ufc fight night 47

Ross Pearson has been tabbed as the replacement for Bobby Green, taking on Abel Trujillo at UFC Fight Night 47. Green was moved into a main card fight at UFC on FOX 12 opposite Josh Thomson after Michael Johnson was injured.

Pearson-Trujillo will take place August 16 from Bangor, Maine as part of a card that features Ryan Bader against Ovince St. Preux.

Pearson (15-7) is coming off a controversial loss to Diego Sanchez in which the decision went to Sanchez. The former Ultimate Fighter winner had won two of three prior, but the UFC did state plans to proceed as if Pearson had won the Sanchez bout.

Trujillo (12-5) has won his last two, including a knockout of Jamie Varner in February.

Below is the current lineup:

Light Heavyweight: Ryan Bader vs. Ovince St. Preux

Middleweight: Tim Boetsch vs. Brad Tavares
