Undefeated prospect Sergio “The Phenom” Pettis has found a new opponent for his octagon debut.

The brother of the UFC Lightweight champion Anthony “Showtime” Pettis, The Phenom was originally scheduled to take on Vaughan Lee, at UFC 167, Nov. 16. Lee pulled out of the fight due to injury.

Now Pettis will face Will Campuzano, who is no stranger to the octagon. Although The Phenom is coming in with a lot of hype, Campuzano has the tools to win the fight.

Campuzano previously fought in the UFC back in 2010-11, losing both of his fights. After being released by the promotion, Campuzano fought in different regional promotions, racking up a five-fight winning streak in the process. at Vale Tudo Japan 3, he defeated Japanese star Hideo Tokoro by split-decision.

This has the makings to be a good fight. While Pettis will be looking to make a good impression in his first fight in the octagon, Campuzano is on a mission to capture his first UFC win and show the world he has what it takes to compete with the best fighters in the world.
