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.

Well none of that is happening now.

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

If Pettis fights McGregor I don't care if that fight is on the moon I'm going to watch it

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.
DREVM Month ago
Duke is such a great guy. Love that Pettis has only stayed with him no matter what goes on.
indo Month ago
I cant stand a pettis
DREVM Month 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 Month 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.

You clearly don’t understand the goal of prize fighting and why the UFC or any fight organization is created.

Takes a special fighter to admit when he's been broken by wrestlers.

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.
D D Month ago
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

Is Connor relevant? His time off and his loss by tap... I think his mouth is writing checks his arse can't cash. Maybe stick with whiskey and find some humility. Watch Rocky 5 maybe? I'm a fan, but you went soft mate.

Anthony Pettis LOST TO FOLLOWING IN LAST 4 years..... Rafael dos Anjos, Eddie Alvarez, Edson Barboza, Dustin Poirier, Tony Ferguson. Conor McGregor DESTROYED all of them btw.
Charles Charlemagne
+John Doe that doesn't mean Conor "destroyed them" like you said. MMA math doesn't always work. They actually have an instagram page dedicated to people like you...check out "casualfightfan" on instagram. Its all comments like yours. I assume you are probably like 13 though so its understandable.

Sean O'Brieon
Sean O'Brieon Month ago
Gotta wait and see how Conor's horrendous rape case plays out, before people get too carried away. Considering the DNA, medical, and CCTV evidence in the hands of the Gardai, he may be going to pay for the lowlife, rancid behaviour. ( Was all through Dublin newspapers earlier this year, and recent word is that the young lass has made the statement, overcoming her fears due to death threats to herself and her family members.).... Time will tell, regarding how the case plays out, but, if convicted, he will be in a lot of danger as a sex offender in the Irish Prisons, and with a large price on his head, and a lot of hatred from high up in the Irish underworld.

Not a good position to be in, by any means. But, that's the least of what scumbag rapists deserve.
