It’s a wrestilng vs. jiu-jitsu match in Barueri, Brazil.

Mike Pierce looks to extend his winning streak to five when he faces dangerous grappler Rousimar Palhares at UFC Fight Night 29 on Oct. 9. Sources close to the situation confirmed the match-up to MMAFighting.com. Lance! first reported the bout.

Pierce didn't look too impressive against Mitchell until the knockout. He better watch those legs.

Nice ! I feel pierce doesn't get the respect he deserves just because some people think his fighting style is boring, but he gets the job done and its effective. Palhares will do what he always does and go for top position, interesting to see if he ends up on bottom though ? He doesn't look like he has an awesome guard just because of his stocky body

With his bull-like frame, I can see Palhares having issues with making 170.

I think Palhares' guard is underrated because it's not a traditional bjj guard, he uses more of a freestyle sambo type of attack that has proven to be very effective in the UFC.

Pierce is going to score another KO in this one

Mike Pierce is the most under rated fighter in the UFC in my opinion.

No doubt, I have him ranked at #7 just behind Ben Askren. His losses of controversial split decisions to Hendricks & Koscheck, which were split across the MMA media as well, should've kept him against the top level talent. He must of rubbed Dana White or Joe Silva the wrong way, but at least he gets another double pay day with an easy win bonus.

yeah agree, he cops slack for his style but he has been in some great fights.
the basczynski fight and to come back against simpson after he was badly hurt...he is as tough as they come imo.
