  • I'd fight Conor for 52 fuckin grandfather would fight him for that kind money... No shit Anthony the bum Pettis would wanna fight him for the money no shit Sherlock....

  • the moment when pettis said his coach filled the role of his dad. you know pettis had teary eyes, maybe just mine haha.hahahah hhnnnnngggggggggggggggggg....

  • Juggling Taxi 🚖 Graduations

  • Watching this again, and why did Megan need to state she was from New Jersey ?? Lmao what difference does it make where she’s from , lol man. Women..

  • Funny liberals never protest MMA over toxic masculinity.

  • They deleted the highlights wtf

  • You know Conor is a easy fight when literally everyone is constantly calling him out. Khabib is a superstar now and a undefeated champ and not a single guy has called him out.

  • mcgregor vs pettis would be epic lets be honest

  • Tony don't do it you will be hurt.

  • Twood vs Pettis lmao


  • Conor would kill this kid after seeing Wonderboy wore his ass out, Got a lucky superman punch to get it done.

  • Pettis isn’t even on mcgregor’s or Stephen Thomson’s level. He got lucky with that punch. A real mma fan will not really consider him on the level we’re talking about.

  • Well none of that is happening now.

  • Winning VIA lucky punch and now he is calling out Conor. Dude, Thompson was beating the hell out of you but unfortunately he was stupid enough to let his guards down. The fuck, you dont deserve a fight vs Connor. Btw, he just announced his "retirement". Lol

  • Something Tyrone couldn't do

  • I want to see connor get rag dolled by khabib again

  • Not gonna happen anymore since Connor retired

  • Well of course he would. I would get in the ring and fight CM for that kind of money. With swords.

  • It's all fun and games till someone gets punched in the mouth

  • Fuck google fuck the resistance lets fight🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳

  • So many fighters want to fight Conor, do they know that McGregor retired yet?

  • its not a sport punching people

  • love these 4

  • And? Does anyone honestly want to listen to Conor bleat trash for a month during the build up as he hawks his whiskey and drags the sport into the dumpster

  • Pettis -"I'll fight anybody",was he referring to Woodley? Would dana white do Woodley vs Pettis, to fight for a title shot?

  • I WANT TO FIGHT CONNER, catch phrase and on the back of the t shirt FOOK CONNER I HATE THE COONT

  • Michael Jackson is a pedophile 👌

  • *I wanna watch Jon Jones vs Brock Lesnar!!!*

  • If Pettis fights McGregor I don't care if that fight is on the moon I'm going to watch it

  • Anderson’s debut was 32 but he didn’t spend years before that cutting hard weight and getting hit by UFC fighters, he was fighting mostly bums. I think him debuting so late had a lot to do with his success. It’s not about age, it’s about miles and your chin.

  • Duke is such a great guy. Love that Pettis has only stayed with him no matter what goes on.

  • I cant stand a pettis

  • Hope he doesn’t do himself the disservice of jumping back and forth between weights. Every fighter that’s done that (except for champions) just gets lost in the mix instead of rising toward a title in one division. If he just wants big fights okay but if he wants a title he should pick.

  • Anyone who knows boxing could see that punch coming all night. Every right Pettis threw kept creeping closer and closer, I was just waiting for it. Had no idea it’d be such a hard shot though, that was wild.

  • Paid off

  • Everytime a fighter wins: I wanna fight connor

  • Every one wants to suck on Connors nutsack after they win a damn fight be careful what you wish for Mystic Mac will demolish your wore out ass

  • No way you mean to tell me another fighter wants to fight Mcgreggor thats crazy....what else is the sky blue today

  • Why is everybody calling out connor hes shite everybody looking for the easy dude

  • Everyone wanna fight connor obvi for the money duhhhhh

  • One lucky punch with a 1-5 in his last fights and he's calling out brock lesnar..... and he's a side talker, i hate people with those chins that aren't symmetrical. It's my ocd.

  • Wonderboy was picking your ass apart. gotta give props though. AMAZING finish. Askren v Pettis, Wonderboy vs Lawler....lets see em!

  • Conor always has a lot to say when "strikers" win. Still trying to see if they can get a striker in there with Conor for that easy win.. smh.

    • +William Lewis ., For the record, my comment was a jab at the ufc's need to resucitate Conor's career by ensuring the possibility of him KO'ing of a standup figher. Is that clear enough for ya, genius!!! It was sarcasm. Now go back to studying boxing history.

    • +William Lewis ., I been watching prize-fighter and the UFC when Royce G, put this shyt together. Where the hell were you then? Sitting on ya daddy's lap, watching Barney? Save it, david!!!

    • You clearly don’t understand the goal of prize fighting and why the UFC or any fight organization is created.

  • Takes a special fighter to admit when he's been broken by wrestlers.

  • Duke is so damn modest and humble; giving Pettis all the credit. He’s a brilliant coach. Creating the most underrated camp. Managing egos like Woodley, Sergio, Anthony, Felder all in one gym! Never any controversy. If Jones were kicked out of Jackson-Wink ONE day we would hear about it the same day.

  • Can we just officially say EVERYONE wants to fight Conor and make millions of dollars? Sick of people way bigger than Conor and way down in the rankings trying to call out the CHAMP CHAMP

  • It would be good for Conor to STFU already I feel like I'll go piece that bitch up if it would get him to quit harping

  • Do it for Milwaukee

  • U Wanna Go Night Night Nigga, It Almost Throw Hands Thursday! 💯👍✔

  • dude was getting destroyed and pulled the lucky punch of the decade. stop the nonsense hype.

  • He's wearing sunglasses indoors. Enough said.

  • Pettis has been looking good his past two fights. People forget Anthony was holding his own against Tony until his hand broke!

  • your washed up bitch! dont mistake LUCKY for Skill

  • lol tyron couldnt knock out wonderboy but pettis did and his is a 155er

  • Lol who wouldn't now? It's an easy win and for some reason Conor's still ranked in the top 5 so it makes you look good

  • Pettis said he wont fight jorge Masvidal

  • Pettis will destroy McGregor

  • Petits deserves a fight with the bitch conor. Hes earned his stripes, he deserves a huge paycheck.

  • Im from the 414. Bro you didnt get passed a first round without breaking your hand on one punch against an "ok" fighter!!! Stop it. McGregor would DESTROY you...

  • Please people tell me you see what i see is pettis missing a right hand index knuckle or im going crazy 0:57

  • Is Connor relevant? His time off and his loss by tap... I think his mouth is writing checks his arse can't cash. Maybe stick with whiskey and find some humility. Watch Rocky 5 maybe? I'm a fan, but you went soft mate.

  • Y’all needa have Ben train with duke that boy gots no hands

  • I'm gonna be mad if he fights McGregor

  • Connor*

  • He looks like bad bunny lol

  • Conor is not the fight. Khabib is the fight. The McGregor puzzle has been figured out. (I can't stand Conors mouth, it makes him a punk.)

  • Pettis would lose to connor he is an inferior striker.

  • Chuck liddel:id love to fight connor mcgregor

  • He didnt jump off the cage

  • He didnt jump off the cage

  • He didnt jump off the cage

  • Listen McGregor ain't fighting anyone he's overhyped overpaid overrated he's gonna cherrypick cerrone or some other guy

  • To be fair Pettis' last few losses have been to killers

  • Pettis & Duke have a Mike Tyson/Cus D'Amato thing going on.

  • I feel for Wonderboy but good to see Pettis get a win like that.

  • Sub to sub everyone Sub to sub

  • at this point asking any fighter if he would like to fight Conor McGregor is just irrelievent.

  • Fuck ppl have short memories everyone has once again started calling out McNuggets. I mean his only good for trying to get the light shined onto him since he can’t win a fight anymore

  • Anthony Pettis LOST TO FOLLOWING IN LAST 4 years..... Rafael dos Anjos, Eddie Alvarez, Edson Barboza, Dustin Poirier, Tony Ferguson. Conor McGregor DESTROYED all of them btw.

    • +John Doe that doesn't mean Conor "destroyed them" like you said. MMA math doesn't always work. They actually have an instagram page dedicated to people like you...check out "casualfightfan" on instagram. Its all comments like yours. I assume you are probably like 13 though so its understandable.

    • +Charles Charlemagne Eddie beat rda you tard RDA IS WASHED UP DONE didnt eddie get melted by conor k thx? bye

    • Lol, casual....Conor never fought RDA, Barboza, or Ferguson. You know Google exists, right?

  • This just in- “Ill fight Conor too for a payday”

  • Your all week bitches i can’t wait till the civil war part 2 kicks off demacrats are gonna get there asses beat down in accordance with the second amendment

  • take a ticket lol

  • I'd enjoy watchin McGregor beat the brakes off of Pettis, it'd be hilarious....

  • Conor who?

  • Gotta wait and see how Conor's horrendous rape case plays out, before people get too carried away. Considering the DNA, medical, and CCTV evidence in the hands of the Gardai, he may be going to pay for the lowlife, rancid behaviour. ( Was all through Dublin newspapers earlier this year, and recent word is that the young lass has made the statement, overcoming her fears due to death threats to herself and her family members.).... Time will tell, regarding how the case plays out, but, if convicted, he will be in a lot of danger as a sex offender in the Irish Prisons, and with a large price on his head, and a lot of hatred from high up in the Irish underworld.

    • Not a good position to be in, by any means. But, that's the least of what scumbag rapists deserve.

  • I like hearing duke

  • I was so wrong about this fight

  • Naw give him purple panties night... not the reds yet‼️

  • Duke is the fucking man - a true martial artist and coach of champions who puts his fighters first.

  • I wanna see connor vs spence

  • Why did they delete the full fight 😑 I was just starting to like ESPN for showing us the fights afterwards.

  • Pretty certain McGregor would dominate!

  • Pettis vs fergason was one of if not the most awesome fights ive ever seen in my 32 years here. It was literally mortal kombat status. crazy flips and trixie tricks

  • & what about the kid from your gym who died after being in a cage & you slapped him for slouching after 1st round

  • Pettis has had a little luck lately but he’ll get smoked again soon. Hasn’t been same since RDA fight!

  • Thought Pettis was stroking out when he struggled saying "traditional martial arts style"

  • How about we fight the brainwashed TV robots

  • Great relationship.

  • He's wearing shades to hide a wife beater shiner. 😂
