MMA: Bellator NYC-Pico vs Freeman Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports

Bellator NYC saw its fair share of upsets, including a spoiled debut for the highly scouted wrestling standout Aaron Pico, thanks to a swift 24 second club and sub at the hands of Zach Freeman. In the middle of throwing a jab-cross combo, Pico was clobbered with a well timed right uppercut from Freeman, which floored the debuting fighter. Freeman immediately dove on the neck, locking up a Guillotine and finishing the move from half guard. Although Pico did tap out, he fell unconscious as Freeman released the hold. What a tough debut for the super hyped up prospect!
