Manchester, United Kingdom (XX Month 2011) – Myprotein, the UK’s top online supplier of protein supplements and sports nutrition products, were extremely proud to see their sponsored fighter, Ross ‘The Real Deal’ Pearson, take his MMA record to 12-4 (4-1 in the UFC) with a hard-fought unanimous decision victory over grizzled veteran Spencer ‘The King’ Fisher at UFC 127 in Sydney, Australia.
The win is arguably the most significant of Pearson’s career, as it comes on the back of a disappointing submission loss to jiu-jitsu ace Cole Miller at UFC Fight Night 22 in September 2010, and puts the Team Rough House Fighter back on track in his quest for a shot at the UFC lightweight title.
Fisher, a veteran of fifteen UFC fights (nine victories) and a perennial contender in the 155lbs division, pressed the action early and dictated the pace of the first round, but as the fight wore on Pearson was able to utilise crisp kickboxing and a stiff jab to land the more effective strikes.
With the two fighters appearing to have split a round each going into the third and final stanza, Pearson upped the tempo and began tagging his opponent with greater frequency before hitting a big takedown and seeing out the round by punishing Fisher from half-mount. The three judges at ringside scored the contest 29-28, 29-28 and 30-27 in Pearson’s favour.
As with all his fights, Pearson made use of Myprotein’s extensive selection of sports nutrition and training supplements in preparation for this latest bout. Citing Myprotein products as an excellent way of aiding the development of lean muscle, Pearson lists MP MAX Total Protein XS, Impact Whey Protein, Alpha Men, ZMA, HMB, BCAA plus, Tribulus Pro, Glucosamine HCL, and Omega 3, 6 and 9 as his most-used Myprotein products.
“We were delighted to see Ross get back to winning ways inside the Octagon,” commented Neil Kirwin of Myprotein. “It was clear from how fresh he looked in the closing minutes of the fight that Ross was in superior condition. It gives us great pleasure to see our hard work and tireless research vindicated in front of a global audience, and we hope that the continued success of Myprotein athletes competing at the elite level will convince more people to use oursports supplements and nutrition products to perform to the very best of their ability, whatever their chosen sport.”
