“How tall are you? So I can know in advance how far to step back when you fall down!” @muhammadali #muhammadali the --. One of my Favorite Pictures and Wins for @twooodley vs Wonder Boy because everyone said you couldn’t. I am grateful for my father teaching & coaching me Karate, Tae Kwon Do and old school PKA Full Contact Karate/American Kickboxing. I also competed in Sport Karate from age 6-18 years old along with numerous years of being a nationally ranked fighter. My 1st 4 years of Kickboxing Fights were under American Kickboxing Rules and my oldest brother Rick is one of the greatest Champions ever in that rule style. I am excited to test our Martial Arts Skill Sets @showtimepettis I got your back with the play book and experience ------ #martialartsislife --#TyronWoodley #AnthonyPettis #showtime #showtimepettis #teampettis #ufc #mma #mixedmartialarts #taekwondo #karate #sportkarate #kickboxing #muaythai #kyokushin #jiujitsu #bjj #wrestling #judo #sambo #pankration #fight #fighter #fighting #roufusport #positivevibes

There is no word when the potential Pettis versus Thompson bout will go down, as Pettis hasn’t fought since UFC 229 and Thompson hasn’t competed since UFC Fight Night Liverpool.
