‘Showtime’ strikes again.
After struggling with Stephen Thompson’s striking for almost two entire rounds, Anthony Pettis finished the fight with one precise Superman punch that knocked ‘Wonderboy’ out cold in the final seconds of the second round at UFC Nashville. On Twitter, pro fighters enjoyed the fight.
IMO. After being in there with Wonderboy before and being a taekwondo stylist like pettis I think Pettis will have more success if he tries to use his fancy stuff instead of trying to box and bang with Thompson #UFCNashvile #UFC— Chris Clements (@menaceclements) March 24, 2019

Wow Pettis essentially getting out classed and then out of nowhere lands a Superman punch— Brian Kelleher (@brianboom135) March 24, 2019
I’ll take care of Lee first then I’ll see you Pettis. Great win btw.— Rafael dos Anjos (@RdosAnjosMMA) March 24, 2019
1 mistake is all it takes in there— The Diamond (@DustinPoirier) March 24, 2019
Sometimes Mma makes no sense . Ol young Hercules Tyron Woodley couldn’t KO Thompson in 10 rounds and Mighty Mouse Pettis comes in and get it done . Awesome fight #UFCnashville— Derek Brunson (@DerekBrunson) March 24, 2019
I can’t believe that just happened. I know Pettis is beast in the stand up department, but I felt Wonderboys size and striking would win it. This fight game is crazy. #UFCNashville— Aljamain Sterling (@FunkMaster_UFC) March 24, 2019
