UFC champ Anthony Pettis is a 3rd degree black belt in taekwondo. Vladimir Putin is a 9th.
So, who would win in a street fight? Don't bet on red.
Pettis -- who's fighting Gilbert Melendez at UFC 181 this weekend -- was out in NYC this week when he told us the 6 degrees of martial arts separation wouldn't matter if push ever came to shove.
For the record, here's how the tale of the tape would read ...
Anthony Pettis:UFC Lightweight Champion27-years-old3rd degree Taekwondo black beltHeight: 5'10"Weight: 155
Vladimir Putin:Russian President62-years-old9th degree Taekwondo black beltHeight: 5'7"Weight: Classified
The clip is awesome -- Pettis also tells us he spends time training at the same center as NFL superstar J.J. Watt ... and raves about how the guy CRUSHES weights in the gym.
