PIVOTAL BANTAMWEIGHT CLASH! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to San Diego, Calif., on Sat., Aug. 13, 2022, for the first time since 2015 with a pivotal battle between top-ranked Bantamweight contenders that will see No. 5-ranked Marlon Vera take on former champion and No. 8-seeded Dominick Cruz. In San Diego’s co-main event, Nate Landwehr and David Onama will collide in a Featherweight showdown between dynamic 145-pound hopefuls.

Both featherweights came out strong in the grappling department, but it was clear early on that Pearce possessed the strength advantage. After blowing his wad in the first round Amirkhani was unable to defense any of “JSP’s” advancements in the second. That allowed Pearce to score another takedown and punch his way to a finish.

Pearce, 30, is now undefeated at 4-0 since returning to 145 pounds back in 2020. The Tennessee fighter has shown an elevated ground game over the past few fights and looks like a threat to the top 15 moving forward. Of course, Pearce will have to do more on the feet if he wishes to outclass some of the best featherweights in the world.
