In one of the more anticipated bouts of UFC on FOX 21 tonight (Sat., Aug. 27, 2016), which took place inside Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Lightweight champion Anthony Pettis made a successful Featherweight debut opposite 145-pound strangler Charles Oliveira. After two solid rounds of close-knit action, it was “Showtime” who sunk in a perfectly-timed guillotine choke in the third and final round to tap “do Bronx.”

With his back against the proverbial wall, Pettis delivered in dramatic fashion. It just goes to show how diverse his game is considering he’s a super-talented striker who can submit some of the best grappling specialists in the game.
