Stephen Thompson responds to callout from Anthony "Showtime" Pettis

UFC Fight Night 148: Thompson vs Pettis full fight card

Just one week after an eventful evening in London, the UFC returns this weekend to the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.

Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson will welcome Anthony “Showtime” Pettis to the Welterweight division, creating an exciting headline for the event. Both fighters currently coming off a loss, the two athletes will be committed to reverting back to winning ways.

Being absent for nearly a year, it may seem Thompson is at a disadvantage, however can Pettis deal with the size and style “Wonderboy” has to offer?

The co-main event comes in the heavyweight division between Curtis Blaydes versus Justin Willis who is currently undefeated in the UFC.

Willis is coming off an impressive win over Mark “Super Samoan” Hunt whilst Blaydes is hoping to bounce back from his previous loss to Francis Ngannou.

Here are the fights scheduled to take place this weekend at UFC Fight Night 148.
