Following Saturday nights second round TKO finish of Ryan Couture, UFC lightweight, and TUF Season 9 winner, Ross ‘The Real Deal’ Pearson (15-6) announced that he thought he had broken his foot warming up for their UFC on FUEL TV 9 bout.
Pearson had been warming up with coach Eric Del Fierro when it occurred, rather than tell anyone the Brit kept it to himself till after his win against Couture.
On Sunday, Pearson posted a photo of his foot and this note on Twitter (@RossTheRealDeal)
- Thank U everyone for support! Docs said not broken! Crazy night @amel619 @EricDelFierro @deanamasinger @SWEET_JAH
The win was ‘The Real Deal’s’ second straight since returning to 155-lbs having stopped opposing TUF The Smashes coach George Sotiropoulos last December at UFC on FX 6 in Australia.
