Pickett to face Vera at UFC Fight Night 107

It was touch and go when it was revealed that Brad Pickett’s opponent would no longer be coming to the UK but Marlon Vera has stepped in to replace Henry Briones at UFC FIGHT NIGHT: MANUWA vs. ANDERSON, which takes place on Saturday, March 18 in London, England.

Vera (8-3-1; fighting out of Manabi, Ecuador) will take on Londoner Brad “One Punch” Pickett (26-13-0; fighting out of London, England), after Pickett’s scheduled opponent, Briones, was forced to pull out of the clash.

Pickett and Vera will meet on the main card of UFC FIGHT NIGHT®: MANUWA vs. ANDERSON, a bout which will mark the end of the professional fighting career of veteran and fan favourite Pickett.

UFC FIGHT NIGHT: MANUWA vs. ANDERSON will take place at The O2 in London and will be headlined by a five round light heavyweight bout between No. 4ranked Jimi “Poster Boy” Manuwa and No.7 ranked Corey “Overtime” Anderson.
