Gregor Gillespie has repeatedly refused to call fighters out during his rise up the UFC’s ranks. But, the decorated wrestler has decided to change that stance and has called for a bout with Anthony Pettis.
Recently the 32-year-old, undefeated fighter shared out the video below, in which he challenged Pettis to fight at the UFC’s November 2nd card in New York City.

So for the last 6 fights everyone has been pressuring and annoying me to call someone out….I never wanted to but it looks like I am going to have to play the game…I want my first “call out” to count so…… @showtimepettis I think you are a great fighter, but you are in the wrong weight class, come back down to 155 and meet me at MSG on November 2. @arielhelwani @danawhite @showtimepettis @ufc @seanshelby
Gillespie (13-0) hasn’t fought since January when he stopped Yancy Medeiros in the second round. The New York fighter is currently ranked #11 in the UFC’s lightweight division.
