For the first time in almost two years, the UFC is going back to Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. The card will be headlined with a conflict in the welterweight division as Stephen”Wonderboy” Thompson stands toe to toe with Anthony”Showtime” Pettis. Thompson is seeking to get back in the win column for the first time since November 2017 and is now a -380 favorite to accomplish this, while Pettis is competing in welterweight for the very first time in 11 decades and is now a +290 underdog. I’ve a breakdown and pick for each fight on the primary card.

Stephen Thompson vs Anthony Pettis
Thompson (-380) is about the worst stretch of his career, going 1-2-1 in his past four fights, such as a draw and a loss against Tyron Woodley in his two attempts to get the welterweight strap and a unanimous-decision defeat to Darren Till last May. Prior to the recent rough patch, Wonderboy had gone 13-1, including victories over now-middleweight winner Robert Whittaker and present Bellator welterweight champ Rory MacDonald.
The 36-year-old is a kickboxer who puts an emphasis on stage fighting rather than going all out for the knockout. That having been said, if you pressure himhe has the power to put you to sleep because seven of his 14 professional wins have come by T/KO, though he has not earned a victory in that manner since 2016. Thompson struggles long and is extremely fast, picking his opponents apart when in kicking range.
Pettis (+290) was on a win-one, lose-one streak over his last seven fights and most recently lost to Tony Ferguson in UFC 229 when he broke his hand in the next round. Showtime is competing at the welterweight division for the first time under the UFC banner, having only 1 bout at the weight class back in 2008, when he made a first-round knockout over Gabe Walbridge.
