Peter Petties of Baltimore's Crazy 88 BJJ was recently brought in to mimic the style of TJ Dillishaw for Mike Easton's upcoming UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) fight January 15, 2014. Petties was brought on to the camp for his wrestling abilities which are similar to Dillishaw's. Petties involvement in this fight camp should prove beneficial for both Easton and Peter. Petties' ultimate goal is to reach the UFC, and this fight camp will give him firsthand experience in preparing for such an event.
Petties began his involvement in the sport on the Oakland Mills High School wrestling team. He was able to win over 100 matches, giving him an incredible amount of competition experience. After high school, he began training Muay Thai Kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ). He now has many BJJ credentials to his name including placements at the IBJJF Boston Open, as well as the No-Gi Pan American Championship. Earlier this year, Petties traveled to Thailand to train Muay Thai in its native country. This makes Petties an incredibly well-rounded fighter. Most fighters are only able to specialize in one martial art and dabble in others to carry their MMA career. Petties has a wealth of experience in mulitple martial arts which proves him a valuable asset to Easton's fight camp, and creates a bright future for him in the sport of MMA.
Mike Easton of Team LLoyd Irvin in Camp Springs, Maryland has been training martial arts for over 12 years. With 16 fights and a record of 13 wins and 3 losses, Easton is one of the Bantamweight division's top prospects to become the champion in the UFC. Like Petties, Easton is very well-rounded. Easton holds a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, as well as a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He has earned many titles in kickboxing including WKA world champion, as well as international placements in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu including 2008 IBJJF World Championship Brown Belt bronze medalist. This makes Easton very difficult to fight, because he is both comfortable in kickboxing as well as grappling on the ground. His opponent, TJ Dillishaw, holds a record of nine wins and two losses. He is a three time NCAA wrestling qualifier, which makes this a very interesting match stylistically.
Petties is well prepared coming into this fight camp. He trains twice a day in wrestling, BJJ, and Muay Thai, and maintains a high level strength and conditioning program. Petties is looking towards one day joining his teammate in the UFC. Head Muay Thai coach and professional MMA fighter, Aung La Nsang, said, "Pete is going to bring a valuable piece to Mike's camp while gaining a lot of experience as well. This is another big step towards the highest levels for our program in MMA."
