Brad Pickett might not be a name that strikes a chord with you right away, especially if you didn't watch the WEC. The 32-year-old British bantamweight might be nicknamed "One Punch", but he has a slick submission game to go along with his heavy hands. He was scheduled to face Miguel Torres in his UFC debut at UFC 130, but had to pull out due to a back injury which has kept him on the shelf for a while now.

I don't care who Pickett fights, I just want to see him back in the cage. He's a great example of why Bantamweight is such a fun weight class.

niggly hitches?

Kick Cruz in the nuts and then KO him, that's how you beat him.

Its really a shame Pickett hasnt made his debut in the ufc yet. He's definately top of the division and beat Mighty Mouse last year I believe. Also, he would be a legit rep for UK mma.

The thing is, I don't see anybody beating Cruz for a long, long time.

Brad Pickett has been one of my favorite fighters ever since the peruvian necktie. He's always fun to watch and there's not a lot of people who really don't like him. Just wish he was more well-known...
