LOS ANGELES –  Aaron Pico has been guided into Bellator 286 by an all-star cast of names. Pico (10-3 MMA, 10-3 BMMA), who meets Jeremy Kennedy in a key bantamweight bout on tonight’s card at Long Beach Arena in Long Beach, Calif., has had no shortage of positive influence going into a bout he believes could secure him a title shot for the first time. Although he’s no stranger with working with decorated names, the lead-up to Bellator 278, which airs on Showtime following prelims on MMA Junkie, has been something especially unique. Pico’s coach Brandon Gibson connected him with former interim UFC welterweight champion Carlos Condit , who was very close throughout training camp. “Carlos and coach Gibson are very, very close – like brothers – and I just said, ‘Hey, listen.

Work with Carlos Condit, Tony Ferguson and Jon Jones has Aaron Pico in best form for Bellator 286
