This weekend, the UFC will be in Chicago with an amazing card that will be on free TV. This gives fans access to some incredible fights, and one of the most exciting matchups of the evening will be a bantamweight clash between Alex Caceres and Sergio Pettis.

Both of these bantamweights are crisp, dynamic strikers, so it’s going to be a true treat to see their techniques unfold inside the cage this weekend for UFC on Fox 10. A big question surrounding this fight is whether Pettis will live up to all the hype. He’s the brother of current lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, who has already made a mark in the UFC.

Can Sergio do the same? He’s been able to so far as he already won his first fight in the UFC, which was against Will Campuzano.

This bout was thrilling from the very beginning, and it was Pettis who was able to land more strikes and dictate the exchanges on the ground. He wasn’t able to get the finish, but this could have been Octagon nerves, which happens to a lot of fighters who compete in the UFC for the first time.

Going up against Caceres, he’s going to be the better striker. He will use these skills to make Caceres overextend himself. When this happens, he will clip Caceres with some huge hooks, which will send him to the canvas.

Pettis will finish the fight and walk away with his second straight win inside the UFC. After the win, the bantamweight division will have to consider Pettis a serious threat. He will live up to the hype, and he will prove to be too much for Caceres both on the ground and standing.
