Default Pierce/Rocha

Well, it looks like that rumored grudge match between Eric Silva and Mike Pierce has been put on the backburner, because Pierce just booked Eduardo Rocha for a vacant slot on the UFC on FX 3 card.

Rocha broke the news via his official facebook account.

UFC on FX 3 is tentatively scheduled for June 8, but a location and venue have yet to be revealed by company officials.

Pierce last saw action at UFC 143 where he lost a razor thin decision to top welterweight Josh Koscheck. The loss marked his second UFC loss in six official outings.

Rocha is a “Team Black House” member who gave Jake Ellenberger all he could handle at UFC 126, but he lost. Having been put on the sidelines due to injury for more than a year this booking signifies his health and ability to return to action. Prior to the Ellenberger loss he was undefeated.

I agree. Rocha was very impressive against Jake.. However Pierce is very underrated will be a good bout!

Man, this should be one heck of a battle! Due to team loyalty, I'm obligated to root for Rocha (BJJ Revolution Team, baby!! ), but I can't to watch these two throw down!
