Anthony Pettis Fight Vs. Conor McGregor … Is Dream Matchup For Fans
4/1/2019 3:21 PM PDT
We talked to Pettis — days after moving up to the welterweight division and starching Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson — about his next move … and he says Conor makes a whole lotta sense.
There’s just 1 problem … Pettis says if Conor’s actually mulling quitting, fighting him is a very bad idea.
“Man, I wouldn’t talk him outta retirement. If someone wants to retire, don’t get in the Octagon with me,” Pettis tells TMZ Sports …
“It’s gonna be a bad one. I’m too hungry right now. I’m too motivated. I just knocked out the #3 in the world at 170 pounds. If you’re trying to retire, don’t entertain a fight with me.”
But, if Conor’s just using the threat of retirement as a negotiating ploy, Pettis is all the way down to fight … and he thinks it’d be a helluva entertaining match up.
“I go for the kill. He goes for the kill. We both have a flashy striking style with a great ground game.”.
Ya hear this, Dana?
