When you're talking about MMA rankings, the bantamweight bout between Brad Pickett and Yves Jabouin is one of the top fights to watch on the card. It also doesn't hurt the fight had Fight of the Night written all over it and it certainly didn't disappoint.

Brad Pickett goes by the nickname, "One Punch" and if you don't understand, watch his first round finish of Yves Jabouin on the main card of UFC on Fuel TV 5.

Here is what we learned from this fight.

What We'll Remember From This Fight:

When you are fighting in front of your home country, you want to put on a show. By show, I mean nasty knockout, which Pickett recorded tonight by way of one perfectly placed uppercut that sent Jabouin crashing to the mat.

What We Learned About Pickett:

With his power, Pickett is definitely a guy to watch at 135. He's got good speed and uses his range very well. If you're looking for a guy to keep an eye on in in the bantamweight division, look no further than Pickett.

What We Learned About Jabouin:

Jabouin has great speed and very good striking, but will need to improve his defense on his feet to contend in the division.

What's Next for Pickett:

Next for Pickett could fight against Bryan Caraway which would be a great test for both men and would show which is definite threat at 135.

What's Next for Jabouin:

Jabouin could find himself matched with Edwin Figueroa or Chico Camus.
