Robertson Steps Into UFC 161 Card to Face Pierson
Sean Pierson has received a new opponent for UFC 161 after his original opponent TJ Waldburger pulled out due to injury. Now “The Punisher” will be facing Kenny Robertson on the June 15th card in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Pierson (13-6) enters the bout on a two fight win streak having defeated Jake Hecht and Lance Benoist. ’The Punisher’ is 3-2 in his five UFC fights. He was to have faced Rick Story at UFC 158 in Montreal, but had to pull out of that fight.
