LoL I thought so. That strengthens my point right there. This may be a little too soon for Ryan.

I'm going with Couture, the Strikeforce midcard has been kicking the UFC midcards butts and Ross although skilled the Junior Assuncao fight showed some holes in his game that Couture could exploit.

I have no idea how good of a wrestler Couture is but I'm fairy sure that's where the fight will be won and lost.

I think Pearson is better than he is being credit for on this thread, as a striker he is very good and there will not be too many at LWs more technically gifted than Ross. He ****ed up going to FW and broke his hand against Cole Miller.

For his experience so far, he's pretty good on the ground. And for the 9,000th time and he's probably really tired of hearing it, he is not the wrestler his dad was, but then again not many people were in his day. I'm sure his best shot is on the ground. In the fights I've seen more striking is needed to take him to the next level, he seems to have the desire to put the time, so only time will tell. On another topic, it's bs that Dana or whomever did it won't let Randy corner his son, especially for such a huge fight for the kid.

i like pearson and his style... good technical striking with decent power and enough experience to edge out a decision vs. ryan.. he has decent defensive wrestling so i think he takes this

Pearson's a beast when he's not being an idiot and slugging bombs. His head movement when he actually remembers he can move his head is some of the best in the sport. Unfortunately he can be dragged into brawls quite easily when he does get hit. When he fights smart and tight, he's a hard man to beat and tough for anyone at 155. He's got pretty good TDD as well and a solid Judo base.

I think he wins this fairly handily.

Couture seems barely above regional level and it'll be an upset if he hears the final bell.

THIS!

Pearson has some of the best striking I've ever seen in MMA...When he's on. If only he didnt forego his outstanding technique to just slug it out, he'd have won a fair amount of the fights that he's lost.

I don't understand how people can underestimate his striking so much.

And I'd definitely take him to beat Noons, who's never impressed me as a striker.

Pearson will win a comfortable decision imo. Couture can take a punch, as he showed against Noons, so I think he'll make it to the judges but Pearson should avoid the takedowns and dominate standing.
