UFC on Fuel TV 9 Results: Brad Pickett Edges Mike Easton With Strong Boxing/Wrestling Attack


Eddie Wineland vs Brad Pickett UFC 155Although Brad Pickett is known for his one-punch power, it was the Brit’s wrestling skills that secured victory at UFC on Fuel TV 9 on Saturday in Stockholm.

Pickett and Mike Easton went toe-to-toe, displaying their striking skills at the Ericsson Globe Arena, and Pickett’s boxing certainly kept him ahead in the fight, but it was his wrestling that made it possible.

Easton is a strong bantamweight, but Pickett stuffed the majority of his takedowns, and used his own to plant Easton on the mat several times in the bout. And whenever they did hit the mat, Pickett either brought the fight back to his comfort zone on the feet, or outwrestled Easton on the mat.

Pickett utilized his jab throughout the fight to try and set up the uppercut for the knockout, but had to settle for outstriking Easton en route to a 30-27, 30-27, 28-29 split decision victory.

The victory got Pickett back on track after losing a split decision to Eddie Wineland to close out 2012, but true to his nature, the Brit didn’t put anyone on his hit list.

“I’m not here to call people out, (but) I’d always love an opponent like Mike Easton.”
