When former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis moved up to welterweight and was matched up against top contender and striking wizard Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson, people did not expect Pettis to fare too well. However, he shocked the world and proved everyone wrong by knocking out Thompson in the second round by a flying off the cage, superman punch. Almost everyone has since been in awe of the finish, though some like UFC welterweight Santiago Ponzinibbio believe it was just luck. The Argentine recently took to social media to post a challenge and call out for Pettis.
Ponzinibbio posted a picture on his Instagram account and captioned it that he won’t let Pettis jump over him towards a title challenge. He then told Pettis to ‘come get this beating’ and that he will not get lucky like he did last time. Here’s what he had to say:
There’s no way I’m going to allow you to be ahead of me, Come get this beating, you won’t get lucky like last time.
