Anthony 'Showtime' Pettis is in the Matrix

Anthony 'Showtime' Pettis made history last night winning the WEC Lightweight title and his entry into the UFC.

Pettis who I first learned about watching a show called, 'The World of Jenks' on MTV. He is a young fighter from Wisconson, who has been through a lot but is still very humble and doesn't let where he came from change the way he is.

Here is what I am getting to, the awesome Matrix style kick that laid WEC Lightweight Champion on his back late in the 5th round to secure Pettis' strap and title fight in the UFC.

November 6, 2010 – Lange Wins Title by Knockout

Four months ago, on a balmy DC-summer night, hometown boxing favorite Jimmy Lange lit up the ring at the George Mason University Patriot Center in Fairfax, VA with a decisive second round win over his opponent, Jimmy LeBlanc. That night, Lange announced he would return on November 6 and promised it would be an amazing night of fighting. That night came and so did the fans. Even with other big fights going on around the country, including Zab Judah’s fight in Newark, NJ and Juan Manuel Lopez’s fight in Las Vegas, NV (both men, by the way, did win), many DC-area fight fans, as well as boxing champions Paul Williams, DeMarcus “Chop Chop” Corley, andf Harry Joe Yorgey, came to witness Jimmy Lange’s return to the Patriot Center and William Joppy’s quest for a 40th career win.

Promoted by ICE Promotions and presented by Valcourt Building Services, Lange went up against Joe Wyatt in a ten-round championship fight for the North American Boxing Association’s (NABA) vacant super welterweight (154-pound) U.S. title (NABA is a division of the World Boxing Association). The co-main event featured William Joppy, former three-time middleweight world champion, and Cory “Black Ice” Cummings in a ten-round fight where Joppy was looking for a milestone victory.
