Anthony Pettis has made numerous highlight reels thanks to his dynamic striking game, but “Showtime” has also been known to flash some pretty nasty submission skills.
Case in point, when Pettis faced Gilbert Melendez in December, 2014, he defended the lightweight belt by tapping him out with a nicely executed guillotine choke. The win is the UFC’s latest “Submission of the Week”, and you can check it out below.
As far as what’s next for Pettis, the lightweight is scheduled to fight Eddie Alvarez at UFC Fight Night 81 on January 17th. It will mark the first time Pettis has fought since he lost the belt to Rafael dos Anjos in March.
