Juan Archuleta VS Sergio Pettis Bellator 2021

Juan Archuleta new Bellator Bantamweight Champion after outpointing Patrick Mix at Bellator 246 looking to defend his Bellator Bantamweight title for the first time.

No better defending against Sergio Pettis. Pettis 2-0 with Bellator so far. Juan Archuleta vs Sergio Pettis would be one of the most anticipating Bantamweight fights in the MMA world of 2021. Archuleta showing he’s one of the best Bantamweights in the world with a win against Sergio Pettis.

Our next fight, we’re shooting for the first of the year. The the first card back (after the new year) against Sergio Pettis. That’s the fight I originally wanted for the belt,” Archuleta said.


“He’s a gamer,” Archuleta said. “He’s been in there with the best – the best 125ers in the world. That’s what he’s going to bring. He’s going to bring experience, he’s going to bring talent, and I see me beating him. Don’t get me wrong – I think it’s a great matchup for myself. But it’s going to be a hell of a fight. It’s one of the fights that I wanted to have for the vacant title, anyway, but Bellator and myself thought Patchy had a little better momentum in the organization, and so that was the contender. And so now I’m going to be able to prove to myself and to Bellator that I’m the best.”

Sergio Pettis on Juan Archuleta

Sergio Pettis 2-0 with Bellator facing Juan Archuleta would be one of his toughest opponents UFC and Bellator. Defeating Archuleta shows Pettis all along was better fighting in the Bantamweight division. Found a new home in Bellator.

“This is a big opportunity for me against a tough opponent in Juan Archuleta,” Pettis told MMA Junkie Radio. “I think he’s only been defeated like two times or three times, so big name for me to go out there and add to my resume. Being 27 years old now, I think this is the perfect time for me to go out there and showcase my skills and show the world what I’ve been working on these past, I guess, almost 10 years now.”

Sergio Pettis in 2021 can make a name for himself instead of being Anthony Pettis little brother. Scott Coker wrapping the Bellator Bantamweight title around Pettis waist.

Pettis vs Archuleta

Sergio Pettis vs Juan Archuleta would be one very fascinating fight to watch. Both fighters are talented, Coached well as well. Pettis coached by Duke Roufus, Archuleta coached by Duane Ludwig.

The areas of weakness between them is very small. Pettis is more of a volume striker, Technically sound while Juan Archuleta is more powerful, Basically a Pitbull. All American Junior College Wrestler and wrestled at Purdue.

I have no clue whose gonna win this fight because of the high levelness. One error, Wrong move can lead to a knock out.

Both fighters MUST bring there A game or it will be a one sided dominant performance.

Hope Bellator markets this Bantamweight title fight like crazy because it will be a special fight to watch, Mark on your calendar for 2021.

Bellator Future Featherweight Champion Juan Archuleta

Juan Archuleta signed with Bellator as Featherweight Hottest Prospect in 2017. Speaking for myself I was WISHNG Juan Archuleta signed with Bellator because of his success with King of the Cage, Winning three KOTC Titles and training with TJ Dillashaw. TJ speaks highly of Juan and believes he’ll be a Bellator Featherweight Champion.

Archuleta 6-1 record with Bellator ( Loss to Patrico Pitbull) at 32 years old.

“It irks me that I lost [to “Pitbull”]. It’s not that I lost, it’s just that I didn’t get to really give my best performance on the biggest night of my life. It sucks but I gotta count my losses and suck it up like a man. It doesn’t define who I am.”


Losing to Patricio “Pitbull” Friere sucks no doubt about it but quitting is even worse. Defeated Henry Corrales at Bellator 238, Gaining his confidence back and ranking Juan Archuleta as a contender.

Bellator Featherweight Grand Prix suspended at the moment because Covid-19, Juan Archuleta can only train with TJ Dillashaw and Cub Swanson working on his craft waiting when the virus is all over or when Scott Coker decides to schedule events for the Summer of 2020.

Juan Archuleta would have to wait anyway because he wasn’t slotted in the Bellator Featherweight Grand Prix.

Fight options for Juan Archuleta lost and fought in the Bellator Featherweight Grand Prix such as Derek Campos and Adam Borics. Two top ten Bellator Featherweights. No way Archuleta will accept a fight against a lesser opponent, He’s at the top of the Bellator Featherweight division.

In 2020 Juan Archuleta no matter what is focused on CHALLENGING for the Bellator Featherweight Title by fighting Patrico Pitbull ” Revenge Fight” Rising star AJ Mckee Jr or a dark horse Featherweight like Pedro Carvalho.

Wins over Ricky Bandejas, Eduardo Dantas, Henry Corrales. Training with TJ Dillashaw, Cub Swanson and being coached by Duane Ludwig he has the recipe to win the Bellator Featherweight Grand Prix in 2020 or 2021.
