Sergio Pettis was born on August 18, 1993, the same year Shaquille O’Neal was drafted to the NBA by the Orlando Magic. It was also the same year the Atari Jaguar was released — the world’s first 64-bit console and its controller doubled as a fancy pizza ordering device. I still have mine somewhere, buried in a pile of antiquated childhood rubbish at my parent’s house. If anyone correctly guesses what I’m listening to right now then I’ll ship you the entire thing, free of charge. Good luck, because it’s damn near impossible.
Let’s apply some basic math here. Sergio Pettis is only nineteen years old, which means his first videogame system was a Sega Dreamcast — he would have been a five-year-old when it was released. That means he was probably inspired by ‘Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes’ to start training MMA at the tender age of seven.
The point I’m trying to illustrate is that now I feel really damn old and I’ll probably spend the rest of my day sitting in the corner of my office playing my Gameboy while listening to hip-hop oldies like ‘Ja Rule’ and ‘RedMan.’ Just kidding, I would never listen to Ja Rule — ever.
While I feel like a fossil for the duration of the weekend, watch what Sergio Pettis did to Dillard Pegg last night at RFA 8.
