Formula solution would probably be too much unless VBA is used.

Other simpler alternative would be:
1. Copy DATA column to RESULTS column
2. Select RESULTS column
3. Invoke "Find and Replace"
4. In Find field, put "[*]" without quotes.
5. Keep replace field blank.
6. Choose Replace all...

= IFERROR(TRIM(REPLACE(A1, FIND(" [", A1), FIND("]", A1) - FIND(" [", A1) + 1, "")), A1)
Note: A1 is the cell containing the data i.e., ABC [2.5], JKB [23.3]

This formula works for the single [ ]. It doesn't work for multiple [ ].
