ehhh look man Pettis is good, but he's had some really bad matchups. His record isn't really indicative of how good he is.

Good KO by Pettis. When fights a person like Usman or woodley, he will get pushed around.

Given the nature of the finishing blow, I decided that Anthony Pettis should have a body that reflects his Superman punch... Thus, I bestow upon him Steven Peterson's.
