Rochester’s Eric Pettengill is set for his second official mixed martial arts fight on Saturday as part of “Gladiators,” an event being promoted by Kathy’s Pub in Rochester.

Pettengill made his MMA debut nearly two years ago, but he’s been away from the fight game since then (he had one unofficial fight that isn't included on his record). He recently resumed training, and he’s working with Logan Clark at Rochester MMA.

Pettengill (0-1) was a standout high school wrestler in Iowa. His wrestling background made for an easy transition to MMA.

Pettengill, who is currently retaining his amateur status, will meet up with fellow amateur Jeremy Gabel, who also is a former Iowa high school wrestler, on Saturday at Gladiators.

We caught up with Pettengill on Tuesday to speak with him about his upcoming fight.

So Eric, you’re fighting Jeremy Gabel. What do you know about him?

Pettengill: He’s a pure wrestler. Other than that, I don’t know much. I know he’s not very experienced. But for me, it really doesn’t matter. Whoever I’m fighting, I’m going to do what I do. If he wants to wrestle me, great. I’m good with that. If he wants to stand up, I’m fine with that, too. I’m comfortable everywhere.
