A lightweight bout between Ross Pearson and Evan Dunham is the latest addition to July’s UFC Fight Night event in Scotland.
UFC officials recently announced the fight.
Ross Pearson (17-8 MMA) was most recently seen in action at March’s UFC 185 event in Dallas, where he scored a second-round knockout victory over Sam Stout. Prior to that, “The Real Deal” suffered a TKO loss to Al Iaquinta in November of 2014.
Meanwhile, Evan Dunham (15-6 MMA) is coming off a unanimous decision win over Rodrigo Damm, which he earned at January’s UFC 182 event in Las Vegas. That victory snapped a 3-fight losing skid for the Oregon native, who had previously dropped bouts to Edson Barboza, Donald Cerrone and current lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos respectively.
UFC Fight Night 72 takes place July 18 live from SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland. The event is headlined by a middleweight bout featuring Michael “The Count” Bisping taking on Thales Leites.
