Maybe Stephen Thompson and Anthony Pettis have a future as matchmakers.

Following a social media exchange that saw Pettis asking fans if he should step up to welterweight to fight Thompson, and Thompson welcoming Pettis to try, MMA Fighting’s Marc Raimondi confirmed with sources that the two have verbally agreed to fight at 170 pounds on March 23 at a UFC on ESPN+ show in Nashville, Tenn.

This makes staggeringly little sense. Hes a small lw that got bested in a kickboxing fight with boza.

Yeah this doesn’t make much sense. Pettis really lacks strength at 155 and at 170 that will be even more so.

I just don't see how Pettis @170 makes any sense other than the thought that the division is shallow in comparison to the shark tank that is 155. If that's the case, he's not wrong. One solid win over somebody like Wonderboy and he can argue for a title shot, especially with a finish or a lopsided beating. But like what has been said, he is too small for the division.
