Anthony Pettis bet on teammate Raufeon Stots and won $20K.

Former UFC champion and current PFL fighter Anthony Pettis took team loyalty to a new level during Bellator 264, betting on his Roufusport teammate Raufeon Stots to win and ended up walking away $20,000 richer.

Stots put on an incredible performance against Magomed Magomedov, in a showcase between two of the best bantamweights in Bellator. It was a fight that was considered a toss-up by the masses, but Pettis was extremely confident in his teammate to get the job done.

It ended up paying off in a big way for Pettis, who has been a longtime member of Roufusport alongside his younger brother Sergio for the majority of his professional career.

In a back-and-forth war, Stots earned the unanimous decision victory over Magomedov in one of the best fights that Bellator has had all year long.

If there’s one thing to learn from Pettis’ leap of faith, it’s that loyalty pays off in a big way. This time, it made Pettis a rich man because of the gritty nature of his teammate Stots.
