Brad Pickett picked up a fan-voted Webby Award nomination for his professional website/blog.
This British fighter is settling for a Webby Award until he can get his hands on the bantamweight championship belt.
The 17th Annual Webby Awards honor all things great on the internet. It is presented by The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences. Pickett and his business partner, Tommy, were nominated for “Best Personal Website/Blog” for their UFC bantamweight official website, onepunchpickett.com.
Pickett’s website is a living documentary of his fighting career. Tommy has a vision to take away the misconceptions about MMA fighters, some being that they are arrogant, anitsocial and barbaric Of course he also wants to brand Pickett as one of “the” elite athletes in MMA. His attempts have not been in vain as it has definitely gotten attention.
“Tommy really understood who I am in and outside of the cage. I really love what they have created for me. The best part is it being able to talk to my fans through my website and seeing them wearing the ‘One Punch’ logo.”
Now it’s up to the fans to vote on his Webby nomination. He’ll be going up against four others : I’m a Project Manager, Dubfire, Daily Dishonesty and Ladylike. The winner will be announced on April 30.
Pickett is ranked number 6 in bantamweight rankings and has as record 3-1 from his past four fights.
What do you think of his website? Worthy of a Webby Award?
