Following a frightening incident, where three cars were reportedly lit on fire outside of the home of Anthony Pettis, the latter and his brother Sergio have released statements.
According to a report from Milwaukee’s FOX 6 Now, police “believe an unknown suspect used an accelerant to ignite two of the vehicles which forced flames to spread to a third vehicle sitting in Pettis’ driveway.”
Since then Anthony and Sergio have posted the statements below on Instagram.
I am a fighter. I won't be defeated by this. I am also extremely confused and saddened by the events that occurred. I am grateful that no one was harmed by this cowardly act. My life as well as my loved ones were put in danger. I cannot understand why someone would want to hurt myself or my family. I will do everything I can to ensure that we find out who committed this crime and that they are prosecuted to the full extent of the law. I'm constantly defending my choice to stay in this city. Regardless of the crimes that have been occurring lately, this is my home. I really hope the city that I rep has my back on this one and helps by reporting anything they know about this. #teampettis #250k
The cars might be broke but we will never be broken. Not sure why or who did this to us very confused on that matter. We truly love Milwaukee and everybody that comes from our city. We all came from the same roots the same daily struggles. It's an honor representing all of us, it's more than just fighting for us. We believe martial arts can change lives. We go out there and express ourselves in a different form of art hoping we that we can inspire. We might come from a violent sport but we are peaceful people. So let's end the violence in our city and come together. The more we rise each other up the more we can all succeed and grow . #TeamPettis #StaySmilingNoMatterWhat
