Just-signed UFC fighter Sergio Pettis, brother of UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, said fighting in the UFC will be a dream come true.
“I am very excited to be a part of the UFC family, and also to join my brother in this great organization,” Sergio Pettis said. “This means the world to me. It doesn’t even seem like this is reality. I’ve dreamt of this moment since I was 14, and now I’m here. It’s just so unreal to me.”
Pettis, currently the Resurrection Fighting Alliance flyweight champion, will reportedly fight as a bantamweight in the UFC. He enters the UFC as the bantamweight division heats up with the rise of Renan Barao, who has served as interim champion in the two-year absence of bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz
Pettis (9-0) defeated James Porter with a first-round kimura In Milwaukee on Sept. 28.
