Brad PickettAt UFC on Fuel TV 5, bantamweight Brad “One Punch” Pickett lived up to his nickname in his home country.  After a back-and-forth start, Pickett picked up a devastating knockout victory over Yves Jabouin in Nottingham, England.

Early on, Pickett was looking sharp with his boxing and got inside, but Jabouin countered with some solid knees.  Pickett later landed a huge uppercut and followed with two hard shots on the ground.

The official time for the knockout came at 3:40 into the first round.

Now, with the knockout win over Jabouin, Pickett moves his record to 2-1 in the UFC with an impressive 22-6 record overall.  The Brit knew going into this fight that he had a nickname to live up to and holds his head up high that he lived up to the name against such a technical striker.

“With a name like One Punch, there’s some added pressure on me, especially since that’s my first stoppage in a long time,” Pickett said post-fight.  “I’d get chokes and submissions and stuff, but to get a knockout against to be honest technically the best striker in our division is phenomenal.”
