Josh Thomson's message to UFC officials is clear: Give me a fight with Anthony Pettis, and then give me the UFC lightweight title shot I've been awaiting for the past decade.Link
Very interesting match up I wouldn't mind seeing these two clash
I think this is a good one, and that Thomson deserves it after his performance against Nate. They were impressive no doubt, but I dunno if wins over Lauzon and Cerrone justify the shot at the strap to be honest.
I like it. Previously Pettis should have had a title shot but he also shouldn't be jumping divisions. I love watching him fight but part of me will laugh if he loses to THompson and misses another title shot. This is a great match up though. Winner definitely goes for a title shot.
Bensen or tj will defend the belt in Dec on fox card against Pettis. I think josh fights in Sept or Oct
Maybe against Jim miller or khalib
I think this fight should happen, both are on the cusp of LW title shots, get a definite contender up there.
Sounds great to me, and props to Thomson for stepping up and calling out Pettis.
It's definitely better than another Thomson/Melendez rematch.
Good idea Josh. That'd be a great fight, but I gotta think Pettis is getting to that level where is striking would just be too much for Thompson.
anything to derail Pettis is good in my books
