Bellator has signed a number of stud wrestlers fresh off the mats, but few have been as heralded as Aaron Pico.
Too bad Pico got submitted in 24 seconds in his debut.
Since then, the poor kid is in a constant state of trying to live that initial failure down. He did well in his second Bellator fight, knocking out Justin Linn in less than a round. And then there was Bellator 192 on Saturday night, where Pico got to face an over-matched Shane Krutchen.
How over-matched was Krutchen? The ref said “go”, Pico came forward, punched Krutchen in the liver, and Krutchen was more or less a pile of dead flesh on the canvas.
Thirty-seven seconds was all it took. Pico is getting closer to erasing that disastrous debut.
Results: Aaron Pico def. Shane Krutchen via TKO (Punches) at :37, R1
