Twitter reacts to Stevie Ray defeating Anthony Pettis again

See how the MMA community reacted to Stevie Ray defeating Anthony Pettis yet again, this time as part of the PFL Playoffs

Lightning has struck twice for Stevie Ray. For the second time in a span of fewer than two months, he has beaten Anthony Pettis — and this time it puts him one step closer to the 2022 PFL lightweight championship.

Ray will now fight Olivier Aubin-Mercier following his win over Alex Martinez in the evening’s other PFL lightweight semifinal bout.

After Ray brought pressure early, Pettis found himself in trouble late in the opening round, taken down by Ray. Ray locked Pettis in a deep north-south choke that seemed like it could put the former UFC champion out. Pettis, to his credit, powered out and threw a small flurry before the end of the first.

Pettis, however, wasn’t the more aggressive one in the second round. In fact, Ray managed to get him down again and got to Pettis’s back, where he stayed until the round’s end.

Even with his back to the wall, Pettis didn’t seem to get anything going in the final round, with Ray briefly taking him down again. Pettis attempted a small flurry in the closing seconds, but it was for naught.
