By FCF Staff
It’s being reported by ESPN’s Brett Okamoto that the UFC is hoping to book Pettis – Gaethje for early 2019. No date has been determined and the fight is reportedly not signed.
Gaethje (19-2) ended a two-fight losing skid in August by knocking out James Vick in the opening round.
Pettis (21-8) is coming off a TKO loss (via corner stoppage) to Tony Ferguson in October, after he submitted Michael Chiesa this past July. Pettis is 2-3 in his last 5 bouts.
