    Pettis won't win this one. That's for sure.

    They basically came together and said

    ‘Hey are you sick of fighting savages too?’
    ‘Hey are you on that big boy contract too?’
    ‘Want a pitter patter boring split decision fight?’

    Let’s talk some shit online

    Pettis is pretty fragile even when he cuts to a lower weight class. I don't know how he is going to hang at 170. He isn't particularly a big guy either.

    Tellin' y'all, that last fight fucked Pettis' head up! This is a poor career decision. RIP Anthony Pettis.

    Lol, Pettis taking a break from fighting savages by probably fighting the biggest challenge in his career, makes perfect sense.

    The fight only lasts as long as Steph wants it to last. If Pettis isn't finished within a round and a half it's because Thompson wants to put in some work and try new moves.

    Gutsy move by Pettis. I think it's an awful move. Maybe he knows something I don't, but I expect Wonderboy to easily outpoint him.

    What is wrong with Pettis? He went to FW because he was losing at LW, lost there and now he thinks going up in weight will help because Chiesa did it and he beat Chiesa?

    gotta give Pettis props for the balls it took to go to 170lbs but I don't see him making it past a round.
