Wow! Is it typical for MMA fighters to compete again so soon? Especially after getting knocked out, it doesn't seem like enough time to recover, train and prepare for the next opponent.
Does this imply that Pico's next match will be a gimme for him?
The length of time he is required to be out after a fight depends on what if any suspension he receives following his post fight medical exam. If they clear him to fight then he is eligible to return to the cage quickly. Most suspensions are handed out due to knockouts, cuts requiring major stitches, or a break of some sort. In most cases a being choked out would not required a suspension, unless some rare situations happened as a result (out for a long time, seizure, issues that persist for the next couple hours or days.
