Sergio Pettis will make his octagon debut against Vaughan Lee in UFC 167: St. Pierre vs. Hendricks

Sergio Pettis, the younger brother of UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis will make his octagon debut next month. He will face off against Vaughan Lee as part of the card of UFC 167: St. Pierre vs. Hendricks.

The 20 year old Milwaukee native branded as “The Phenom” is earlier regarded as a flyweight prospect. However, he will campaign as a bantamweight in the UFC. He is unbeaten in his 9 professional fights with only 3 of those fights going the distance. In his latest outing, Pettis submitted James Porter with a kimura in the 2:33 mark of the first round.

His opponent, Vaughan Lee (13-9-1, 3-2 in UFC) has split his last 2 fights. He beat Motonobu Tezuka via unanimous decision last February but was submitted by Raphael Assuncao in his succeeding fight.

UFC 167 will take place at MGM Grand Garden Arena on November 14. The event is headlined by a welterweight title fight between Georges St-Pierre and Johny Hendricks. It will also feature Chael Sonnen and former light heavyweight champ Rashad Evans in the co-main event as well as a possible “loser leaves town” battle between Alistair Overeem and Frank Mir.
