Pearson still on UFC on FX 4 card, with UFC despite arrest

Friday, May 04, 2012

“I talked to him on the phone the day that he got out, and we’re going to help him through it,” White said.

Pearson (13-5 MMA, 5-2 UFC) won’t lose a fight with Cub Swanson (16-5 MMA, 1-1 UFC) at UFC on FX 4, White said. The fight is scheduled for June 22 at Revel Atlantic City in Atlantic City, N.J.

If anything, the executive is frustrated with Pearson’s choice to drive while allegedly under the influence.

“He’s got 50 guys out there that he’s training with that he could have called,” White said. “He’s got money; he could have taken a taxi. It’s just one of those bad choices you make at that moment.”
