Despite 4-fight skid, Ross Pearson says he's still with the UFC – and he wants a fight soon


The past 15 months have been rather unkind to Ross Pearson. After going his entire career without consecutive losses, “The Ultimate Fighter 8” winner has dropped his past four fights, leaving him in a position of career uncertainty.

Although still just 33, Pearson (19-14 MMA, 11-11 UFC) has been fighting professionally for nearly 13 years. He has three dozen fights between his pro, amateur and exhibition bouts, and never before has he experienced a slump close to what he’s dealing with now.

Pearson has mentioned retirement on and off at points of his career, and after suffering arguably his most violent loss to date in his most recent bout against Dan Hooker at UFC Fight Night 110 in June, it seemed the end might be near.

“The Real Deal” assured his supporters that’s not the case, though. He announced on social media that he’s not ready to hang up his gloves, nor has he been released from the UFC on the heels of four consecutive losses (via Instagram):

For everyone asking yes I’m still fighting, yes I’m still with UFC, & yes I’m looking to fight soon I have rested my body my mind & spirit I’m training everyday waiting for ??????

Pearson did not mention exactly who or when he would like to fight next, but UFC Fight Night 121 on Nov. 18, which takes place in Australia, where Pearson currently resides, seems like a suitable destination for his return to the octagon.
