Ross Pearson Mug shot
UFC fighter and "Ultimate Fighter 9" winner Ross Pearson was arrested on suspicion of DUI this weekend in Vegas ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us, Ross was pulled over around 4AM early Sunday morning when police noticed his car swerving on the road.

When police approached the vehicle, we're told they observed signs Ross had been drinking and asked him to get out of the car -- where they administered a field sobriety test.

According to law enforcement, Ross performed miserably on the test and was placed under arrest on suspicion of DUI.

He has since been released. Calls to Ross were not returned.

"...was placed under arrest on suspicion of DUI."

It's 2012, we still can't figure out if a motherf-cker is drunk ?

"..He has since been released."

Well, we still don't know anything and you guys are THE MEDIA ? Do your f-cking jobs and find out what is going on and stop phoning in the stories.

Dude, no worries, Nevada is a founding California Celebrity Court state affiliated. Just pay your attorney whatever outrageous amount s/he will be gouging for and you're home free. That's the PRICE you pay for being a drunk.

There's a guy down my street who got bust for drunk driving. Perhaps you folks at TMZ want his name. It'll have all the impact of this nobody.

I wonder how many here really know who he is. I watch MMA, so I do. He is an assistant coach on TUF this season also.

This guy clearly has more brawn than brains. What's with all these "celebrity" losers driving drunk? Someone needs to teach a course on how to call a cab and sign up all these idiots!

Damm, tmz, you're getting more pathetic by the minute. Just looking through these "stories," you've only got a very few on people that might actually be considered celebrities. Jessica Simpson, Usher, and if you're really hard up, the poser Ray J. The rest are all douche bags. And that's not even bothering to vomit at yet another story on your favorite dogs, the Kartrashians. Even the minimum wage you're paying your slackers is too much, Harv.

These poor rubes. Most of them will spend their middle years slobbering over a drool bucket and trying to remember their own names.

If you think the NFL and boxing have head injury issues, wait another 5-10 years to see how this group is doing.
