    Now that Ross Pearson is a retired legend, who do you think is the bigger English legend between the two?

    Never really get excited for a Ross fight
    But there was something special about Brad back in the day
    His fight with Barao was a classic

    Pickett had amazing fights in Cage Rage and WEC... Submitted a fool with a Pervian Necktie and KO'd a bunch more. He best Mighty Mouse ffs.

    Pearson is a UFC journeyman - I like Pearson, but he won't be remembered nearly as well as Pickett.

    Pickett was a lot better than Pearson

    I think Ross is slightly bigger, a good 10lb at least.

    Brad "One Punch" Pickett, one of the most inappropriate nicknames ever. 1 KO in 14 UFC fights. 7 KOs in 39 fights. One Punch indeed.

    My vote goes to Ross although props to Pickett for beating MM.

    Pickett for sure. If Woods becomes champ (I think he can) Pickett's legacy only increases

    Pickett, I think his wins were better and he was more exciting, not that Ross wasn't.

    Weird how the term legend has changed meanings.

    I'm sure they mean mediocre for UFC, which is completely true

    Preshow is filled with mediocrity. Almost anyone can make it to the UFC with proper coaching.

    Neither guy was a legend. I liked Ross better, but Pickett was probably the more talented fighter. I'm still irrationally salty against Pickett because Seary got robbed in their fight imo.

    That's not why he's named one punch though.
