Pearson (17-9-1 MMA) has traded wins and loses to his controversial decision loss to Diego Sanchez back at UFC Fight Night 42. Since then TKO wins over Gray Maynard and Sam Stout have been sandwiched between loses to Al Iaqiunta and most recently Evan Dunham in Glasgow, Scotland.
Felder (10-1 MMA) had an impressive start to his UFC career, a split decision win over Jason Saggo in his debut was followed up by a ‘Performance of the Night’ bonus KO win over Team Alpha Male’s Danny Castillo at UFC 182. In his most recent bout, Felder dropped a unanimous deciison to Edson Barboza however his stock rose following the fight due to his gutsy performance and eye catching striking.
