Ross Pearson most recently fought Melvin Guillard, in what was a fantastic battle up until the unfortunate illegal knee which caused the fight ending cut on Pearson’s forehead. The fight was ruled a no contest, and the two were set to rematch at UFC Fight Night 37.
It was an anticipated rematch, but it was not to be, as Pearson has suffered a knee injury during his training leading up to the fight.
