Pierce is a game fighter. In the UFC, he's only lost to big name fighters, and he gave them all a lot of issues. Split decision losses to Josh Koscheck and current number one contender Johny Hendricks, and a 29-28 unanimous decision loss to Jon Fitch back when he was number 2 in the division.
Mike keeps coming close to getting his big name win, but comes up short. Still potentially a top 10 fighter and he could potentially beat a lot of guys in the top 10 right now. Some people scored his fight against Hendricks for him after all. He doesn't exactly deserve a fight with Ellenberger at the moment, but Lawler would be a good name for him to fight. Very winnable fight as well.
