Abel Trujillo Out, Maynard In Against Pearson At FN 47
UFC Fight Night 47 has just lost Abel Trujillo with an injury, and as a result, top ranked UFC lightweight Gray Maynard is now stepping in to fight Ross Pearson at UFC Fight Night 47 in Bangor Maine.

Pearson is coming off arguably the most controversial judging decision in the history of MMA that saw him lose to Diego Sanchez earlier in the summer.
