    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

    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.

    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.

    I cant stand a pettis

    DREVM 6 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 6 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.

    • redskngod EL

      @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.
