Some bantamweight action has been thrown in the mix for UFC on Fuel TV 9, which takes place at the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden, as Brad Pickett and Mike Easton battle to work their way back into contention.
Pickett (22-7) is coming off of a UFC 155 loss to former champion Eddie Wineland. Prior to the defeat, “One Punch” took home stoppage victories over Yves Jabouin and Damacio Page.
Easton (13-2) most recently suffered his first loss since 2007 at the hands of Raphael Assuncao, who took home a unanimous decision at UFC on Fox 5. The loss snapped an eight-fight win-streak for “The Hulk”, who has had his hand raised against Byron Bloodworth, Jared Papazian, and Ivan Menjivar inside the octagon.
