Ross Pearson On Road To Recovery After Surgery

Ross Pearson On Road To Recovery After Surgery

Ross Pearson spent Friday undergoing surgery for an injured leg, posting that he is awake and doing well on Twitter.

Pearson was expected to have a rematch with Melvin Guillard later this year after the two fought to a no-contest in October. That bout was shelved after the former Ultimate Fighter winner suffered the injury to his right knee in January.

Pearson (15-6) returned to the lightweight division in 2012 after a stint on The Ultimate Fighter as a coach, finishing George Sotiropoulos and Ryan Couture. He is targeting a return to action in May or June.
