It’s been a rough couple of months for former UFC lightweight champion Anthony ‘Showtime’ Pettis. Last month, Pettis’ Milwaukee home was targeted as several of his cars were damaged and set on fire in his driveway. Fortunately, while the cars were destroyed, no one was injured by the fire.
Shortly after the incident took place, Anthony Pettis released a statement on the matter, saying:
“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.”
Unfortunately, Pettis has once again been targeted, as footage from a surveillance camera installed outside of Pettis’ house shows several people walking up the former champ’s driveway, checking to see if his cars are unlocked. Unfortunately for ‘Showtime’, his Range Rover was unlocked, and the suspects quickly hop in the car to burglarize it.
Pettis is reportedly currently offering up a reward to anyone who provides information on the matter which leads to the arrest of those involved in this crime.
Pettis is of course currently gearing up for his UFC 206 scrap with Max Holloway, which was recently promoted to the main event of UFC 206, and will be for the interim featherweight championship.
