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?


There really wasn't much for either Pico or Freeman to recover from so im not surprised by this..

3 months is plenty of time to recover from a knockout, but he didn't get knocked out. He was choked out. He got dropped by an upper cut but wasn't out from the shot.

Bellator is not giving up on Pico. Hopefully he wins this next fight.. I feel another loss could be catastrophic to his career..

Another loss would be bad but not catastrophic. He is still very young for the sport, has too much invested by the promoter to get only one "mulligan", and is too good a fighter to go 0-3 or 0-4. MMA is so much about what you've done lately that you're never more than one crowd-pleasing win away from getting back on the right track.

There are 7 or 9 other purple belt world champions who are licking their chops right now.

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.

Oh nice to see.    I don't believe he suffered any injury the previous time out, so this should be a good turn around for him.    No idea who the opponent is, but hopefully it's someone who he doesn't blow right by.  I'd like to see him get a good 10 minutes work and then get out of there.    Hopefully they keep him busy as he's climbing the ranks
