UFC 155 is stacking up to be one blockbuster of a card. On December 29th in Las Vegas, we’re going to see the heavyweight championship, a slew of other barn-burners, and now two of the hardest hitting fighters in the bantamweight division. Eddie Wineland (19-8-1, 1-2 UFC) will take on Brad “One Punch” Pickett (22-6, 2-1 UFC) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Wineland, a WEC alum like his future foe Pickett, is coming off a sizzling KO victory of Scott Jorgenson to avoid a 0-3 start in the UFC. Pickett, 3-1 in his last four fights (the lone loss to Renan Barao), has won two “Fight of the Night” bonuses and one “Knockout of the Night” award in his three UFC scraps.

This fight is likely to be a part of the preliminary cards and take place on either FX or Facebook before the main PPV card.
