A hundred years ago, Anthony Pettis was UFC lightweight champion and since “Showtime” spat his crown at Raphael dos Anjos in early 2015, the 33-year-old forward has competed as low as the featherweight and as high as the welterweight. .
Why stop there?
Pettis is now seeking a fight against former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, who, like “Showtime,” has not worn gold for several years. The player, “The Spider” never responded on Instagram and said, “Let’s do it. “
It was a difficult time for Pettis (23-10). Once considered one of the best pound-for-pound fighters, the Roufusport striker has not won consecutive contests in almost six years. Likewise, Silva (34-10, 1 NC) has only one victory dating from 2012, a controversial decision against Derek Brunson at UFC 218.
I don’t know how Pettis would make up for the size disadvantage, but I also thought the same thing when he dropped to 170 pounds before hovering Stephen Thompson, so I guess at that level anything is possible.
Pettis against Silva… all in favor?
