The finishes continued in the second fight on the pay-per-view at UFC 226 on Saturday night, as Anthony Pettis dusted off his “Showtime” style of ending a fight.

Following Khalil Rountree’s KO of Gokhan Saki in the PPV opener, “Showtime” Pettis managed to score a beautiful submission victory over submission-specialist Michael Chiesa in a featured 155-pound bout.

After an exciting first round that saw a lot of entertaining back-and-forth action, Pettis stunned Chiesa with a big shot in the second round. He dove in a guillotine choke for the submission finish attempt, however Chiesa survived. It was moments later that Pettis caught Chiesa in a triangle and grabbed onto the arm as Chiesa was forced to tap out.
