    Uh, perhaps read previous posts? Someone had commented it's a really bad match and I was just pointing out that if it were so bad the commission wouldn't allow it. Then I was simply asking if they had the power. Part of the commision's job is to not allow some new inexperienced fighter to fight someone that is way too far beyond them. Is it not?

    It's obvious what is going on. Does Ryan have a chance? Of course he has a chance, it's a fight. But track records, IMO, show that Ryan is well out of his league here. I don't care who wins honestly, but I don't see it going well for Couture.

    Theres a boatload of TUF rejects in the UFC, why does he have to fight Pearson of all people?

    Ryan can turn this into a dogfight against the cage and has some underrated BJJ, but I've seen all but one of his pro fights and IMO, he wouldn't even make it out of a TUF house as a winner and from that, there's no way I'd book him against a top 20, heck 30 LW....
    snig,

    couture won. plain and simple. it was a close fight and a victory could be argued either way.. no one dominated the other, but in the end, couture was the winner.

    and fedorlei, would you not call noons a top 20 or 30 lw? i think that's a bit of a stretch. noons is def top 20 imo and duarte is no joke either. his stand up, especially in that weight class, is dangerous.

    i think noons and duarte are both easily UFC caliber fighters. anyone who is fighting in the UFC is easily a top 30 fighter in their weightclass.

    I don't feel this is a horrible match up for Couture. Ross looked good against george sot, but he is just one win removed from being ko'd by Cub. I think Couture could get in and clinch and take him to the ground. Should be a good fight.

    Yeah I'm not sure I understand why this is apparently a huge mismatch. Obviously Ryan is the underdog, but it's not like Pearson is a top 10 (or even top 20 tbh) lightweight.

    Couture just fought (and was gifted a decision) a competitive fight with KJ Noons. I don't think Pearson is really a tougher match-up than KJ.

    LW is a pretty stacked/talented division. Not really a lot of "easy" matches to make for him...

    i give ryan a legitimate chance at winning.. if he can get inside, bully pearson a bit and not just stand in front of ross and try and kickbox with him, i think he can win this fight.
