Ross Pearson’s UFC Return Delayed Due To New Injury


Ross Pearson was last seen in action at UFC On Fox 30 in July of 2018, suffering a unanimous decision loss to John Makdessi.

The TUF champion was scheduled to fight in late 2018 at UFC Fight Night Adelaide, but Pearson would undergo surgery to repair a broken nose and deviated septum.

Pearson, who was apparently ready to return to action, will now see that comeback delayed due to a torn labrum that was suffered while training.

That news was revealed by Pearson through Twitter:


Here is a transcript of what Pearson wrote:

“So braking the news to everyone asking when I’m fighting next … I was prepping for a feb/March fight, getting in shape weight down training going well but I tore my labrum in my shoulder last week grappling I don’t need surgery going to try recovery with rehab program & Physio looking to get back into the cage ASAP thanks for all the support & this small stumble won’t stop me still going to make this year my bitch.”

There is no word yet on when Pearson will return to action, but more should be known as the shoulder injury heals up.
