Patricio Pitbull and Eddie Alvarez were among the pros reacting to Aaron Pico’s knockout loss at Bellator 214 on Saturday.

Bellator 214 was going smooth up until the co-main event. You could say the main card was going exactly the way the promotion wanted it to. Adel Altamimi won a submission victory in his promotional debut. The Iraqi has a rags-to-riches, triumph-over-terror story that would make a great movie. And he had Chris Pratt cornering him. No joke.

Then Jake Hager, a.k.a. Jack Swagger, made his MMA debut, and looked better than anyone expected. Yet, he was fighting a 1-1 journeyman with more unsanctioned fights than sanctioned ones, but a 1-1 fighter is exactly the level of competition he should have been facing.

And he smoked him, getting the takedown, dropping elbows, and submitting J.W. Kiser with an arm-triangle choke. Not a bad debut for the WWE star.

So coming to the main event, the stage was set for Aaron Pico to do his thing. And he did, at least at first. Scored an uppercut that knocked down Henry Corrales. But Corrales got back up, and seconds later, he had knocked Pico out cold.

The blue chip prospect had suffered the second loss of his career. He’ll be back, for on Saturday, it was Corrales’ night. See the pros react to the finish below!
