Showtime Pettis Enjoying Vegas With His Girlfriend

It’s good to be the champ as Anthony Pettis is in Las Vegas for fight week and TUF and has a night out with his girlfriend Lisette.  I would have preferred having him and Gilbert fight sooner rather than do the show but it just highlights how important of a franchise TUF is to the UFC.  At least this season will be somewhat different with the contestants being all females and...

EA Sports UFC Gameplay Series: ‘Pettis vs. Aldo’ Round 1

If you want to see Anthony Pettis fight anytime soon, this just may be  your best bet. The only negative I can come up with in regards to this EA Sports UFC sneak peak is that Bruce Buffer’s intro (almost 3 minutes) seems to be in slow motion. Buffer is better than this.
