Ross Pearson (12-5, 4-2 UFC)
Who he's facing: Junior Assuncao
Why he's in danger: Okay, so maybe danger isn't the word. Pearson is an Ultimate Fighter winner and a nice guy to have on the roster for future U.K. events, so he's probably not going anywhere no matter what happens on Friday night.

Matt Riddle (5-3, 5-3 UFC)
Who he's facing: Luis Ramos
Why he's in danger: It's the same old story. Two losses in a row leaves him one bad night away from the dreaded three-fight skid. But how did it get to this point? Things were going so well for a time.

Manny Gamburyan (11-6, 2-4 UFC)
Who he's facing: Diego Nunes
Why he's in danger: If you go back to his recent WEC stint (and it's all in the Zuffa family, so why not?), he's on a two-fight losing streak. You know what that means. Then again, his last loss in the WEC was to Jose Aldo, so he deserves a little slack. And his most recent UFC loss was a majority decision to Tyson Griffin, which, okay, doesn't look great in light of Griffin's recent stretch.

Efrain Escudero (18-3, 3-2 UFC)
Who he's facing: Jacob Volkmann
Why he's in danger: The former TUF winner is back in the big show, and he's got his work cut out for him. After being cut following a disastrous Fight Night appearance in which he failed to make weight and then got submitted by Charles Oliveira, he knocked around in the small shows and did well enough to merit a phone call when the UFC found itself in need of a quality lightweight.

I'd like to think as long as Efrain comes out and fight hard he deserves another shot for filling a spot last minute.

Putting Ross on there is laughable, he arguably only has one loss in the UFC, he beat Edson Barboza despite what the delusional judges say.

He got knocked down and, as far as I remember, generally outstruck.

That's what I remembered also, but it seems alot of people around here feel he was robbed.

It was close but putting my British allegiances aside I genuinely thought it was Ross' fight, some may disagree and that's fine but there are many of us that thought Ross won. FightMetric favoured Ross considerably as well.

I thought barboza won. Could have gone either way, that was not a robbery. A robbery is when someone obviously wins and loses the decision. Phone Post
