More bouts are coming through for UFC Stockholm 2013, with the UK’s Brad Pickett taking on Mike Easton in April.
UFC Stockholm 2013: Gustafsson vs. Mousasi is shaping up to be a high-level night of fights, with tremendous matchups already coming through.
Another has been added to the mix, with top UK bantamweight Brad ‘One Punch’ Pickett set to take on American Mike Easton. Both fighters have verbally agreed to the matchup at this stage.
Pickett (22-7) has been one of the UFC’s most consistently exciting performers since moving over from the WEC in 2011. Although his 2-2 record in that time may not look the most impressive on paper, he has finished two high-level opponents and lost in entertaining battles with Eddie Wineland and interim champion Renan Barao.
Pickett has picked up fight night bonuses in three out of four of these UFC outings, and also went three from four in the WEC, with wins over Ivan Menjivar, and current UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson.
After suffering a split decision loss last time out, he’ll be hoping to get back on the winning track. However, Easton (13-2) is a very tough adversary, with good wrestling and a BJJ black belt.
Easton also dropped his last bout via decision to Raphael Assuncao, but prior to that he had three straight victories in the UFC.
With the tempo both of these guys can push, it serves as an earlt FOTN contender for the card in Stockholm, Sweden on April 6th.
