Longtime Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight veteran Ross Pearson is going to fight Abel Trujillo at the upcoming UFC Fight Night 84 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on March 20, 2016, which takes place on FOX Sports 1 inside Brisbane Entertainment Center in Australia.
That’s according to “Real Deal,” who splattered the news across his social media accounts earlier today.
Pearson (18-10, 1 NC) hasn’t been able to win back-to-back fights in almost three years, alternating wins and losses across his last 10 fights. That includes his unanimous decision defeat to Brazilian wunderkind Francisco Trinaldo earlier this month in Boston.
Trujillo (13-7, 1 NC), meanwhile, recently snapped a two-fight losing streak by strangling Tony Sims at UFC 195 in Las Vegas, Nevada. “Killa” hasn’t been to the judges’ scorecards since Khabib Nurmagomedov wrestled the shit out of him back in 2013.
This should be a fun (and violent) fight.
UFC Fight Night 84 will be headlined by the heavyweight pairing between Mark Hunt and Frank Mir. Elsewhere on the card, Hector Lombard returns to action opposite Neil Magny, while Steve Bosse throws hands with local hero James Te Huna.
