Ross "The Real Deal" Pearson vs Edson "Junior" Barboza
Better Nickname: There was already a Real Deal. He was the heavyweight champ of boxing and unlike Will Smith, he beat Mike Tyson. Going with Junior even though that's not winning as much as it's the other guy losing.
Inside Scoop, Pearson: He's well rounded. Can win with strikes or submissions. Two fights ago, he got choked out by Cole Miller.
Inside Scoop, Barboza: He's undefeated (8-0) but hasn't fought anyone that good. He's got a lot of stoppages due to strikes. That's that Muay Thai showing. He's fighting in his hometown.
Prediction: Barboza. Pearson would be smart to take Barboza to the ground and test his jiu-Jitsu/wresting but that doesn't happen. It stays on the feet and Barboza wins with strikes. TKO.
