Is Ryan Couture on Ross Pearson's level?

We're going to find out in just a few hours, when "The Real Deal" and "Natural"-junior hook 'em up in the co-main event of UFC on FUEL TV 9: "Mousasi vs. Latifi," which emanates from the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.

Pearson (14-6) captured the "six-figure contract" on season nine of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) reality show, having fought nine times inside the Octagon since graduating in late 2009. "The Real Deal" made a pit stop in the featherweight division, but after a coaching stint on TUF: "Smashes," the 28-year-old returned to 155 pounds to fight opposing coach George Sotiropoulos, winning the contest by third-round technical knockout.

The scrappy Brit is 6-3 over the course of his UFC career with notable wins over "G-Sots," Spencer Fisher and Dennis Siver.

Couture (6-1) has fought all seven of his professional mixed martial arts (MMA) bouts under the Strikeforce banner, racking up one technical knockout, two submissions and three decision wins, including a controversial split over K.J. Noons back in January.

Time to find out if he's UFC material.
