UFC Fight Night 47 Results: Bader Decisions OSP in Snooze Fest, Pearson TKOs Maynard

Ryan Bader defeated Ovince St. Preux at UFC Fight Night 47. In the night’s co-main event, Ross Pearson knocked out Gray Maynard.

There were other fights on the card. Most of them were pretty good. Unfortunately, terrible pacing really KILLED the card. It felt like an eternity between each fight. The six-fight main card started at 10 pm and didn’t finish until after 1 am. Brutal.

Remember when the UFC said they’d “put the ‘Bang’ in Bangor?” They didn’t.

Fortunately for you, we recapped the main card so you don’t have to sit through hours of terrible Nos commercials. Enjoy!

Gray Maynard vs. Ross Pearson Booked for UFC Fight Night 47, With Abel Trujillo Injured


(BREAKING — Ross Pearson and Ovince St. Preux have just withdrawn from their fights due to terror-induced injuries. / Props: Gray’s Instagram)

Due to an undisclosed injury suffered in training, UFC lightweight Abel Trujillo has been forced to withdraw from his scheduled main card bout against Ross Pearson at UFC Fight Night 47: Bader vs. St. Preux (August 16th; Bangor, ME). Stepping up to fight Pearson in Trujillo’s place is Gray Maynard, who was slated to face Fabricio Camoes on the same card. (Maynard and Camoes were originally booked to fight at UFC 176, before that event was canceled.)

Maynard badly needs a win here — or at least a halfway-decent performance. “The Bully” suffered back-to-back first-round TKO losses against TJ Grant and Nate Diaz last year, and has only won a single fight since 2011, an infamously dull split-decision victory over Clay Guida in June 2012.

Pearson is coming off his screwjob decision loss to Diego Sanchez in June of this year, which followed a no-contest against Melvin Guillard last October, when Guillard opened up a huge gash on Pearson’s forehead with an illegal knee. I’m sure Pearson would like nothing more than to defeat Maynard in a controversy-free ass-kicking. Should be a good one.

The bout order for UFC Fight Night 47 hasn’t been made official yet, but the list of matches is as follows…
