Default Ross Pearson vs. Edson Barboza UFC 134

Now that's a fight!

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

I know Barboza was originally slated to face Gomi, but this fight is quality too. Who takes it though? I think Barboza's aura of invincibility went in the Njokuani fight. This could be similar! Wouldn't like to pick it though...

Barboza is a better striker than Pearson. So is Njokuani.

Wouldn't be surprised if Pearson tried to out-wrestle him. I think Barboza will knock him out instead.

Always like watching Pearson on the pre lims, undercard or fight nights. He is good quality for that level and with a bit of work he might break that level comfortably. He did beat Siver and Fisher afterall.

Pearson has better hands imo. Barboza is a better Muay Thai guy though..

Pearsons best chance is to take this to the ground, or try to keep Barboza against the cage. Strange for a british fighter having to use a wrestling stategy but Barboza's striking is just too good for Pearson.
