This one is pretty spectacular. Cue the slow-motion fall.
Aaron Pico has had the kind of hype around him that can smother a young fighter. He made his professional debut on Bellator’s PPV and lost in 24 seconds. It was a shocking defeat and people questioned the “can’t miss” label attached to Pico. Tonight was Pico’s 21st birthday, and he gave himself one heck of a present.
Tonight he had his second chance to perform on the big stage and he certainly made the most of it. In the first round of his fight with Justin Linn, he hit Linn with a left hand that had Linn out cold before he hit the mat. Linn fell in super slow motion as well, which added to the drama of the knockout. Give it a look, see for yourself. Aaron Pico has arrived ladies and gentlemen.
