Sergio Pettis is no longer slated to compete at the upcoming UFC Minneapolis event, as he has pulled out of his scheduled fight.

The younger brother of former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis was set to fight Ricardo Ramos at the event. However, he has pulled out for an undisclosed reason, according to MMA Junkie. As of this writing, the UFC has yet to make an official announcement.

Pettis suffered back-to-back losses in his last outings against Jussier Formiga and Rob Font. If Ramos stays on the card, then he will look to rebound from the first promotional loss that he suffered via TKO to Said Nurmagomedov in his last bout at UFC on ESPN +2.
