I like Pickett and he can deff be a force at Flyweight . But with what has just happened I think Creepy is going to be looking for a little Ultra Violence and might just make a massacre of Brad !

England is the size of a state so you can see where we're coming from!

I can see that, I would definitely root for a fighter from my state, but just because we have such a small population.

I think it's more due to the fact MMA has a low profile in the UK and we have a limited amount of fighters. Obviously us Brits are patriotic for our fighters, but the reasons why Americans often root for fighters of different nationality over theirs is because they're so used to seeing their own represent the USA in the UFC.

Regardless of what he meant, there's no need to bring up SDR's passing. Totally unnecessary.

That's because you're an American with no real concept of international rivalries in Sport. Brits tend to cheer for Brits, in fact all people tend to support their countryman etc. Except Americans it would seem. If it's a Brit against an Aussie or kraut, I cheer for the Brit. Englishman against a Taff or Jock, I cheer for the Englishman. Guy from my town against a guy from yours, I cheer for the guy from mine. It's all about identity I suppose, good and the bad. Not just picking the guy you think is best and supporting him. To each their own though. I like Creepy too but he's against a fellow Englishman and a damn fine one at that, so I hope he gets his head launched into row Z.

The quickness of any flyweight could be problematic for a power puncher like Pickett. But obviously he's a stout challenger.I got Creepy!!
