Listen to the Pettis brothers talk about dealing with the Diaz brothers on TUF 20

Listen to the Pettis brothers talk about dealing with the Diaz brothers on TUF 20

There's a moment in this video in which Anthony Pettis says he 'grew up in the ghettos of Milwaukee, Wisconsin' and by doing so subsequently invalidates everything else he said in the entire video. Yeah, those ghettos of Wisconsin -- filled with government cheese, I assume. Seriously though, has there ever been a shred of evidence suggesting that Wisconsin is even remotely 'ghetto?' Can we get someone from the state to verify or negate this claim?

It's clear the ghettos of Stockton are far greater than whatever they have in Wisconsin. However the Pettis brothers insist that they're pretty seedy too, and they will defintely stand their ground if stuff gets hectic on the set of The Ultimate Fighter 20.

Milwaukee is indeed pretty rough in some areas.

Haven't been to Stockton, but I'm just going to assume it's worse, tho.

"The ghettos of Milwaukee Wisconsin." It's rough up there. The cheese reeks and the beer is terrible. Makes for a tough society.

I'm born and raised in Stockton, Ca. And its way over exaggerated. I have the numbers and both are high in different categories. Look at these numbers per 100,000-
Murders- Stk-12.12 MKE-16.94
Rapes- Stk-41.63 MKE-37.21
Robberies- Stk-469.04 MKE-517.34
Assaults- Stk-860.15 MKE-480.07
Burglaries- Stk-1275.98 MKE-1020.12
Thefts- Stk-3895.97 MKE-3941.00
Auto Thefts- Stk-1078.13 MKE-1096.1
Arson- Stk-26.98 MKE-57.07

So I don't see a clear cut winner of worse city. What do you guys think?

Pettis is the man and 'YES' Milwaukee is a very rough place. Most segregated city in the nation and one of the worst crime rates in the country. I would rather take on the Diaz boys than go down the wrong road in Milwaukee.

It is not only unbelivable offensive but plain dumb to say about ghettos in that context. There is an opinion that americans are uneducated, but... hell you've got the internet, you can read what ghettos WAS!

The greater Milwaukee area is kinda a shitty place. It had a month last year or so where there was a murder every day and the misrepresented a lot of violent crimes in reports.

Milwaukee is the 10th most dangerous city in the country. It's VASTLY different from the rest of Wisconsin.

I'm sure Stockton is worse but Milwaukee is not Green Bay, it's like the light version of Detroit.

My buddy is a real estate agent in Milwaukee and he routinely sells foreclosures for $4k - $6k. At that price, it can't be that nice.

Arguing about which $hithole is "badder" than the next is ridiculous. I grew up and Baltimore city until I was in 8th grade then we moved out to the county. Baltimore city is a ROUGH place, scary really. I fought a lot but mainly it was against guys who couldn't walk the talk. But when I moved out to the county, man those boys were TOUGH! Wrestlers. When you fought one of these guys, you FOUGHT! It wasn't talk, it was, "meet me after school," and then the fights would last 10 - 15 minutes easily. It was madness but it toughened me up a lot. Throwing some punches on the city streets was a lot easier than going at it on the county baseball diamond after school.

Post-roid Braun, post Bucks Jennings. A city obsessed with sports and beer.

Couldn't sell out the Bradley Center during the huge tourism week when he won the belt.

A lot of missed opportunities marketing showtime in his own city.

Born and raised in brew city and its safe to say its pretty well fucked lol but I love it here. Keeping your dumb ass comments to your self goes a long way but that's everywhere. And anyone who prides them self on where there from like it makes them tough is most likely a bitch. There's bad asses and bitches in every city, and I've been to Stockton and a lot of other places . Basicly if its known as a "ghetto" its most likely shitty. . But for anyone to brag about there ghetto being more ghetto than the next ghetto congrats you could jump rite on stage with drake and rap about how you started at the bottem and now your here. But your not rappers your fighters so shut your mouths and fight
