Diego Sanchez vs. Ross Pearson At UFC Fight Night 43

A lightweight face off pinning former title contender, Diego Sanchez against TUF 9 winner, Ross Pearson was revealed today for the UFC Fight Night 43 card set for June 7th in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Sources first reported the booking, which is set to take place at Tingley Coliseum, Albuquerque, N.M. UFC officials subsequently confirmed the matchup.

Sanchez may have suffered back-to-back losses, but his popularity may never have been higher, as fans know the original “The Ultimate Fighter” winner is always looking to bang, as witnessed by his seven “Fight of the Night” bonuses. Meanwhile, British slugger Pearson looks to fight for the first time since a disappointing no-contest result against Melvin Guillard in October.
