Barboza is one of those young, extremely talented up-and-coming lightweights that the division seems to be filled with these days and I think he will continue his success by beating Pearson.

My first impression was Barboza is going to take this very handily but then I realized Pearson must be huge in comparison. That could make things very interesting.

I have this strange feeling that Pearson is going to outwrestle him. I dont know why, and I'm not really going to bet on it. Alliance MMA is quietly becoming one of the better camps in MMA.

Hoping Pearson wins, but I think Barboza will get the TKO late in the fight.

I am thinking this will either be a really great striking contest or Pearson will get crippled by leg kicks within a round and just get beaten on for the rest of the fight.
