Milwaukee Mayor Honors Pettis

UFC® LIGHTWEIGHT STAR ANTHONY PETTIS TO RECEIVE OFFICIAL PROCLAMATION FROM CITY OF MILWAUKEE TOMORROW

‘SHOWTIME’ HONORED FOR WINNING WEC LIGHTWEIGHT TITLE
AND COMMITMENT TO HIS HOMETOWN

Pettis to Receive Official Proclamation Tomorrow, Jan. 13, at 3:45 p.m. CT
Las Vegas, NV– It was a whirlwind year for UFC® lightweight star Anthony Pettis in 2010. Unbeaten in four fights last year, Pettis added the WEC® lightweight title to his resume, as well as a nationally-televised appearance on MTV’s hit show “World of Jenks.”

Those accomplishments, plus his work in the community, have earned the 23-year-old an official proclamation from his hometown of the city of Milwaukee, Wisc. Pettis will receive the proclamation during a meeting with Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett on Thursday, Jan. 13 at 3:45pm CT at the Mayor’s Office.

Pettis, whose “Showtime” kick landed against Ben Henderson on Dec. 16 was named one of the top 10 plays of the year by ESPN’s SportsCenter, expressed his sincere gratitude to Mayor Barrett and the city of Milwaukee for such an honor.

“This is an amazing feeling,” Pettis said. “It’s been a crazy year. I’ve won a world title, been featured on MTV and SportsCenter and threw out the first pitch at the Milwaukee Brewers game. I never imagined myself being in this position. I’m really thankful that Mayor Tom Barrett and the city of Milwaukee have chosen to honor me. Milwaukee means so much to me and I’m proud to represent it every time I compete.”
