Zach Freeman threw a massive spanner in the works tonight at Bellator NYC by tapping out the much hyped Aaron Pico in just 24 seconds.
Pico immediately trying to close the distance, but Freeman threatens with a knee.
They both look to throw and Pico gets stunned by an uppercut and Freeman immediately goes for a guillotine and drops to the mat with it.
Freeman is working a tight d’arce choke and that’s it, Pico is forced to tap-out and Freeman has just produced a massive upset, ruining the debut of Bellator’s most hotly tipped young prospect in a matter of just 24 seconds!!
In retrospect both Pico and Bellator may well regret putting the 0-0 Pico up against an experienced fighter like Freeman, who holds a 9-2 MMA record and was only too happy to give the youngster a rude awakening to life inside the cage.
