Following the news that Anthony Pettis will no longer compete at UFC on FOX 16, it didn’t take long for two of the former champ’s rivals to weigh-in on the situation.

Pettis has traded verbal shots with Nate Diaz over the years, and the latter has criticized the lightweight for dropping out of fights due to injury. Pettis has fought only twice now since 2013.

After it was revealed that Pettis will no longer fight Myles Jury on July 25th due to an elbow injury, Diaz tweeted:

Diaz’s tweet included a recent comment Pettis sent Nurmagomedov’s way, as the latter has also taken plenty of verbal jabs at “Showtime” in recent months.

But, in this instance, Nurmagomedov evidently elected to take a different approach.

Edson Barboza will face Jury at UFC on FOX 16, which will be hosted by Chicago’s United Center.
