It hasn’t taken the UFC long to find Ross Pearson and Abel Trujillo their next fight, as the promotion has announced the lightweights will scrap on March 20th. That’s the day UFC Fight Night 84 will take place Brisbane, Australia.
Trujillo (13-7) fought earlier this month at UFC 195, and submitted Tony Sims with a guillotine choke in round one. The American has gone 3-2 in his last 5 fights.
Pearson (18-10) fought as recently as January 17, and lost via UD to Francisco Trinaldo. The British lightweight is 2-3 in his last 5 contests.
So, that’s an interesting addition to UFC FN 84, which will be headlined by a heavyweight bout between Mark Hunt and Frank Mir.
