New, comments

Highly touted featherweight prospect Aaron Pico didn’t take long to put away Shane Kruchten at Bellator 192.

When Aaron Pico made his heavily hyped professional MMA debut last year, he suffered a quick submission loss to Zach Freeman. Pico rebounded with a beautiful left hook KO of Justin Linn, and at Bellator 192 on Saturday night, the 21-year-old once again showed his powerful boxing.

Facing off against veteran Shane Kruchten, Pico needed just a single shot to the body to fold Kruchten up, and the fight was called off after just 37 seconds. Check out the video below.

Here’s Brent Brookhouse’s play-by-play for Bloody Elbow:

Round 1 - Body shot by Pico absolutely crushes Kruchten and that’s the fight, folks. A beautiful, brutal left hand to the body was all it took for Pico to get the victory.

Official Result: Aaron Pico def. Shane Kruchten via knockout (body punch) - Round 1, 0:37

Expect Pico to be a major part of Bellator MMA’s events throughout 2018, and his two wins have been sensational.
