NBA Playoffs 2022: Phoenix Suns playoff schedule
Bellator featherweight Aaron Pico enjoys the fruits of his labor after a dominant performance at Bellator 277.
Bellator featherweight contender Aaron Pico overcame a slow start to his MMA career and is now nearing the top league of featherweight in the entire sport.
Pico scored what was arguably the most dominant win of his career at Bellator 277 over Adli Edwards. Pico asserted his will from the first minutes of the fight, using his technical boxing to overpower Edwards.
Pico could secure a title shot in his next fights after six straight wins in Bellator. During his Bellator 277 post-fight press conference, he explained his emotions following his recent winning streak.
“Obviously I want to fight ranked fighters and slowly work my way up to world champion,” said Pico. “Just keep improving yourself the way I am. I have a lot of fun, I like to train and it’s the best job I’ve ever had.”
Aaron Pico could be close to a Bellator title shot
When Pico joined Bellator 277, he had placements in four of his previous five wins, including against Aiden Lee at Bellator 260. After a whirlwind of hype early in his Bellator tenure, he overcame back-to-back losses to Adam Borics and Henry Corrales to bounce back come course.
A former college wrestling standout, Pico has continued to develop as a forward and has shown impressive pace on his feet.
25-year-old Pico possesses one of the most unique skills in all of MMA. While Bellator will most likely be making a trilogy between AJ McKee and Patricio ‘Pitbull’ Freire later this year, Pico could earn a shot at Bellator Gold sooner rather than later.
Bellator 277: AJ McKee vs. Patricio Pitbull 2 took place live from the SAP Center in San Jose, California on Friday, April 15, 2022. Follow FanSided MMA who will be on hand for all your news and highlights.
