All in the family: Sergio Pettis makes octagon debut at UFC 167
It was only this past week that Sergio Pettis told MMAjunkie.com Radio that he believed he was "ready to step up to the next level." That next level came quickly. Pettis (8-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC), the younger brother of UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, has signed with the UFC and will make his debut with the promotion in November. Sources close to the fighter confirmed his signing to MMAJunkie.com following an initial report from Combate. The Combate report said Pettis will make his UFC debut at UFC 167 as a bantamweight, moving up from his current flyweight home. While MMAjunkie.com could not immediately confirm the change in division, Pettis told MMAjunkie.com Radio this past week that he was considering a move up to bantamweight.

Where Jones vs. Gustafsson ranks with the greatest fights ever
There's a reason some sayings get to be old sayings, and that's because they're probably true. So after my fifth viewing this week of the Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson fight, my conclusion is that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. When the fight ended, Joe Rogan said that this may be the greatest light heavyweight championship fight in UFC history. It was a great, dramatic fight, and when it was over, I thought Jones won rounds four and five and Gustafsson won round one. As far as the other two rounds, they were close enough to go either way. Upon multiple viewings, I'm even more torn about who won rounds two and three. Like in any close fight, nobody was robbed. In this case, whoever got the "W" should consider himself lucky...
