It will be a clash of lightweight veterans when Ross Pearson takes on Francisco Trinaldo next January, as The Sun reported.

Still trying to shake off an inconstant stint, Ross Pearson comes from a split decision win over Paul Felder after a decision loss to Evan Dunham. In fact, "The Real Deal" has been alternating wins and losses ever since he knocked out both George Sotiropoulos and Ryan Couture in late 2012 and early 2013, respectively.

As for the TUF Brazil 1 veteran, Franciso Trinaldo lives the best moment of his career, riding four wins in a row over the likes of Leandro Silva, Akbarh Arreola, Norman Parke and Chad Laprise, who he knocked out in the first round last August.

Ross Pearson and Francisco Trinaldo will meet at UFC Fight Night 81, in Boston, on January 17. The card will be headlined by the bantamweight title fight between T.J. Dillashaw and Dominick Cruz.
