Aaron Pico Wants to Avenge Losses, Following Bellator 260 Win: “I Just Didn’t Know What Was Going On”
By FCF Staff
Following his one-sided win at Bellator 260 on Friday, Aaron Pico explained why he hopes to avenge his losses next.
The featherweight faced Aiden Lee on the main card, and dominated the action with his wrestling. In round three, Pico secured a fight-ending, anaconda choke.
The victory was the 24-year-old’s fourth in a row, since he dropped back-to-back fights to Henry Corrales and Adam Borics in 2019. While speaking about his future plans, after his latest win, Pico reported the following (quotes via MMA Junkie).
“These guys, Henry Corrales, Zack Freeman, Adam Borics, they fought me when I knew nothing about the game,” Pico said. “I mean, I laugh at the stuff I used to think about before a fight.
“I was so scared going into a fight before. I would have to get pumped, grab my balls, flake those motherf*ckers, and step in the cage. I was so scared. I just didn’t know what was going on. I was so new. But yeah, I want to fight those guys. I’m a different person, a different fighter. I’m evolving.”
Pico was signed by Bellator in 2014, despite the fact he had no professional MMA bouts on his resume. Due to his wrestling and Pankration credentials, the Californian fighter was widely considered to be one of the top prospects in MMA.
With the win on Friday, Pico moved his overall record to 8-3.
