Anthony Pettis Says no one knows who Josh Thomson is.

Quote:
If you thought Anthony Pettis was going to sit around for the winner of
Ben Henderson
vs. T.J. Grant, think again.

Pettis and Josh Thomson have been teasing an upcoming fight on Twitter, and Pettis told
MMAFighting.com on Wednesday that he's on board with the idea.

"Thomson called me out," he said. "I'm never afraid to fight anyone, and I'm tired of waiting. If I'm supposed to be the best, then why not beat him in October? [It will] set me up for a title shot late this year or early next [year].

"Only bad thing is no one really knows who he is."

Thomson told Bleacher Report on Tuesday he asked the UFC for a fight against Pettis.

Pettis said the UFC has yet to officially offer him the fight against Thomson, but he added, "I don't see them not doing it." Both fighters seem to be targeting UFC 166 in Houston on
Oct. 19, which will be headlined by Cain Velasquez vs. Junior dos Santos 3.

As for Pettis' health, "Showtime" said he returned to training on Tuesday and didn't feel any pain in his injured knee. He plans on sparring later Wednesday.


Pettis was scheduled to fight Jose Aldo for the UFC featherweight title on Aug. 3, but he
was forced to withdraw from the fight due to a torn meniscus.

Not sure if this was posted or not.

But I find it stupid for Pettis to say that haha. I dislike this guy the more he talks.

Thoughts on the fight if it goes through

Well, he's not wrong. There's not a lot to win for Pettis in this fight and a lot to lose.

You may not like it, but outside of MMA circles he is exactly right. Everyone knows Pettis from his highlight reel, no one knows Josh Thomson. There is, publicity wise, very little Pettis gains from beating Thomson other than the possibility of something else to add to the highlight reel. His own Sean Salmon if you will.

Well it's true. Josh Thompson isn't really known in casual circles. Not that Pettis is a household name. (He is just that guy that did that crazy kick).

How about he shuts up, stays healthy, and fights whoever they give him?

Not sure why Pettis or his fans think he is entitled to call out title shots at 145, or choose opponents, or try to tell TJ Grant to let him in line.

Pettis is a jackass.

Pettis is just a dumbfuuck. Thompson was in the UFC when Pettis was still in high school. He was ranked long before Pettis. MMA fans know who Thompson is. They have known who he was years before Pettis ever popped up.
Pettis thinking he is above Thompson is hilarious. Like Thompson hasn't put the work in. I hope Josh teaches Pettis a lesson. I'm becoming less and less of a Pettis fan as time goes on. He has a great style to watch but he seems like a major douche. If that fight happened I think Josh probably takes it.

Josh is underrated or was going into the Diaz fight but he's not better than Pettis. No one is at 155.

I like watching Pettis fight, he's undoubtedly one of the top guys at 155 and 145, but he's a bit of a dick really isn't he. Goes down in weight and demands a title shot, gets injured so the fight gets scrapped, and then acts like a dick towards TJ Grant saying that TJ shouldn't be fighting Benson and it should be his spot; and now this. Maybe concentrate on staying fit enough to fight more than once a year, and then start demanding fights, until then, STFU.

He is that guy who did that thing that one time.

Pettis seems like he is kind of delusional about his own level of fame. Being on sportcenter once doesn't mean anyone knows who he is if you say his name or that they care about him.

I like his chances against Josh but it will probably be competitive.
