Previewing UFC Fight Night: Thompson vs. Pettis

BIG fight tomorrow night in the great city of Nashville between Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson vs Anthony “Showtime” Pettis. This is a huge huge fight for both men. Both of these savages NEED this win in this welterweight bout. Im a huge fan of both of these humble warriors. Im pretty torn on who to pick for this fight. Thompson is coming off loss to Darren Till (still crying) almost a year ago and has only 1 win in his last 4 fights (2 of those coming against the welterweight champ tho). Showtime Pettis is moving up to welterweight for the first time since 2008 and is coming off a loss in one of the better fights in recent memory against Tony Ferguson. So, time to predict.

Imagine having that happen to you? Lol. That was Showtime Pettis back in the day, i remember watching this over and over again and it was replayed on sportscenter all day. Good times. Moving on…this fight is going to involve lots of distance gauging because both of these fellas are going to throw kicks kicks and more kicks. It will be super intense. I ultimately believe Wonderboy is going to pull this off simply due to his superior length and size against Showtime. If this is the case, expect Thompson to win this by 4th round TKO. Thompson will insert himself back into a very very crowded welterweight title contender conversation. I, for one, will be elated to see this. Hopefully i can win some money this time. Lets go.
