Anthony Pettis is one of the top lighter-weight fighters in the business, and his little brother Sergio Pettis is looking to move into that category as well. The 19-year-old prospect will face the toughest challenge of his career when he meets veteran Jeff Curran in the main event of Resurrection Fighting Aliiance 8 on June 21st. MMA Junkie confirmed the bout, which will be for the promotion's flyweight title. The event will air on AXS TV.
Pettis (7-0) will be meeting the 35-year-old Curran (33-15-1), who will be dropping to flyweight for the first time in hopes of getting one final run in the UFC. The card also features two other fighters like Pettis who have siblings in the UFC, Chinzo Machida (Lyoto), and Keoni Koch (Erik).
