Ross Pearson and Dennis Siver at UFC Fight Night 21

Ross Pearson and Dennis Siver at UFC Fight Night 21

Former ‘Ultimate Fighter’ winner Ross Pearson is considering a move to 145lbs, but will make a test cut before ultimately deciding.

The Brit made the announcement via Twitter on Tuesday.

“Decisions, decisions what to do,” Pearson wrote. “Thinking about testing 145lbs, see if I can make it. Could be some big fights for me at that weight.”

Pearson is fresh off a very close split decision loss to Edson Barboza Jr. at UFC 134 in Brazil. Since exiting the ‘Ultimate Fighter’ house, Pearson has gone 4-2 overall, but just 1-2 in his last three fights.

While Pearson admits there’s nothing definitive yet about the move, he wants to test the waters by making the cut to featherweight while in training to see how his body is affected and then make the decision from there.

“I will do a test run and keep you all posted on how I do making 145lbs,” Pearson said. “Need to sit down speak to UFC and coaches, see what they think.”

Pearson did state in a response to a fan that the drop had nothing to do with his last fight because he believes he won that bout, but still feels like there are some big match-ups for him at featherweight.

The former TUF winner spent the majority of his last training camp in San Diego working with the Alliance Training Center, but will be at home in England for now while he mulls over his options.
