Brad Pickett discusses KO loss: 'The younger me would've chewed that [kick] up'
Tom Taylor - March 19, 2017
Last night, on the main card of the UFC’s latest trip to London, UK MMA legend Brad Pickett stepped onto the canvas for a final time. His opponent in this retirement fight was late-replacement Marlon “Chito” Vera, a young but dangerous out for pretty much any fighter in the division. Though Pickett won the first two rounds of the fight, and seemed to be in control heading into the third, his retirement fight was ultimately spoiled by a beautiful, late-fight head-kick from the young Vera. In the wake of this fight, Pickett joined the media for a short press conference to discuss his failed retirement fight, sharing his belief that, were he a little younger, he would have absorbed Vera’s fight-ending strike without issue.

And it just feels right to do it in [Sacramento] in this new arena. It just feels like the right time and the right place. I’ve been waiting for this new arena to be built, I was waiting for that Dominick Cruz opportunity, and I feel like this is going to be an epic event and I can’t wait to do it in front of the people I love.”
