In this episode "Rabble Rousin'" Rich Bergeron chats with Sergio Pettis, the brother of former WEC® Lightweight Champion Anthony “Showtime” Pettis. At only 17 years old, Sergio has been training with Roufusport in preparation for a professional career as a fighter. Now, he’ll take the next step of his career, as he’ll compete for the Canadian Fighting Championship (CFC) in September in his first pro bout. CFC President Giuseppe DeNatale exclaimed, “I’ve been hearing about the Pettis boys for several years now, and I know they’re both very, very talented. I’m excited and honored to have Sergio competing on our show, and I look forward to seeing him put on a great performance. It’s going to be a great night for fight fans.” About his first professional fight, Sergio had this to say: “It’s going to mean a lot. If I lose, it could determine my future in the sport. And if I do well, it could be a huge boost. So there’s a lot of pressure on me, but I’m going to have to pull through.” “Showtime” is also very excited about his brother’s pro debut: “It’s awesome. I set out in this sport to do that, to help pave the way for him. I think he’s going to have a very successful pro debut. And he’s going to make a big impact in this sport. The sport can be lucrative, and he’s going to take advantage of that. Sergio has a very, very bright future.” Anthony continued, “He’s my main training partner, and he’s only 17 years old. Whether it’s me, Erik Koch, or Danny Downes, Sergio is holding his own against all of us in training. He’s going to be a monster, and he’s going to do huge things in MMA.”
