UFC FN 37: Newcomer Neil Seery Booked to Fight Brad Pickett
By FCF Staff
After the withdrawal of flyweight Ian McCall due to injury, the UFC has signed Ireland’s Neil Seery to take on Brad Pickett, March 8th. The bout will be part of UFC Fight Night 37, which will go down at London’s O2 Arena.
Seery (13-9) arrives in the UFC having four straight bouts. Since losing to UFC vet Phil Harris in 2010, the 34 year-old Seery has gone 6-1.
Pickett (23-8) is coming off second round, submission loss to bantamweight contender Michael McDonald in August, after decisioning Mike Easton last April. The 35 year-old British fighter is 3-2 in his last 5 scraps.
UFC FN 37 will be headlined by a light-heavyweight bout between Alexander Gustafsson and Jimi Manuwa.
