After a misstep to begin his professional career, top mixed martial arts prospect Aaron Pico has been proving that he deserves all of the hype he received leading up to his debut.
On Saturday night at Bellator 192 at The Forum in Inglewood, CA, Pico once again delivered a devastating knockout due to strikes.
After backing Shane Krutchen against the cage, Pico dug a vicious left hook to the liver that sent his opponent crumbling to the mat just 37 seconds into the fight.
Check out the violent finish below:
Pico now improves to 2-1 in his professional career, with both wins coming by way of knockout. At Bellator 182 in September of last year, Pico one-punch KO'd Justin Linn for his first professional win.
