[sotiropoulos vs Pearson live|http://blogs.rediff.com/pacquiaovsmarquez4z/2012/12/14/ufc-on-fx-6-sotiropoulos-vs-pearson-live-stream-watch-now/] All the fighters slated to participate in tomorrow night’s “UFC on FX: Sotiropoulos vs Pearson” event tipped the scale Thursday inside Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. After TUF, Sotiropoulos got off to a tremendous start in the UFC, [Legacy FC 16 Live Stream|http://legacyfc16lived.lifeyo.com/] scoring seven straight victories and putting himself on the verge of title contention before a planned showcase bout against Dennis Siver at UFC 127 in his home country of Australia backfired in a big way and he lost a decision. His negative momentum continued at UFC 132 when he was destroyed by a Rafael dos Anjos right haymaker in just 59 seconds. [uFC on FX 6 live|http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/10406086/QLD/Queensland-Australia/Watch-UFC-on-FX-6-Sotiropoulos-vs-Pearson-Live-Streaming-Free-Enjoy/Gold-Coast-Convention-and-Exhibition-Centre/?ps=5] Injuries have kept the Aussie sidelined for over a year, but he'll have an opportunity to return with a vengeance after coaching an international season of TUF "The Smashes" as he battles his rival coach Ross Pearson tomorrow night. Ross Pearson infamously planned to be a bricklayer, but after training in some martial arts, he decided to make a very severe change in careers. After building up a respectable 8-3 record in England, [Legacy FC 16 Live Stream|http://trustedarticleslibrary.com/legacy-fc-16-live-streaming-watch-now-enjoy/] he was invited to participate in season nine of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), which pitted UK fighters against Americans. The lightweight cruised through the season, [sotiropoulos vs Pearson live|http://ufconfx6lived.metroblog.com/] improving each time out and would go on to defeat Andre Winner in the finale to capture the TUF 9 lightweight contract. Pearson made a splash in the UFC 155 pound division, winning his first three bouts before losing in a rather large upset to Cole Miller at UFC Fight Night 22. [Legacy FC 16 Live|http://blogs.rediff.com/legacyfc16lived/2012/12/14/watch-legacy-fc-16-live-streaming-free-enjoy/] He briefly got back on track against veteran Spencer Fisher but would go on to lose a very close decision to Edson Barboza in Brazil last summer. George Sotiropoulos, surprised us during filming by being something of a ****. While editing could definitely have played a part, the Australian lightweight exuded a certain arrogance throughout [uFC on FX 6 live|http://trustedarticleslibrary.com/ufc-on-fx-6-sotiropoulos-vs-pearson-live-stream-free-enjoy-watch-now/] but despite losing the coaches’ challenge, could still have the last laugh this weekend. The high-level grappler wasn’t far from the title-picture in 2011 after stringing together an impressive seven victories, including wins over Joe Lauzon and Kurt Pellegrino. But a decision loss to Dennis Siver and a 59-second knockout at the hands of Rafael Dos Anjos leaves the BJJ black-belt in a must-win position this weekend. [Legacy FC 16 Live|http://legacyfc16lived.metroblog.com/] Similarly, Team UK coach – Ross Pearson – seems light years away from the fighter who won ‘TUF 9’ and went on a tear, including defeating Dennis Siver by decision. [sotiropoulos vs Pearson live|http://www.discogs.com/groups/4696] The striker was also unfortunate to drop a decision in Brazil to Edson Barboza at UFC 134, but that loss prompted an ill-advised drop to 145lbs. All the fighters slated to participate in tomorrow night’s “UFC on FX: Sotiropoulos vs Pearson” event tipped the scale Thursday inside Gold Coast Convention [Legacy FC 16 Live|http://www.discogs.com/groups/4701] and Exhibition Centre in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. After TUF, Sotiropoulos got off to a tremendous start in the UFC, scoring seven straight victories and putting himself on the verge of title contention [uFC on FX 6 live|http://ufconfx6lived.lifeyo.com/] before a planned showcase bout against Dennis Siver at UFC 127 in his home country of Australia backfired in a big way and he lost a decision.
