UFC on FUEL 2 Results: Brad Pickett Finishes Damacio Page by Submission

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

In a performance that showcased a complete game, Brad Pickett overwhelmed Damacio Page, eventually finishing him with a rear naked choke at 4:05 of the second round in the UFC on FUEL 2 TV opener.

The win was Pickett's first in the UFC's octagon since joining the circuit from the WEC.

As is customary for him, Page got off to an aggressive start, looking to turn the fight into a brawl. Pickett was happy to engage him in that style, but had no problem shifting gears and using his wrestling to keep Page off-balance.

The end came late in the second. Pickett had hurt Page several times standing, and after a takedown, he battered him on the ground. Page found a way back to his feet, but Pickett rocked him with a right uppercut/left hook combo, and soon took his back, transitioning into a fight-ending rear naked choke.

"I come from a standup background as you can tell form my nickname 'One Punch,'" he said. But I always seem to manage to get submissions."

Pickett improved to 21-6 with the win while Page, who was fighting for the first time in over one year, fell to 12-7 with his third straight loss.
