Rick Story squaring off with Sean Pierson at UFC 158

Sean PiersonLess than two years ago UFC welterweight Rick Story was seen as a likely title-contender, stringing together six straight wins including success against the likes of Thiago Alves and Johny Hendricks. However, #7 was unlucky for the 28-year old, as Story lost a decision to Charlie Brenneman in the bout and came up short in two of his three following tilts as well.

Story will look to right his career’s trajectory (and avoid a potential release) on March 16 when he meets Sean Pierson at UFC 158. Event officials have confirmed the clash’s addition to the card.

The 14-6 Story was last seen suffering a submission loss to Demian Maia in October. In addition to Hendricks and Alves, Story also owns a past victory over Jake Ellenberger in addition to those over Brock Jardine, Ryan Healy, and Dustin Hazelett.

Pierson will definitely entering the match-up with some momentum after picking up back-to-back wins in his last two tussles. He holds an overall record of 13-6 with ten finishes to his credit.

    That Charlie Brenneman fight was a fluke and taken on short notice. He didn’t look the same in the fight or any after it. Put him in the right camp and that dude goes all the way to title-contender in a couple/three fights.
