So what happens when you’re Anthony ‘Showtime’ Pettis, a guy with the power of B-Boy and a ninja assassin combined into one magnificent human being? Well, you get a sportsbar named after you and a show on MTV that’s all about you. That’s right, MTV devoted an entire episode of their new show ‘World of Jenks’ to Pettis because he is just that baller.
Here’s a little snippet of what the show creator and star, Andrew Jenks, had to say about Anthony Pettis on MTV.com:
“With ultimate fighting rapidly gaining in popularity, spending time with a fighter was at the top of my list. Plus, I never understood people who beat each other up for a living. From the info we were able to dig up online, Anthony was a perfect choice and we quickly reached out to get him involved. Little did I know that his career in the WEC was just one of his many important responsibilities. From tragedy striking his family, to being a role model in his community, Anthony had way more than a possible title shot weighing on his shoulders. My time with Anthony shattered my perception of his sport and taught me a lot about what it really means to be a champion. Even though there’s only two guys in the ring, they’re never fighting alone.
