Anthony Pettis recently turned heads throughout MMA by asking fans whether they’d like to see him throw down with Stephen Thompson, and now his coach, Duke Roufus, has relayed he has the knowledge to help him win the contest.

Pettis recently turned to social media to gauge interest in him moving up to 170 to face “Wonderboy”. Then, Thompson himself let the former lightweight champ know that he’s on board with the proposed contest.

Well, more recently Roufus shared out these comments via Instagram:

“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
