The good news for Ross Pearson, the left foot he injured minutes before taking center stage at UFC on FUEL TV 9 isn’t broken after all. The bad news for “The Real Deal,” his foot looks like it belongs on Professor Klump’s leg.
After rallying to post a vicious TKO victory over Ryan Couture on Saturday, Pearson revealed he hurt his foot in the locker room during warmups. The lightweight didn’t attend the post-fight press conference because he was taken to the hospital immediately afterwards.
However, Pearson has been updating fans on the status of his foot via Twitter. He revealed yesterday that X-rays on his kicker were negative. Early Monday morning, the Brit posted the above pic of his severely swollen and bruised foot.
As if not having to don a cast on his leg for several weeks isn’t good enough news, Pearson said he’s about to embark on a 10-day beach vacation in Egypt with his smokin’ hot girlfriend, Kristie Jane McKeon.
Pearson has won both of his scraps since moving back up to the lightweight division. He now stakes claim to a 15-6 professional record.
