    at WEC 53 ...the showtime kick.
    i was watching at home and when he pulled that off, i almost fell out of my chair.







    probably the highlight of his career but then RDA murked him and he hasn't been the same since then.

    I was a big fan of him and went to my sisters house to watch this fight because our cable didn’t have the channel that wec came on. My sister never watched mma but watched this fight with me and was just as blown away as I was. Such an amazing feat to pull off in the middle of s title fight against one of the best in the world.

    This is sherdog, half of them were in year 9/10 and hadn't heard of mma.

    Pettis did not knock out Benson with that kick.

    Saw it live on TV.

    I still laugh when people think RDA broke Pettis and not USADA.

    maybe but can you really deny that it had to do with RDA beating the shit out of pettis and breaking his orbital (and i think spirit) during that fight?

    if pettis was ever on anything, he chose a good time to get off of it.
    • lost to RDA in march 2015
    • usada program was announced in june 2015, launched in july 2015
    • he was tested (according to the usada website) in Q4 of 2015
    • proceeds to lose next 2 fights against alvarez and barbosa.

    6 inches from my television at home (my parents' home for this one), screaming. That's how I'd describe most big mma moments, aside from the events I attended live.
