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 set to embark on a 10-day beach vacation in Egypt with his smokin’ hot girlfriend, Kristie Jane McKeon.
Meanwhile, Pearson has won both of his scraps since moving back up to the 155-pound division. He now stakes claim to a 15-6 professional record.
