Former WEC Lightweight Champion Anthony Pettis entered the UFC famous for one the greatst Holy F------ S--- moments in mixed martial arts history, the Showtime Kick:
But when he debuted in the UFC at the TUF 13 Finale, Pettis found his flashy offense stuffed by the suffocating mat work of Clay Guida. Last night at UFC 136, In an if you can't beat em join em moment, Pettis employed a similar, successful tactic against Jeremy Stephens.
