Anthony Pettis has a target date for a potential showdown against former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor. After teasing this fight, McGregor would give his reaction to Pettis’ latest win inside of the Octagon.

Pettis scored a second round knockout over title contender Stephen Thompson in the headliner of UFC Nashville. This event went down on Saturday night (March 24, 2019) at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee on ESPN+.

Following the fight, while talking with the media, the former UFC lightweight champion elaborated on his desire to fight McGregor, who doesn’t have his next fight lined up.

“That’s a fun fight,” he told MMA Junkie. “(He’s) another guy that I love his style, another guy that’s going to be a fun style to fight. If he wants to do it, let’s do it. I’m not afraid to fight anybody. If it’s not him, then the next guy in line.”

Pettis already has a date in mind which is the UFC 239 pay-per-view event that goes down on July 6th as part of International Fight week in Las Vegas, Nevada at the T-Mobile Arena. He also thinks this fight should be held at welterweight.

“We’re both natural, I think, there,” Pettis said. “If it’s not for a title, why cut?”

Conor McGregor has a unique reaction to former UFC bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw recently failing a drug test.

There is some history between these two former champions. The Ultimate Fighter: Team McGregor vs. Team Faber or TUF 22 aired back in 2015 with McGregor and Urijah Faber serving as coaches.

During this time, Dillashaw was still apart of Team Alpha Male. This is where McGregor called Dillashaw a “snake in the grass.” The term became popular once the bad blood between Dillashaw and Team Alpha Male (Faber and Cody Garbrandt) went public after Dillashaw departed from the gym. Since then, Dillashaw started using snakes as part of his branding and marketing.

On Wednesday, it was revealed that Dillashaw had been suspended for one year and fined $10,000 by the New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC) for failing a USADA drug test. The failed drug test came from his fight with Henry Cejudo.

Early Thursday morning, the former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion broke his silence about the failed drug test. He took to his official Twitter account where he wrote, “I called that little snake way back. I’m the new St. Patrick.”
