i think pearson and cerrone is a good matchup...

cerrone needs a win and hasn't looked all that great lately. pearson has looked good but against lesser competition. on the one hand cerrone wants to stay relevant and on the other ross wants to become relevant..

truth is though if pearson can beat cerrone that says a lot, and that is a tough matchup for him so if he can become the victor then he will earn a lot of points among the MMA community...

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

Cerrone might be a tad early.

Gomi or Stout would be interesting fights.

Cerrone is overrated, Pearson could beat him if he fights smart.

Stout/Gomi both would be good fights, though I think Gomi would drag Pearson into a brawl easier than most guys

Cerrone is much more dangerous than Gomi/Stout though.

Cerrone is technical standing and dangerous on the ground, look at the Siver fight, if he clips you he'll take you on the ground.

Gomi presents a great chance for Pearson to prove he's not the bull he was, if he can be aggressive AND technical he can beat Gomi to the punch all night long.

Both big names that Pearson can take something away from.

Gomi has more power than Cerrone. Cerrone is dangerous but Pearson has the head movement to deal with Cerrone.

All 3 guys give Pearson a good fight and allow him to make a statement

Have to say Ryan looked good in this fight until Ross caught him. I scored the first round for Ryan definitely then Ross began to find his range.

Also did anyone notice during his entrance someone snatched Couture's hat and his corner man turned back round as if to deck the fan?

Ryan looked solid with his wrestling, but his striking was terrible

Its really hard to judge Ryans performance, knowing that Ross had a broken foot.

That being said I gave him round 1 easily.

Yep, what a douche bag, now everyone with same hat is going to say they took their hat from Ryan. I wonder if that kind of crap is distracting to a younger fighter?

Ryan's never shown a propensity for striking, but if he wants to go any farther he's going to have to shore that up. He looked a lot like his dad with his cage work, but he needs to strike better to do more damage in those situations.
