Stephen Thompson being the southern gentleman that he is didn’t really have much bad to say concerning his UFC about ESPN+ 6 headlining opponent Anthony Pettis, but admittedthey are fighting for the ninja belt on Saturday in Nashville, Tenn..
He knows what is at stake, however.
Together with Kamaru Usman carrying the welterweight belt from tyronwoodley recently, it cleared the way for a quicker way to another title taken for Thompson, but he’s must get beyond Pettis first.
Tune in Saturday, March 2-3, for full UFC on ESPN+ 6: Thompson vs. Pettis live consequences on MMAWeekly.com. The first bout is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. ET / two p.m. PT.
