Pettis is looking lean and ready for tomorrow’s much anticipated rematch with Ben Henderson. Is it possible a local Milwaukee tanning salon may have decided to fork over the cash to sponsor Showtime???

Showtime shows up for some pre fight chores
Anthony Pettis’ father passed away back in 2003, when Showtime was just 16 years old. I’m sure he’s looking down from above and is very proud of his son.

Highlights: Pettis – Henderson Watch highlights of Anthony Pettis’ victory over Benson Henderson at UFC 164.
New champ! New champ! Talk about DOMINATION! Anthony Pettis strutted into his hometown arena and decimated Ben Henderson with body kicks until Ben was forced to take him down. From his guard, Pettis ended up submitting Bendo verbally with an armbar in one of the most lopsided fights of Bendo’s life. Holy ****! After, Pettis called out Jose Aldo, which I really want to see at 155...

Despite owning a perfect 7-0 UFC record, which included three straight title defenses, prior to entering Saturday’s rematch with Anthony Pettis, now-former lightweight king Benson Henderson (pictured) will have to wait his turn before sniffing another championship affair.
And if Pettis’ reign atop the 155-pound division is an extended one, Henderson’s wait will only be that...
UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson stopped by to talk with UFC Tonight's Ariel Helwani after the UFC 164 weigh in.
Bendo was his usual calm, stoic self but made an interesting remark about actually enjoying being behind enemy lines.
Apparently, he enjoys the feeling of being boo'd by an entire city of people that are cheering on his opponent, Anthony Pettis.
I predicted a Showtime victory, but I never saw it ending like this. It was a delayed reaction on my part when Henderson verbally tapped. Apparently, Pettis heard Benson’s arm ‘pop’ and then he heard Hendo say ‘tap-tap-tap’. I wish we could of seen a 5 round war, but Showtime deserved it. Give him Aldo next!!
