Is Anthony 'Showtime' Pettis vs. Stephen 'Wonderboy' Thompson a mismatch? One never knows what could happen. My sense is that Wonderboy is certainly the rightful favorite. He's the natural welterweight, will have a length advantage and is generally tough for any fighter. That said, are there reasons to think the former lightweight champion in Pettis might make this competitive and even win? I'd say there are. If you look at some of Wonderboy's victories over fighters like Jorge Masvidal and some of Pettis's losses like Rafael dos Anjos or Edson Barboza, some themes emerge that aren't necessarily part of this matchup. I dig into those details.
