Pearson, Sotiropoulos named as coaches for TUF: Australia vs. UK

by Tom Ngo | source:

During Wednesday’s FUEL TV post-fight show, UFC president Dana White announced George Sotiropoulos and Ross Pearson (Pictured) will serve as opposing coaches on “The Ultimate Fighter: Australia vs. UK.”

White confirmed Sotiropoulos and Pearson will collide once filming wraps on the reality series. However, White wasn’t able to report when the two would tango or which weight class the scrap would take place in.

Lightweight would likely be the landing spot, but Pearson’s last two bouts took place at featherweight after transitioning from the 155-pound division.

A while since I saw it too, but I seem to remember that whenever a bunch of the guys were laughing, he'd have been involved. Thinking on it, he probably was just one of the lads who encouraged others to do funny stuff. Seems a laugh though, so I stand by him not being bland.Funniest Brit on that season has to be Jeff Lawson though. Running around like a lucha libre, top lad (':

Off the top of my head, I can't think of any instance when he was entertaining, but that was 3 years ago so you would have to refresh my memory.
