"He's got a bit of counter punching background. He keeps his hands low and tries to catch you coming in to hit him because his hands are low and he counter punches you. He's got dangerous power and he hits really hard. I wouldn't call him an aggressive fighter but he's very dangerous and patient. He's not looking to come forward, he's gonna look for me to come forward which I'm prepared to do. He's gonna try to make me miss and hit me. He hits hard but in striking, you want to box a brawler and brawl a boxer. He'll want to box me and I'll want to brawl him. For me, it's not like I'm just a brawler. My coaches call it 'controlled chaos.' You go hard and stuff, but I'm not just going wild and leaving myself wide open. I know what I want to do and he knows what I want to do and it's just a case of who actually implements their gameplan successfully." -Brad Pickett via MMAMania
British bantamweight Brad Pickett will be ready to unleash his "controlled chaos" on Eddie Wineland this upcoming Saturday night at UFC 155 - a strategy that former WEC champion Wineland will surely welcome with his counter striking skills.
Though at first glance, it might appear as if Pickett were voluntarily falling into Wineland's trap, Pickett believes the best way to fight a boxer is to brawl with them and not allow them to be too technical.
Pickett is coming off of a highlight-reel knockout victory over Yves Jabouin at UFC on Fuel TV 5 as seen below:
