It may have been Brad Pickett’s last fight of his career at UFC London, which, incidentally, ended in brutally heartbreaking fashion as a kick to the head from his opponent Marlon Vera put paid to his hopes of a fairytale ending to his UFC career, but it is Marc Diakiese who will take the plaudits and highlight reel footage for his startlingly fast dismantling of Finnish fighter Teemu Packalen inside 30 seconds.
Diakiese’s nickname is the Bonecrusher, so you couldn’t say that Packalen didn’t have prior warning that this may well be the eventuality of the bout, and just in case there was any doubt, Diakiese talked strategy with UFC.com beforehand, telling them of the tactics he would emply to “finish” his opponent.
“He’s tall, likes to grapple and comes forward uncontrolled,” he told UFC.com, “which I’m looking to use to get the finish. And if he doesn’t come forward, I’m still looking to finish him anyway.”
