthony almost beat him)

    Font I think, will be very good as well

    Shelftime gets a pass from being a quitter, why?

    Diet Pettis is boring, like most FLW/BW

    Sergio is like 24 but he has never impressed me so far .
    There are still some good matchups for Anthony but since the RDA beating he has never been the same.

    Duke is certainly more capable than Hooker's corner that's for sure.

    Roufus is overrated, his coaching doesnt show any improvements on his fighters, Sergio still had terrible stand up, zero footwork, bad movement nothing he had nothing, the Pettis' need to leave that camp ASAP

    Technically he is very good but he is undersized as fck at BW
    He should go to One IMO, he really is a FLW

    Sergio is slow and has no power. Hes nothing like a prime Anthony.

    I think a move to One would be perfect for them. Both of their futures in the UFC seem on the way down, with minimal chance for a change of course. But they could both hang around the UFC for a long time if they want, given their fighting style and name value.

    Not sure bro. Anthony clearly has god- given talent but he is an oportunistic striker, he used a similar strategy to the one ortega does every single fight. He is losing the fight but somehow he finds the opening and puts an insane finish. Fighters saw that and not played inside pettis game. Sergio is a decent fighter but with not god-given talent. Decent boxing, decent kicks and decent wreslting. Top 10 but never top 5 talent, that s why he has losed all his high profile fights: cejudo, he CLEARLY LOSED VS BENAVIDEZ, FORMIGA AND NOW vs font.
