Pros also react to Pico’s win:
Be on the lookout for @patriciopitbull to make a scene and act like he wants to fight Pico after Higo loses. It’s par for the course but he won’t actually step up and fight any of the men he threatens. #Bellator206 #dogowner

Is a very tough fight for Leandro Hugo. Aron Pico comes with everything, a very athletic and complete face. I think Igor's chace is on the floor, in jiujitsu. but fight is fight. I'm watching. #Bellator206
