Oh, how "Danny Boy" is betrayed by his face.
At Roufusport Academy in Milwaukee, Danny Downes is
heatedly sparring in the cage. Anthony Pettis' best friend has dropped
in and watches the proceedings. The friend leans over to Pettis and gym
patriarch Duke Roufus and says, "Hey man, that kid is pretty good. When
he grows up, he'll be awesome."
Downes is 25 years old, and a day out from fighting Ramsey Nijem on the preliminary card of UFC 137.
