Ross Pearson on Latest KO Win: It's Been a Long Time Coming

| by

Ross Pearson made the long journey through a season of The Ultimate Fighter a few years ago as a competitor. Pearson finished off TUF with a victory, and did the same after a stint as a coach on the show Friday night at UFC On FX: Sotiropoulos vs. Pearson.

The two were coaches on The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes, which featured Team United Kingdom against Team Australia. Pearson dropped Sotiropoulos early before finishing him off in the third round.

People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:

"It feels amazing. It's been a long time coming," said Pearson, on the Fuel TV post-fight show. "There's a lot of emotions. There was a lot going on behind the scenes. It feels like the world's been lifted off my shoulders."

Pearson (14-6) moved back to lightweight after a stint at featherweight was unsuccessful. He has gone 3-3 now in his last six fights after putting together a four-fight win streak from 2008-10.
