UFC Bantamweight Brad Pickett is looking to get back in the win column when he climbs into the Octagon next Saturday night at UFC On Fuel TV 9: Gustafsson Vs Mousasi. Pickett is coming off of a split decision loss to Eddie Wineland at UFC 155, and is now set to face Mike Easton on the main card in the UFC’s second trip to Sweden. Picket recently broke down his opponent, and talked all about being the runner up for multiple title shots.
He told Sherdog:
“He’s very athletic and fast. He’s aggressive, but so am I. I tend to think I’m a bit more aggressive than he is. I think I have more punching power than he does and I don’t really back up in a fight. It will be interesting to see who controls the center of the cage.”
“If I win this fight, I go in one direction. If I lose this fight, I go in a different direction. I’m not really looking past Mike Easton. I’ve been in this boat so many times. When I fought Scott Jorgensen in the WEC and I lost the decision there, he went on and got a title shot. Then I fought Renan Barao. He beat me and he went on to get a title shot. Then I fought Eddie Wineland, and now he’s got a title shot. I seem to be there and thereabouts.”
“Even if I beat Mike Easton, I’m not right back in the picture. If I beat him in devastating fashion, maybe, but I need to beat him, beat him well and then maybe one other fight and then I’ll be back there. But I’m not looking at that too much. Winning always puts me in a good position. My job is just to keep winning.”
