Stephen Thompson Responds To Anthony Pettis’ Call Out
Stephen Thompson has responded to Anthony Pettis’ Instagram post yesterday, in which the former lightweight champion called him out.
In his own in Instagram post, ‘Wonderboy’ responded by saying “let’s do it!”. Stephen Thompson has been looking for someone to fight for several months now. He was hoping to land the fight with Robbie Lawler but UFC new signing Ben Askren got that match up.
‘Showtime’, who is coming off of one of the best fights of 2018, a bloody loss to Tony Ferguson, has never fought at welterweight before.
As Thompson points out, it would be one ‘for the fans’, with both having ‘highlight reels’ but there are good match ups for both men within their own divisions. Thompson vs Santiago Ponzinibbio and Pettis vs Dan Hooker would be especially fun ones!
