Pearson, Trujillo Head Down Under

Lightweight bangers Ross Pearson and Abel Trujillo are expected to put on a show "Down Under" on March 19, when they square off in a UFC Fight Night bout at Brisbane Entertainment Centre in Brisbane, Australia.

In the five-round main event, former two-time heavyweight champion Frank Mir faces Aussie favorite Mark Hunt.

Looking to bounce back from a decision loss to Francisco Trinaldo on January 17, former Ultimate Fighter winner Pearson will be making his third appearance in Australia, where he has already defeated Spencer Fisher and George Sotiropoulos. Fighting for only the second time outside of the United States, Trujillo is eager to keep the momentum going from his January 2 submission win over Tony Sims.
