UFC Quick Quote: Brad Pickett has discovered the recipe for getting his ass kicked

Foreword by Chef Ian McCall.

"I'm at a 50-percent ratio so far of getting bonuses. He's only going to add to that. Hopefully I can get a finish in this fight and get a 'Knockout' or 'Submission of the Night,' instead of the 'Fight of the Night.' Or if it's good, I could get both of them. Get some kind of finish out of it. $100,000 is $100,000. It's a nice thing to have in the bank. I know what he wants to do. He's going to come out and try to knock my head off. Him coming down to 25s, that's not always a recipe for revamping your career. You weren't the fastest bantamweight in the world and you're coming down to a division where speed is king. It's kind of a recipe for getting your ass kicked, if you ask me."

Former bantamweight banger Brad Pickett has just discovered the secret recipe for getting his ass kicked, and it just so happens to involve his drop to flyweight at the upcoming UFC Fight Night 37 event, which is set to go down inside the O2 Arena in London, England, on March 8, 2014 (details). That's according to Ian McCall, who has the honor of welcoming "One Punch" to the 125-pound division. "Uncle Creepy" also tells MMA Fight Corner (via Bloody Elbow) that Pickett -- who he alleges wasn't that fast to begin with -- is going to make him a wealthy man, which if my math (and his bonus prediction) is correct, would buy him an 83-year subscription to the promotion's new "Fight Pass" digital network, which is the only way you can find out if McCall can deliver the proverbial goods.
