Sergio Pettis wins - 181
Sergio Pettis is returning to the 125 pound weight-class after going 3-1 as a UFC bantamweight.

The younger brother of the UFC lightweight champion will face Ryan Benoit at UFC 185.

UFC officials announced the news on Tuesday.

Sergio once fought as a flyweight outside the UFC, so the move is not entirely unexpected.

With the addition, UFC 185 now includes:

Anthony Pettis vs. Rafael dos Anjos
Johny Hendricks vs. Matt Brown
Roy Nelson vs. Alistair Overeem
Chris Cariaso vs. Henry Cejudo
Ryan Benoit vs. Sergio Pettis
