Ahead of top Bantamweight prospect Thomas Almeida‘s clash with Cody Garbrandt tonight, the UFC have made available his full fight with English veteran Brad Pickett available for free, to give unfamiliar fans a taste of what they can expect.
Almedia had to overcome adversity when he clashed with ‘One Punch’ at UFC 189 last year. The 24 year-old Chute Box product was nearly taken out of the game by the Englishman’s notrious punching power in the first round, but recovered to triumph with a thunderous flying knee which landed flush on his opponent’s chin in the second.
Almeida is presently 20-0 and on a four fight win-streak in the UFC. A decisive win over fellow undefeated prospect Garbrandt would surely propel the Brazilian into title contention, despite his relative youth.
