Junior Assuncao thinks he will be the one to welcome “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 9 winner Ross Pearson to the UFC featherweight at the promotion’s year-end pay-per-view event.

The Brazilian fighter Monday told Sherdog.com that he is nearly certain UFC officials will grant his wish for a fight with the Englishman at UFC 141, which takes place Dec. 30 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

“We haven’t signed yet, but I can say it’s a 99-percent chance that this fight will happen,” Assuncao told Sherdog.com. “I asked the UFC to face Pearson when I found out he was dropping to 145 pounds. He’s already telling everyone that he’ll fight me and I will welcome him.”

Cool story, Hansel. I hope Pearson doesn't have weight issues, some of these guys dropping to FW make me nervous...

I'll take Pearson in this one but should he have issues cutting the weight, he may gas out and find himself on the wrong side of a decision.
