Gallery Photos: Best of Aaron Pico view 18 images Leandro Higo is ready to crush the hype around Aaron Pico at Bellator 206. Many were surprised when earlier this week news surfaced that Bellator booked Higo (18-4 MMA, 1-2 BMMA), a recent bantamweight title challenger in the promotion, against highly touted featherweight prospect Pico (3-1 MMA, 3-1 BMMA), who has just four professional fights. It’s a hefty step up in competition for Pico, who, after stumbling in his pro debut in June 2017, has reeled off three consecutive highlight-reel knockouts inside the Bellator cage. He now has the chance to prove his worth against Higo, but the Brazilian isn’t worried about being a stepping stone. Related UFC champ T.J.
