For the first time in almost two years, the UFC is going back into Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. The card will be headlined with a battle from the welterweight division as Stephen”Wonderboy” Thompson stands toe to toe with Anthony”Showtime” Pettis. Thompson is looking to get back in the win column for the first time since November 2017 and is now a -380 preferred to accomplish this, while Pettis is competing in welterweight for the first time in 11 years and is now a +290 underdog. I have a breakdown and select for each fight on the main card. Shark Bites Stephen Thompson only absorbs 2.51 significant strikes per minute. Stephen Thompson hasn’t dropped back-to-back conflicts. Anthony Pettis is 3-6 in his last nine fights. Stephen Thompson vs Anthony Pettis Thompson (-380) is on the worst stretch of his career, going 1-2-1 in his past four fights, such as a draw and a loss against Tyron Woodley in his two efforts to get the welterweight strap and also a unanimous-decision defeat to Darren Till last May. Prior to the recent rough patch, Wonderboy had gone 13-1, including successes over now-middleweight winner Robert Whittaker and current Bellator welterweight champ Rory MacDonald. The 36-year-old is.

Thompson fights long and is extremely fast, picking his enemies apart when in kicking range. Pettis (+290) has been on a win-one, lose-one series on his last seven fights and most recently lost to Tony Ferguson at UFC 229 when he broke his hand in the next round. Showtime is competing in the welterweight division for the first time beneath the UFC banner, having only one bout at the weight class back in 2008, when he made a first-round knockout over Gabe Walbridge.
