Josh Thomson’s Journey to a UFC Title-Shot

This week it was revealed UFC lightweight contender T.J. Grant had been once again forced to sit on the sidelines for health-related reasons and watch one of his peers challenge for divisional gold. This time around, it will be former Strikeforce champion Josh Thomson aiming for the title with Anthony Pettis laying claim to the gold rather than Benson Henderson. While the UFC on FOX 9 main event has definitely made headlines, there’s much more to Thomson’s crack at the belt than Grant’s misfortune. (Photos by USA Today Sports Images)

    very much looking forward to this fight. Josh is as tough a fighter as they come, and overall has a very solid skill set that poses many problems for Pettis. Would love to see The Punk walk out with the UFC gold.

    I kinda feel like Healy was a little more deserving of the shot, but I really don’t have a problem with Josh as a fill in either. I’m not really a fan of the Punks anymore since he came out as such a bigot, but since I don’t like Pettis either, I’ll watch this one just for the in-cage awesomeness without rooting for either guy.

    Not a fan of the punks but pettis will finish him in the first rnd. Bendo vs the punk sounds better to me.
