Who you guys got and why ?

Right now i feel like Pearson will win this one. I think he will stop the take downs and win a standup war.

I got George by 2nd rd sub as my pick but I honestly think if he cant get the takedown on Ross then he is screwed.

Hope Ross wins this one but my gut is saying George so I'm going with it

Pearson via being more well-rounded and athletic.

This is my analysis.

While George has great Jiu Jitsu and, from what I remember, serviceable striking, he is 35 years old and hasn't fought in a year and a half.

Pearson is younger, and I remember being impressed with his boxing and clinch work. He should be the quicker fighter, and he has fought more recently. Some may say that his last loss (a KO to Cub Swanson) may mess him up mentally, but I think a careful fight is what he needs here anyways. He trains out of a great camp in Alliance MMA, and should be well prepared for this fight.

I'm not 100% on this, but I'll take Pearson to Sprawl, Box, and Clinch his way to a decision.

I think GSoP is due for a comeback win and he'll outpoint Pearson via a more intelligent fighting style. Then again I'm a pretty big GSoP fan so my view's probably skewed.
