No, you're not seeing double. There are now two Pettises in the UFC.

Sergio Pettis, the 20-year-old younger brother of UFC lightweight champion Anthony "Showtime" Pettis, has signed with the organization.

According to a report in Brazil's Globo, Pettis will compete at bantamweight and make his debut at UFC 167 on Nov. 16 in Las Vegas against an opponent to be named.

The Milwaukee native has been fighting professionally for two years. He's 9-0 with three knockouts and three submissions, and he held the Resurrection Fighting Alliance flyweight title.

His most recent victory was on Sept. 28, where he scored a first-round victory via Kimura over James Porter.

Update: UFC officials confirmed Pettis will be fighting at UFC 167, and he will be fighting Vaughan Lee.
