Don't think Couture has much of a chance.

Let's be honest - Ross Pearson isn't a world beater, and pretty much anyone can beat him on any given night. That said, I haven't been overly impressed with Couture either. I think Ross catches him or at the very least out-strikes him.

I'm not overly impressed with either of them.

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...

I think Noons is better than Pearson personally.

I think it would be a good fight. I rate Pearson better because he is more well-rounded. He should be able to stuff any Couture TDs and still out-strike him on the feet. While having the cardio to keep a solid pace for all 3 rounds.

Noons hasn't look good in a while in my opinion, not that Pearson has looked great either. Noons is Couture's only decent win and it was a split decision. Didn't a lot of people score that fight for Noons? Memory is a little fuzzy. I'm going to have to agree with Jonny here. Pearson is no world beater, but he's still a solid fighter and a difficult match up for Couture at this stage in his career.

Okay more nut hugging from me I've always been a big fan of Randy's mainly because we went to the same high school and anytime you can get behind someone like that you do, especially when the next famous person I went to high school with was the first person to be convicted of murder when no body was found. That being said I don't see Ryan following to closely in his dad's footsteps, mind you it would be awesome to see him do it, but I just don't see that same fire in his eyes like was in his dad's. If he can't get past Pearson I'm afraid his stay in the UFC is going to be short. Hopefully Dana won't be a dick and feed him to the wolves just to piss his dad off. Yeah right, Dana won't be a dick.

That was a robbery, should have been 30-27 UD Noons.
