The UFC Lightweight Spectacle Between Justin Gaethje And Anthony Pettis Might Happen Very Soon!
Anthony Pettis (21-8 MMA, 8-7 UFC) had one of the best matches in his whole career versus Tony Ferguson at the co-main event of UFC 229 on October 8, 2018. There were so many tremendous strikes on both sides. Both fighters were bleeding. Unfortunately, “Showtime” was unable to continue due to a broken hand at the end of the second round. Yet, there is a chance he could fight again soon!
Brett Okamoto from ESPN tweeted that UFC is looking to schedule the match between Justin Gaethje and Anthony Pettis. The fight is targeted for the beginning of 2019.
Per multiple sources, UFC looking to book Justin Gaethje vs. Anthony Pettis. It's not done and there's no date just yet, but that's the matchup currently in the works. Would be early next year.
