UFC Ultimate Insider recently followed Anthony 'Showtime' Pettis around his hometown as he made preparations for his upcoming title fight. The piece focuses on a familial bond the no. 1 lightweight contender has developed with his head coach, Duke Roufus. 

'Showtime' enters UFC 164 on Saturday to participate in one of the most anticipated fights of the year. If it's anything like his first fight against Benson Henderson, this rematch may result in a new champion.
