Ross Pearson: I broke my foot before the Ryan Couture fight


Vaunted UK striker Ross Pearson appears after his brutal knockout of the debuting Ryan Couture, explaining that he likely broke his foot in final preparaton for the bout. Pearson looked for a solution, but ultimately just had to tough it out.

The injury did not appear to affect his performance as he put on another extremely exciting fight. ‘The Real Deal’ noted that he found Couture’s standup to be awkward, but quickly adjusted and found his range. Pearson could be in ine for a truly top-level bout quite soon. 


  • Very solid performance by Ross. He looked great. From what I can see, he seems to be the British fighter with the most potential.

    • one of them at least but Pickett, Bisping and perhaps McGregor are right there too

  • high praise for ross, i mean couture was not trying to fight, he was just running all over the place. I mean if he cannot take a take down, he should stand up and fight, not running.

  • After watching Couture try to implement his dads boring grind game against the cage I was really happy to see him get knocked out.
