Things are starting to get heated between Josh Thomson and Anthony Pettis.
Thomson tweeted that he was hoping to get a fight against Pettis after speaking with UFC President Dana White, the two then agreed to fight via Twitter. Pettis would go on state in an interview with MMAFighting that he would fight Thomson “even though no one knows who he is.”
Seems as though Thomson took offence:
Pettis didn’t back down though:
@THEREALPUNK come on man ok guess ima have to ESPN you!

To which Thomson replied:
@Showtimepettis careful, you won't see another title shot for years. Your own fans are telling you not to fight me. They're tryin to save u.
