Ross Pearson is the latest British import to showcase some dazzling skills in the Octagon. His dismantling of Germany's Dennis Siver in last night's UFC Fight Night 21 was a brilliantly executed display of stand-up against a very dangerous and dynamic fighter, and it's obvious that Team Rough House is at the forefront of the ascension of British mixed martial arts.
Being beaten by the consensus #2 lightweight fighter in the world certainly means you should just retire, right? Gomi won't be a world beater in the future, but a serviceable middle-of-the-road veteran who could make a run at breaking top five in the UFC is possible with some grit and determination. Top five in the UFC isn't exactly the top however.
