Things are starting to get heated between Josh Thomson and Anthony Pettis.

Thomson tweeted that he was hoping to get a fight against Pettis after speaking with UFC President Dana White, the two then agreed to fight via Twitter. Pettis would go on state in an interview with MMAFighting that he would fight Thomson “even though no one knows who he is.”

Seems as though Thomson took offence.

Pettis barking up the wrong tree. Thompson has the skill set that can beat Pettis most of the time.

Also I tired of Pettis getting hurt all the Damn time then thinking he always deserves a fucking title shot. I hope this fight happens and Thompson beats a hole in Pettis.

Thompson was on fire with that head kick, but I think Pettis is ahead in the kicking department, and can mostly stop the td's. Pettis ftw

I see this fight going one of two ways -

1) Someone gets lit up.

2) Someone controls it thru takedowns after psyching out the other guy into expecting a standup shootout.

Either way, it's a fight that should happen. I want Pettis to fight Aldo or Bendo beforehand. I think he's earned it (twice), and each fight is exciting on its own merits.

Thomson beats Pettis, Thomson beats Bendo, Melendez v. Thomson 4 happens for the title. Melendez wins a controversial SD. Melendez v. Thomson 5 happens. Majority draw. Melendez v. Thomson 6 happens.

We aren't that far away from a similar fate happening in the HW division, I think other divisions should follow suit
