Both were coaches on The Ultimate Fighter Season 20 and now we have a date for the coaches to get it on.

Anthony Pettis won the Lightweight Championship back at UFC 164 in August, 2013 where he submitted long rival Benson Henderson via first round armbar. He has been out of action since though because of injury but it looks like “Showtime” is ready to get back in the cage………
