INGLEWOOD, Calif. – MMA super prospect Aaron Pico showed again that his debut loss was nothing more than a stumble when he scored another devastating knockout at Bellator 192.
Pico (2-1 MMA, 2-1 BMMA) followed up his “Knockout of the Year” candidate in his previous bout with a crushing body-shot finish just 37 seconds into the opening round of his fight against Shane Kruchten (12-4 MMA, 0-1 BMMA).
The bout featherweight fight was part today’s Bellator 192 main card. It took place at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., and aired on Paramount following prelims on MMAjunkie.
Pico wasted no time inflicting damage on his opponent. He put the pressure on Kruchten with hard shots before going to the body for the first time to drop his opponent.
Kruchten showed his toughness by getting back to his feet, but that just allowed Pico another chance to wind up with another huge left hand that folded his foe to the canvas.
With more hype building behind the 21-year-old following highlight-reel wins in consecutive fights, Pico chose to stay humble.
“I’m not the one to talk (expletive) and do all that stuff, that’s petty,” Pico said. “I’m a professional, I show up. I fight guys with winning records. I do my talking with my fists.
