Melvin Guillard, Ross Pearson Do-Over Set For 2014

Melvin Guillard, Ross Pearson Do-Over Set For 2014

Melvin Guillard and Ross Pearson will do it all over again this March, as officials have agreed to pair the two fighters up for the UFC’s return to England.

The contest is expected for the March 8 event from London after they fought to a no-contest due to an illegal strike that caused the fight to be ruled a no-contest.

Guillard stated on the post-fight show for UFC Fight Night 30 that he was down for a rematch, and Pearson agreed.

“I want to fight on the December 28th card in Vegas,” Guillard stated, “but I’ll fight Ross again when he’s ready.”

Pearson posted on Twitter, “Sorry to all the fans tonight crazy things happen in this sport but March 8th me and (Guillard) will put on the unfinished show,” he wrote.

Officials made the call to pair them together again during the post-fight press conference.
