Anthony Pettis Makes Surprising Call Out
Former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, has just taken to Instagram to make a surprising call out. ‘Showtime’, wants to move up to welterweight to take on Stephen Thompson.
The call out has come out of the blue. It wasn’t that long ago that Pettis moved down to the featherweight division for two fights. Although he missed weight in his second outing, which was supposed to be for the interim featherweight title against Max Holloway. Instead they fought at catchweight, with Holloway winning via TKO.
‘Showtime’ is coming off of a loss to Tony Ferguson at UFC 229, in what many believe was the best fight of 2018. ‘Wonder Boy’ is also coming off a loss, to Darren Till last May in Liverpool, England. A fight which took place at a catchweight after Till missed weight. Since then Thompson has been struggling to find a fight.
Perhaps Anthony Pettis is the guy to step up to the plate though. Although Thompson would have a significant weight advantage, it would be a fun one. And certainly one the fans would love to see.
