Since making his UFC debut in November of 2011, Brad “One Punch” Pickett has consistently proven to fans that win or lose they can expect fireworks whenever he steps into the Octagon. In his six UFC appearances to date, all as a Bantamweight, Pickett has earned five post-fight awards – four for Fight of the Night and one for Knockout of the Night. After putting together a 3-3 record in the UFC, Pickett is slated to make his Flyweight debut with the organization in early 2014.

Another champion was revealed as well, this time, the ‘baddest man on the planet’, heavyweight title holder Cain Velasquez. Sitting on the shelf to rehab an injury, Velasquez hasn’t fought this year but plans on a late 2014 return to continue his run of dominance.

Rapidly making a case for himself as the most dominant Heavyweight to ever step inside the Octagon, “The Baddest Man on the Planet”, Cain Velasquez doesn’t look to be letting go of his title anytime soon. An outstanding wrestler who can also throw leather with best in the world, Velasquez sets himself apart from his opponents thanks to a seemingly bottomless gas tank that allows him to push the pace and overwhelm the opposition far into the championship rounds. Since reclaiming the belt from Junior Dos Santos and avenging the only loss of his career at the end of 2012, Velasquez has been unstoppable in each of his ensuing appearances.
