via cdn0.sbnation.com

UFC lightweight and The Ultimate Fighter 9 winner Ross Pearson is contemplating a drop to the featherweight division. Pearson is coming off a close split-decision loss to Edson Barboza at UFC 134. He shared the news today via twitter:

Decisions....decision what to do!!! Thinking about testing 145lbs see if I can make it, could be some big fights for me at that weight!!less than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone Favorite Retweet Reply

I will do a test run an keep u all posted on how I do at making 145lbs need to sit down speak to UFC & coaches see what they thinkless than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone Favorite Retweet Reply

Pearson stated in response to a question that he only drops 10 pounds to make the 155 limit, so it's certainly within the realm of possibility. He could definitely be a force in a semi-shallow 145 division if he was able to do it.
