Neither are elite fighters. But Pearson hasn't been bad. His win over Soti was solid. Went to a split with Barboza in a stand up fight. Beat Siver. I think Ross has been solid, and has shown a decently well-rounded game. Solid TDD, solid striking, solid cardio.
I like him better at 155. Can't believe this is the co-main though. Are they just using Couture as a name and the cut his ass after 2 losses because they don't like Randy or what? Ross is a tough fight for your 8th fight and 1st in the UFC...
