UFC fighter to make appearances in Gwinnett

UFC lightweight Anthony 'Showtime' Pettis will make an appearance at the QuickTrip in Suwanee and GNC in Buford on Saturday.

Pettis, who recently fought at UFC 144 in February, will visit QuickTrip from 11 a.m. to noon at 3995 Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road in Suwanee. He'll visit the GNC at Mall of Georgia, which is located at 3333 Buford Drive in Buford, from 2-3 p.m.

Pettis gained fame in 2010 when he performed the 'Showtime Kick' by using the cage as a lateral springboard to launch a roundhouse kick to his opponent's face in a fight. The moment was recognized by ESPN as a 2010 Top 10 highlight reel.
