In the 243 events that have taken place under the banner of Bellator MMA, many a prospect has taken center stage and been baptized by MMA’S fire. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will be introduced to a steely-eyed falcon looking to settle atop his lofty perch as one prospect you do not want to cross at featherweight. A professional mixed martial artist since January 2017 and representing Jackson-Wink MMA, Aaron Pico owns a 6-3 record in nine professional bouts comprised of five knockouts and one submission. Pico has spent his entire career as a professional mixed martial artist with Bellator MMA thus far and has finished all six of his victories with the bulk of those finishes coming within the first round and one making into round two. Pico has yet to make it on to the scorecards during his tenure as a pro-MMA fighter so far.
In his second appearance with Bellator MMA at Bellator 183, he faced Justin Linn and went on to knock him out in the first round. Pico also knocked out Shane Krutchen in round one at Bellator 192. Then at Bellator 199, he defeated Lee Morrison via TKO in the first round. Pico defeated Brazilian submission specialist Leandro Higo at Bellator 206 via TKO in round number one. He knocked out Daniel Carey in the second round at Bellator 238 to pick up his fifth knockout win as a professional.
For his next outing under the Bellator MMA banner at Bellator 242, Pico took on Solo Hatley Jr and tapped him out in the first round via rear-naked choke. The win earned Pico the first and only submission victory of his professional career thus far With six finishes out of nine forays thus far in the ranks of the professionals, this bird of the blue sky has Bellator MMA hitting the bullseye!
