January has been full of fantastic fights thus far. Needless to say, 2014 has started off with a bang in MMA, and there is still one more huge card to whet our appetites. UFC on FOX 10 goes down this weekend in Chicago with the pivotal Lightweight main event battle between former champions, Benson Henderson and Josh Thomson.
The card is stacked with exciting matchups and prospects. One such matchup is the preliminary card headliner between Alex Caceres and Sergio Pettis. Pettis, the younger brother of Lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, is an incredible athlete in similar vein to his brother. In his UFC debut, he defeated the veteran, Will Campuzano, in an exciting bout that previewed what he can do in the future. Caceres, who is already a veteran of the UFC, still has a lot to prove since his stint on the Ultimate Fighter. While he has had flashes of brilliance inside the cage, we have yet to see Caceres put on the performance that puts the Bantamweight division on notice.
In preparation of UFC on FOX 10, the UFC has released Caceres’ most impressive UFC win to date; his submission victory over Damacio Page back at UFC on Fuel TV 4. Check out the ‘submission of the week’ below:
