UFC 181 Prelims Could Provide Glimpse Into Next Generation

ufc 181

The prelims for UFC 181 this Saturday night will center around Urijah Faber.

But, the rest of the fights are ones to keep an eye on as they could provide an early glimpse into future superstars.

Sergio Pettis is the younger brother of current lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, Corey Anderson and Eddie Gordon are recent winners of The Ultimate Fighter, and Josh Samman was a strong contender on another previous season of TUF.

Here’s a little more in-depth look into those four, who will all be in action on either UFC Fight Pass or FOX Sports 1:

Sergio Pettis

The 21-year-old didn’t let a loss get him sidetracked in his second UFC appearance, as he bounced back nicely with a decision win over Yaotzin Meza earlier this year.

After debuting with a victory vs. Will Campuzano, Pettis was submitted by Alex Caceres. The loss was the first of his career, but he showed what he gained from the defeat vs. Meza.

Obviously, the genes are good with Pettis, and he has a strong team at Roufusport to help guide him on the path.
