UFC FN 72: Michael Bisping And Ross Pearson Booked For Fights
By FCF Staff
The UFC’s first trip to Scotland will feature two of Britain’s biggest names, as the promotion has announced that both Michael Bisping and Ross Pearson will fight at the July 18th card.
Bisping (26-7) has been booked to fight fellow middleweight contender, Thales Leites (25-4). The latter has won five straight since he returned to the UFC in 2013, and most recently, Leites choked out Tim Boetsch.
Bisping, meanwhile, earned a unanimous decision win over CB Dollaway in April, and is 3-2 in his last 5 contests.
Pearson (17-8) has been signed to fight fellow lightweight vet, Evan Dunham (16-5).
Dunham will be looking to build on the decision win he earned over Rodrigo Damm in January, which ended the fighter’s three fight losing streak.
Pearson is coming off a knockout win over Sam Stout in March, after he was stopped by Al Iaquinta in November.
UFC FN 72 will be hosted by the SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland.
