VIDEO: Aaron Pico’s knockouts look incredibly more brutal in super slow-mo

Aaron Pico was a super prospect who signed with Bellator before his 18th birthday, expected to set the MMA world ablaze. And while his professional career got off to a rocky start, he’s been on fire since 2020.

After a 4-3 start to his career, which included being finished three times, Pico turned things around once he left his Team Body Shop home in Southern California to join famed Jackson Wink MMA in Albuquerque, N.M. Since that move, Pico has won six fights in a row with five finishes, including some of the most impressive work we’ve seen from the now 26-year-old.
