It means the world; it’s been my dream since I was 17; it will provide my family with a better life - Says Mike of his UFC career
Stockholm, Sweden (PRWEB) April 04, 2013
Mike "The Hulk" Easton, Washington DC native, will be fighting Brad Pickett this weekend at UFC on Fuel TV 9 in Stockholm, Sweden. Mike will be representing Team Lloyd Irvin in his 5th fight in the UFC.
The Hulk is 13-2 (3-1 UFC) in his MMA career with notable wins over John Dodson, Chase Beebe, and Ivan Menjivar. A well-rounded fighter, Mike Easton loves to out-strike and out-box his opponents. Don't be fooled though, a stellar defensive wrestler, Mike is also a Black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under Master Lloyd Irvin.
Despite heavy criticism surrounding his coach and team, Mike Easton has continued to represent Team Lloyd Irvin, although he spent this fight camp in San Diego training with Dominic Cruz, Eric Del Fierro and Alliance MMA.
This match against Brad Pickett has the potential to really turn things up in the Hulk's UFC career. He came out to a roaring start with a KO of Byron Bloodworth and earning decisions over Jared Papazian and Ivan Mejivar. However, a unanimous decision loss to Raphael Assuncao has Mike itching to get back into the win column.
Will Mike be able to overcome the high-level wrestler in Brad Pickett? Or will Pickett succum to the strikes and submission prowess of the Hulk?
Find out this Saturday, April 5 at 2pm EST on Fuel TV.
