    Anthony Pettis vs. Josh Thomson headlines UFC on FOX 9



    It didn't take long for UFC on FOX 9 to get a new main event.

    Minutes after TJ Grant withdrew from the December 14th show citing lingering concussion symptoms, UFC officials announced that former Strikeforce champion Josh Thomson will serve as the first test for newly minted UFC lightweight titleholder Anthony Pettis.

    Thomson (20-5, 1 NC) is most remembered for his neck and neck trilogy against longtime Strikeforce champion Gilbert Melendez. At 34 years old, "The Punk" made a booming return to the UFC this April, becoming the first man to knock out Nate Diaz with a brutal second-round head kick.

    Pettis (17-2), of course, triumphed once again over WEC rival Benson Henderson in his most recent appearance, submitting the record-tying champion with a slick first-round armbar to steal away Henderson's belt at UFC 164.

    UFC on FOX 9 takes place December 14, 2013 at the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California. A bantamweight co-feature pitting Urijah Faber vs. Michael McDonald is thus far the only other confirmed bout for the card.

    Lol really Grant? Pretty sure you have enough time to recover before your camp begins... I mean this fight is in December. Whatever though. Grant's loss.

    Time to write my name on the Death Note.

    I feel bad for Josh. He comes out of the UFC with a headkick, comes back with a head kick and is now gonna get his head kicked again.

    Calm down bro. Watch Josh THompsonīs fights in Strikeforce, he was in the same level as Melendez. He won one fight, lose the other by unanimous decision and the las one by split decision.

    That will be one hell of a fight!

    I expect a stand-up war though, which is Pettis' world. First defense of many coming!

    There Is no pride In being a veteran of the Ufc anymore. I pray someone may take over to make what It Is to be a Champion or title challenger respectable once again.
    The fights themselves are one to watch yes but a guy with 1 win 4 months ago gets granted a chance at being World Champion? What the **** Is wrong with this bullshit. Why have guys working their ass off to put together wins or finish fights so they can move up In rank. This baffles me truly. I usually paid little mind to the banter towards how they run but now I can't respect anything more then the fight It's self. Such a joke.

    When one has to ask Why or what he has done to get this shot at Gold then It's turned Into a charade.
    Garbage.

    Who's really next in the line? LOL

    It's on FOX. Of course they'll put someone who will stand and bang with Pettis.

    UFC/MMA isn't a real sport after all. I thought people already knew this.

    Idk what the deal Is with Grant but I'm sure there Is no need to defend his title so soon.
    Rafael dos Anjos has 5 wins all tough bouts. I understand top ten Is crowed of a bunch of loses so It's hard to make an argument for anyone deserving but this Is dumb.

    I don't think Pettis vs dos Anjos would make millions of people tune in to FOX.

    Pettis vs Thomson has KotN and FotN written all over it.

    TJ Grant is making it big by just taking bribe money. lol

    Anyhoo, still a good fight. I was ready to see TJ KO Pettis tho. I was betting on the upset. IMO TJ is a bad match-up for Pettis stylistically.

    Stronger and bigger Johny Hendo and Kim Dong Hyun couldn't finish TJ.

    It's gonna be hard for Pettis.

    Dos Anjos should have received the title shot. Anyways, Pettis won't loose for the next ten fights.
