I think Pearson could find himself in deep waters early on with Barboza's speed and the home crowd behind him. But Barboza tailed off a bit after the first round in his last fight and if Pearson can get through round one unhurt then I think he's got the mental toughness to come back and squeak a decision.

Maybe I'm being a bit optimistic, dunno. The other thought nagging at me is that he's not going to able to cope with the speed and reach and just get outclassed for a ud but I'd love to see him pull it off.

Barboza has absolutely nasty stand up. Best leg kicks in the division IMO. Cerrone is a close second.

With that being said though, Pearson is a savage all around and I actually originally picked him to win but this is just one of those fights thats hard to visualize.

Man so pumped for this fight. It's going to be insane whatever happens.

COME ON PEARSON!
