Pearson New Foe for Trujillo in Bangor

After Friday's news that Bobby Green was being shifted from his UFC Fight Night bout against Abel Trujillo into a UFC on FOX matchup with Josh Thomson later this month, England's Ross Pearson has entered the mix, as he will now meet up with "Killa" Trujillo in Bangor, Maine on August 16.

Champing at the bit to get back into the Octagon after his controversial decision loss to Diego Sanchez in June, the former Ultimate Fighter winner will get the chance to throw hands with Trujillo, whose three-fight unbeaten streak includes knockouts of Roger Bowling and Jamie Varner.
