Anthony Pettis Wants Short-Notice Fight With Conor McGregor: “I’m Down To Throw Down!”

It looks like Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone isn’t the only top star willing to fill-in on short notice to fight UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor.

Former UFC Lightweight Champion Anthony “Showtime” Pettis expressed interest in taking the fight against McGregor shortly after the news broke regarding Rafael dos Anjos pulling out of the fight with a broken foot.

Roufusport head coach Duke Roufus tweeted UFC President Dana White shortly after the story came out on Tuesday morning, writing, “[Anthony Pettis] said put me in coach.”

Soon after the initial tweet from Roufus, Pettis replied, “I’m down to throw down!!!”

UFC 196 takes place on March 5, 2016 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
