UFC on FX 6 Results - Sotiropoulos vs. Pearson


2 of 6

UK vs. Australia - George Sotiropoulos vs. Ross Pearson Results
George Sotiropoulos vs. Ross Pearson Results - As coaches of the UK (Pearson) and Australian (Sotiropoulos) teams, these two headed the second TUF show outside of the United States. Interestingly, the show was called 'The Smashes'. Though it was a play on words, as the 130 year old cricket rivalry between the two nations is called 'The Ashes', fact is people wondered aloud who would make the biggest smash at the event. Would it be the better grappler in Sotriopoulos, a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu nightmare, or the better Muay Thai guy in Pearson?

Keep reading for the answer.

Round one was simply awesome! Pearson dizzied Sotiropoulos early in the stanza with a right, knocked him down with a low kick much later in the stanza, and generally beat him up on his feet between those two strikes. That said, late in the round the Australian took Pearson down, took his back, and nearly sunk in the rear naked choke.

Good ending for Sotiropoulos. But it wasn't enough. Give round one to Pearson.

The second round was interesting. Sotiropoulos used his jab to out-strike his adversary all stanza long. That is, until Pearson dropped him with a hard left. Does a momentary knockdown outdo the fact that Sotiropoulos was winning?

Hard to call.

Early in round three, Pearson hurt his opponent with a hard left hook. His Australian adversary got up, only to get dropped by Pearson again moments later after a vicious combination. This time, the referee stepped in.

Ross Pearson defeats George Sotiropoulos by TKO after 41 seconds in round three. Really solid fight.
