UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis earned his brown belt in Jiu-Jitsu earlier this week. This comes on the heels of ‘Showtime’ submitting Cesar Gracie black belt Gilbert Melendez in their UFC 181 bout in December.

Despite being known for his highlight reel knockouts, Anthony Pettis has 8 submission victories in 18 professional MMA bouts, and 7 KO wins.

Congratulations Showtime!
