Aaron Pico Gets Redemption with Savage KO Punch at Bellator 183

Steven Rondina@srondinaFeatured ColumnistSeptember 23, 2017

Aaron Pico badly needed to win at Bellator 183. The wrestling standout was given a massive push for his MMA debut at the Bellator NYC pay-per-view event but was upset by no-namer Zach Freeman in just 24 seconds. His sophomore fight wasn't just about winning...it was about erasing fans' memories of that embarrassing flop. 

And boy, did he do that. 

Facing Justin Linn, Pico capped an exciting fight with a Knockout of the Year candidate, officially taking the win at 3:45 of the first round.

While he is still something of an unknown commodity in MMA, he certainly lived up to his status as the sport's hottest prospect. Look for him to get back in the cage this holiday season.
