The battle between Pearce and Onama serves as a stable providing at featherweight. Sadly, Onama missed weight for this contest (and can subsequently be fined 20 % of his purse), however the battle is fortunately nonetheless on.

Regardless of Onama having the upper ceiling and ending potential between the 2, I believe that Pearce’s pressure-grappling type may show to be further problematic within the smaller octagon of the UFC Apex.

I nonetheless wish to see extra enhancements from Pearce, however I consider that Onama’s lack of defensive hand-fighting and reliance on athletic scrambling will get him caught in quicksand.
