Anthony Pettis releases statement over 'cowardly act'

Anthony Pettis Instagram

Former UFC champion Anthony Pettis admitted he was "extremely confused and saddened" by the scary situation that caused three cars to catch on fire in his driveway Thursday morning.

He put out a statement on Instagram early Friday morning saying, "my life as well my loved ones were put in danger."

A preliminary investigation done by the Milwaukee police revealed that an unknown suspect used an accelerant to ignite two vehicles and the fire then spread to the third car, a spokesperson for the police department told MMA Fighting on Thursday. Milwaukee PD is currently looking for suspects, but none have been identified at this time.

No one was injured in the blaze, and it did not spread to Pettis' home.

Pettis says he won't be "defeated" by this and vowed to make sure that whoever committed the crime will be prosecuted.

Sergio Pettis also released a statement saying, "the cars might be broke but we will never be broken."
