Youngstown, Ohio's quickly filling Sept. 2 fight card, which takes place at the Covelli Center and airs on Versus has a new addition: a lightweight bout between Anthony Pettis (7-0 MMA, 1-0 WEC) and Alex Karalexis (10-4 MMA, 4-2 WEC).

WEC officials could not immediately confirm the bout, which was first reported by **********.com, but a source close to the negotiations confirmed to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that bout agreements have been signed.

This should be a good fight. I wonder if it will be on the maincard or undercard.

I don't know who I will go with yet. I may take Pettis.

Should be a good fight, I want to go with Karalexis, but I think I will probably pick Pettis based on that I think he has the better ground game of the two, if he chooses to stand he'll probably get KO'ed.
