If Conor actually wants to be a serious contender he wouldve already booked a fight with Tony. If Conor lost to the champ and wants nothing to do with the next best guy on a 12 fight win streak, then he isn’t worth mentioning in a serious conversation. Let him have the rare one off fight with some jerk off like Nate Diaz

You know Conor is a easy fight when literally everyone is constantly calling him out. Khabib is a superstar now and a undefeated champ and not a single guy has called him out.

Pettis isn’t even on mcgregor’s or Stephen Thomson’s level. He got lucky with that punch. A real mma fan will not really consider him on the level we’re talking about.

A real MMA fan won't say that was a lucky punch.

Winning VIA lucky punch and now he is calling out Conor. Dude, Thompson was beating the hell out of you but unfortunately he was stupid enough to let his guards down. The fuck, you dont deserve a fight vs Connor. Btw, he just announced his "retirement". Lol

Pettis -"I'll fight anybody",was he referring to Woodley? Would dana white do Woodley vs Pettis, to fight for a title shot?

Anderson’s debut was 32 but he didn’t spend years before that cutting hard weight and getting hit by UFC fighters, he was fighting mostly bums. I think him debuting so late had a lot to do with his success. It’s not about age, it’s about miles and your chin.

Duke is such a great guy. Love that Pettis has only stayed with him no matter what goes on.

DREVM 3 months ago
Hope he doesn’t do himself the disservice of jumping back and forth between weights. Every fighter that’s done that (except for champions) just gets lost in the mix instead of rising toward a title in one division. If he just wants big fights okay but if he wants a title he should pick.
DREVM 3 months ago
Anyone who knows boxing could see that punch coming all night. Every right Pettis threw kept creeping closer and closer, I was just waiting for it. Had no idea it’d be such a hard shot though, that was wild.

Conor always has a lot to say when "strikers" win. Still trying to see if they can get a striker in there with Conor for that easy win.. smh.

@William Lewis ., For the record, my comment was a jab at the ufc's need to resucitate Conor's career by ensuring the possibility of him KO'ing of a standup figher. Is that clear enough for ya, genius!!! It was sarcasm. Now go back to studying boxing history.

Duke is so damn modest and humble; giving Pettis all the credit. He’s a brilliant coach. Creating the most underrated camp. Managing egos like Woodley, Sergio, Anthony, Felder all in one gym! Never any controversy. If Jones were kicked out of Jackson-Wink ONE day we would hear about it the same day.

Can we just officially say EVERYONE wants to fight Conor and make millions of dollars? Sick of people way bigger than Conor and way down in the rankings trying to call out the CHAMP CHAMP
