UFC lightweight Anthony Pettis has dreamed of becoming a UFC champion since he began training mixed martial arts and he has that opportunity on Aug. 31 at UFC 164 when takes on titleholder Benson Henderson in a rematch.
Pettis defeated Henderson by unanimous decision in 2010, winning the WEC lightweight title in the process.
The WEC was folded into the UFC shortly after Pettis became the organization’s champion. Since arriving in the UFC, Henderson has gone undefeated, capturing the title by defeating Frankie Edgar on Feb. 26, 2012, but Pettis believes lightning can strike twice.
“I beat Ben Henderson once, I can do it again.”
