02:32 PM ET 07.10 | Top UFC contender Anthony Pettis has never been one to sit back and wait, so it comes as no surprise that he is rising to the challenge after being called out by former Strikeforce lightweight champion Josh Thomson. The two fighters have been chatting back and forth and they have teased at a potential bout at UFC 166, which takes place this October in Houston. Pettis was scheduled to face featherweight champion Jose Aldo next month, but a torn meniscus forced him out of the bout.

I'd like to see Pettis fight Cub Swanson next (assuming he beats Thomson)
