This Saturday at UFC Fight Night: London, Brad ‘One Punch’ Pickett’s professional mixed martial arts career comes to an end. The UFC honored Pickett by making this highlight video of his career and accomplishments.
Pickett wraps his career up with a record of 25-13. While that may not seem like an impressive record, it doesn’t tell his whole story. Pickett began his career in the London-based promotion Cage Rage, where he won the featherweight championship. He also won the Ultimate Challenge UK featherweight championship. Pickett is only one of two people to beat the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world, Demetrious Johnson. In the WEC/UFC, Pickett has earned seven performance bonuses. Basically, Brad Pickett has had himself a great career.
It’s nice to see the UFC honor Pickett for all of his contributions to the sport, even if it’s just a career retrospective video. They aren’t well known for their acknowledgment of people who are leaving the company. So this video is a nice little gesture to one of the first UK smaller weight fighters.
Pickett takes on Marlon Vera (8-3-1) this Saturday in London, on UFC Fight Pass.
