Say this for UFC bantamweight Brad Pickett: the guy's not kidding himself.

When asked by Ariel Helwani on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour if he thought his fight with Renan Barao would be so high up on the UFC 138 main card if the event wasn't in Pickett's home country, the British fighter initially replied, "Maybe, maybe not." Then came a more sober analysis.

"Probably not," he said. While he'd like to believe that he's main card material, he added, it sure doesn't hurt to have the Octagon in your own backyard for one night.

No, but you should worry about his ground game.

Pickett has this fight as long as he fights smart. He's gonna be hard to submit from the bottom and Berao tends to be inactive when he shouldnt. I expect the standup to be competitive but for Pickett to win in the clinch and take a decision.
