Ross Pearson has sent a message to his next opponent, Diego Sanchez.

The two are scheduled to meet at UFC Fight Night: Henderson vs. Khabilov later this year from New Mexico in the co-main event. Benson Henderson and Rustam Khabilov are set for the main event that night.

During a recent training session, Pearson delivered a perfectly-timed head kick that floored his sparring partner. The Brit and former Ultimate Fighter winner posted a video of the knockout on his Instagram account.

The 29-year-old Pearson (15-6) is coming off a three-fight unbeaten streak. In his last bout, back in October, his fight with Melvin Guillard was ruled a no-contest after an illegal knee. Prior to that, Pearson had finished both Ryan Couture and George Sotiropoulos.
