|Ross Pearson vs. Edson Barboza -DISCUSSION THREAD|
PLEASE DISCUSS TONIGHT"S FIGHT HERE AND PLACE PREDICTIONS AND THOUGHTS
Barboza (8-0) has scored back-to-back victories since debuting with the promotion last November. After crippling leg kicks left his opponent, Mike Lullo, unable to continue in his first octagon appearance, the Rio native followed-up with an equally impressive performance at last month's UFC 128, where his dynamic striking display against Anthony Njokuani earned him both a unanimous decision win and a Fight of the Night bonus.
Pearson (12-4), meanwhile, defeated Rough House teammate Andre Winner in 2009 to become the TUF 9 champion. In the time since, he has posted a 4-1 mark with the promotion, including victories over Spencer Fisher, Dennis Siver, and Aaron Riley. His sole loss under the UFC banner came via submission against Cole Miller at UFC Fight Night 22.
I do think Ross Pearson has done a good job of finding himself in the UFC since winning “The Ultimate Fighter”, but I just don’t see him getting past Barboza. Barboza has just looked too good in his UFC fights thus far, and he’ll be fighting in his native Brazil. It will be a wildly competitive fight, but in the end Edson Barboza will win a Unanimous Decision.
