In a somewhat odd day of videos being released across the interwebs, UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis submits his clip for public consumption. Having been out of action since his UFC 164 submission over then champion Benson Henderson, it looks like ‘Showtime’ is putting in some work at home.
Currently scheduled to face Gilbert Melendez after they get done filming The Ultimate Fighter 20, Pettis has been nursing multiple injuries since late 2013. Check out the video below, posted to the champion’s Instagram account, with the following tagline: “When your girl punches harder than the number 1 contender”.
Whether or not the straight right hand in the video did any lasting damage is yet to be seen, but one thing is for sure; I’ve seen smarter videos posted online. Although he outweighs his female friend by at least 80 pounds, it goes without saying that it would have been rather embarrassing if she had actually hurt him. That being said, it’s a pretty obvious jive at Henderson, thoughts?
