Ross Pearson VS. Aaron Riley AT UFC 105

“The Ultimate Fighter” Season 9 winner Ross Pearson will get his first post-show test when he faces veteran Aaron Riley at UFC 105 on Nov. 16 in Manchester, England.

The news was confirmed to Tuesday by sources close to the fight.

UFC 105 has yet to be announced by the promotion, but is expected to take place at the Manchester Evening News Arena. Early reports tabbed B.J. Penn vs. Diego Sanchez to headline the event, but UFC president Dana White said this weekend that a search is currently underway for a main event. A middleweight contest between Michael Bisping and Denis Kang co-headlines the show.

riley should be able to win. i don't think pearson's wrestling was that good, and riley has a very good ground game.

Considering that Winner is better than Riley, and Pearson already beat Winner, I'd say Pearson has a good shot at taking this.
