    I wonder if this will keep Pearson from reaching that next level, or if they will kind of just overlook it?

    What is it with famous people? I know Ross Pearson isn’t as well known as say Paris Hilton, but within the mma community he’s well known enough. So how come some people lose all common sense when they achieve some semblance of fame. It’s as if they think they’re different than other people. Yeah they are certainly richer than the average person, but that should make it more affordable to, I don’t know, CALL A CAB! Moron.
