At the top of the card, former welterweight №1 title contender, Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson, tries to get back into the 170-pound title hunt by trading blows with ex-lightweight champion, Anthony “Showtime” Pettis. In the UFC Nashville co-main event, Curtis “Razor” Blaydes will attempt to shake off his recent loss at the expense of Justin “Big Pretty” Willis. In addition, Luis Pena — affectionately known as “Violent Bob Ross” — makes his featherweight return opposite Steven “Ocho” Peterson.
Stephen Thompson and Anthony Pettis are both technically sound fighters, and their meeting in the main event at UFC Fight Night 148 could be a technically precise matchup between two men who know how to use their feet. But make no mistake: The Thompson vs. Pettis fight, which you can live stream for free Saturday on ESPN+, could also be a quick-strike, quick-knockout kind of evening.

Though he’s a former lightweight champion, Pettis is the underdog because he’s moving up from 155 pounds to the 170-pound welterweight class to challenge Thompson. But Pettis (21–7) is coming off an exhilarating fight vs. Tony Ferguson, and though he lost by TKO after the second round because of a broken hand, his reputation was enhanced by that bloody bout.
Thompson, aka Wonderboy, is 36 years old, and he runs the risk of being rusty in the ring. But he went 58–0 as a kickboxer, and Pettis has only won two of his last seven fights. And, of course, there’s the size difference.

“The size difference I think is going to be the overwhelming factor in the fight,” MMA welterweight Jon Fitch said, via Bloody Elbow. “Anthony Pettis has fought at 145 [pounds]. It doesn’t seem like a smart move. How much time did he take to put on the 10 or 15 pounds needed to move up? He is fighting a bigger guy at a higher weight class. It doesn’t seem like it is going to end well for Pettis.”
Expect fireworks in this one and expect it to be contested almost exclusively on the feet.
