RFA 8 Smokin Joe Pegg

“Smokin” Joe Pegg vs. Sergio “The Phenom” Pettis at RFA 8

RFA Main Event Flyweight Title Features “Smokin” Joe Pegg vs. Sergio “The Phenom” Pettis

In just 2 weeks G-Force MMA veteran Joe Pegg will step back in the cage to take on Sergio Pettis for the Resurrection Fighting Alliance (RFA) Flyweight Title. Just days ago after his impressive victory over Team Visions Jeremy Pender. Joe got the call from RFA matchmaker Mike Camp and was asked if he would like to take a flyweight title fight against Sergio Pettis, the younger brother of  UFC contender Anthony “Showtime” Pettis. Without hesitation Pegg accepted the offer and began the weight cut.

Pettis at age 19 has a Pro record of 7-0 and is a 2nd degree Black Belt in Taekwondo. Sergio brings to the cage his aggressive in your face style of stand up which Pegg fans know so does Joe. Pettis who was originally supposed to fight Jeff Curran an excellent ground fighter was more than likely working his ground game and take down defenses for this fight but will his game plan change? Will Pettis being a stand-up fighter and Pegg being a stand-up fighter decide to stand and bang? We asked Coach Ron about the upcoming fight with Pettis here’s what he had to say:

“Obviously, we want a stand-up fight I think that’s what the fans want too. They want to see both of these guys showcase their stand-up against each other, if that happens the fans will get the show they expect from these two very talented strikers. We know he’s been working his ground and he might try to take Joe down but we’re not worried about that either Joe has just a good ground game as any other top 125er so going to the ground would be a big mistake for Sergio.

Pegg who has been training and fighting since the early conception of  Team G-Force in 2006 plans to bring experience and calm but aggressive style to the fight. The RFA show will be aired live on June 21st on AXs TV at 10 pm
