Probellum Results: Gallon upsets Pearson with Rolling Thunder kick


Davy Gallon spoiled Ross Pearson’s return to Mixed Martial Arts competition in the main event at Probellum on Saturday night at the Brentwood Centre in Essex.

The Frenchman landed a highlight reel Rolling Thunder kick that sent Pearson crashing to the canvas late in the third round.

TUF 9 winner Ross Pearson came out of retirement after losing to Desmond Green via TKO at UFC on ESPN in March. Ross suffered his third loss in a row and fell to 20-17 (1 NC) in professional MMA competition. Pearson announced his return to the cage after signing a management deal with MTK MMA.

Gallon improved his pro record to 18-7-2 and went viral with his stunning finish.

Probellum Main Card Highlights 

  • Aaron “50 Shades” Gray made his successful professional debut against Stelios “The Warlord” Theo in the co-main event. The bitter rivals went to war in a bloody three-round fight that ended with Aaron Gray being declared the winner via split decision. Gray opened a nasty cut above Theo’s eye as the lightweights traded blows in the final moments of the final round.
  • GB Top Team’s Weslley “Magic” Maia submitted Bryan Creighton with an arm-triangle choke in the third round of an exciting bout. Maia is now on a two-fight winning streak since losing to Jack Shore at Cage Warriors 97 last year. Hopefully, Maia gets another shot in the Cage Warriors bantamweight division.
  • Matty Byfield improved to 2-0 with another first-round TKO against Matthew Findlay. The Team Renegade representative is looking like a legit prospect in the light heavyweight division.

  • London Shootfighters product Vsai Villmur stopped Kashan Khan in the first round with a brutal onslaught that forced the referee to step in and stop the punishment.
