Pettis began his MMA career 9-0 with just one fight going the distance before losing a split decision in 2009.
In 2010 Pettis won the WEC lightweight title with a unanimous decision victory over Benson Henderson. While winning the title was a big accomplishment that fight was best remembered for the amazing “Showtime Kick” off the cage that Pettis landed on Henderson.
