Go Ross!

This is how I feel, although technically George is a wizard on the ground and his boxing is very underrated, he just doesn't really have the best ability to take the fight to the mat, I'd like to see him pull guard more and work for subs and sweeps.

I think Pearson will out work him on the feet. He's got much better footwork and is a lot faster. His head movement is great if he doesn't decide to just stand there and brawl.

He's been rocked and finished a few times now, I think he'll be a lot tighter and technical this fight and will either get a UD or a late TKO.

I'm not really sure who I think will win this fight. I don't really have a preference either.

All about where this fight takes place. If George get it to the ground he wins if not he gets KOd.

Taking Ross mainly because George has been off so long and he's sliding badly

This is exactly what I thought about the Pearson/Cole Miller fight too.

Pearson beats him up.

He's dealt with much sturdier fighters in the past. The only variable in this could be the travel/home arena advantage.

Just realized G-Sot hasn't fought since he got KO'ed by dos Anjos.

Should be G-Sots fight to lose but seeing the commercials and what looked like some bad blood makes me suspect he will get caught up emotionally look to strike and end up losing.

G-Sot should take him down (which he should be able to do) control him with his lead hips (should easily be able to do) and sub him when the opportunity presents itself. (should be able to do).

Never been super impressed with Pearson but he has steadily improved but unless he has a trick or G-Sot gifts him by fighting his fight I don't see him winning.

Finally! A bout where the winner will be... well... still irrelevant.

He's out landed everyone of his Lightweight opponents?

I don't believe that one bit.
