Pickett went on record as stating he was considering a drop down to 125 pounds after a fairly successful run at bantamweight including wins over Mike Easton, Ivan Menjivar, and Demetrious Johnson. If he can slim down in a healthy manner I’m all for the move. He’s 35, so it could be tough, but Pickett’s never been a huge 135er so flyweight certainly seems within his reach and the division could definitely use his presence.
Welcome back to the 10-Point Must! Every week I’ll give my thoughts on ten topics from the past seven days with hopes the readership will contribute their takes as well in the Comments section. This time around, subjects range from a few fighters looking to change divisions to fallout from recent events to a couple of clashes booked for the coming weeks/months.
