Former lightweight winner Anthony “Showtime” Pettis left his welterweight debut on Saturday from the UFC Nashville main event and left a statement by rapping out fourth ranked Stephen “wonder boy ” Thompson. After the magnificent KO finish, fighters responded to the win via Twitter.
I’ll treat Lee first then I’ll watch you Pettis. Great win btw. ?????
Woooooowww that’s the beauty of the sport!! You NEVER know what’s going to HAPPEN! What a crazy struggle and KO #UFCNashiville

Much like and old Roy Jones Jr skipping hook
Some times Mma makes no sense. Ol young Hercules Tyron Woodley couldn’t KO Thompson at 10 rounds and Mighty Mouse Pettis comes in and do it. Wonderful fight #UFCnashville

I can’t believe that simply happened. I understand Pettis is monster from the rack up department, but I sensed Wonderboys size and striking would win it. This battle sport is crazy. #UFCNashville
