Bow native named on initial bill for March 18 event

Bow boy Brad Pickett is set for an emotional farewell at The O2 Arena on March 18 after the initial card for UFC Fight Night London was announced.

The 38-year-old will fight Mexican Henry Briones in London in what will be Pickett’s final bout before retirement.

After excelling at a young age in football, an injury turned Pickett to combat sports and his passion in what, at that time, was a relatively unknown movement.

With knockout power and an exciting fighting style, Pickett fast rose up the ranks and became a fan favourite in the UFC as well as a pioneer for British MMA.
