Ross Pearson is scheduled to fight Ryan Couture at this Saturday's UFC on Fuel TV 9 in Stockholm, Sweden. The british lightweight veteran recently spoke to MMAFighting and discussed why he felt a victory was certain:

"I definitely feel he's going to come in prepared, I definitely think it's going to be the best Ryan Couture we've seen, but no, I don't think he’s on my level," he said on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour. "I don't think he’s fought the level of competition I've fought. I don't think he's been fighting UFC-caliber guys forever, really, so no, I don't think he’s on my level. If things go to plan he won't last very long in there with me.

"I'm not taking him lightly," he continued. "I'm not overlooking anything. I'm preparing for a tough fight. I know Ryan's durable. I know Ryan can take a shot, and I know Ryan's game. So he brings some threats to the table. I just got to be on my A-game, sharp, strong. Knowing how powerful I hit and how fit and strong I am and letting him know how much I want to fight. I've got to own this fight and I've got to perform well, show him what the UFC is all about."

It's refreshing to see a fighter giving an honest opinion instead of just talking smack.

Pearson is a classy guy so it isn't surprising he said something good

I'm guessing they booked this one to get back at Randy somehow. Pearson for your first UFC fight? He might not have the best record, but it's obvious that there's no way in hell Couture is getting him down or submitting him. Ryan is going to get punched in the face, a lot. Good luck to him though.

Dana knows what he's doing lol.

Randy is going to be too happy watching his son get KO'd.

Ten eight round -  Pearson is legit.

And in this case he's also correct. Phone Post

I completely agree with Ross too, it's a humongous step in competition. MASSIVE step up. Feels like Mendes vs. McKenzie all over again...

I can honestly say I have only seen Ryan's last two fights but I can't see this one getting past the second round. Pearson by blatant superiority... but I'd LOVE to be proven wrong. It would be a hell of a story.

I think Ross is a higher caliber fighter. As far as how they match up, I actually think Ryan is gonna pose a lot of problems for Ross.

Bah, he's not on Coutures level on the ground but Ross might be too good for Ryan to take down.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Couture finish him if he could get him down.

I'm not saying he should win but I see ways he could. Phone Post

KJ doesn't have 1 punch KO power but he had Ryan on queer street numerous times.

 

btw KJ won that fight on everyone's card except the 2 judges.

So your saying Ryan won..... Phone Post

Pearson is right.  This is a tough matchup for Ryan.  Maybe Dana is sticking it to Randy

Ryan will poke Pearson in the chest.

He will collapse and the fight will have to be stopped and awarded as a KO win to Ryan Couture.

Pearson will grab the mic and call in a few guys.

Followed by Bellator music blasting.

Randy hits the cage, Ross stares him down before ripping off his sponsor shirt to expose a Bellator t-shirt.

Ross says, "We're taking over" and Randy adds "It's gonna get extreme." followed by Ryan who says, "Yeah. Xtreme Couture!"

They all leave to fans tossing trash. Phone Post
