Kruchten confirmed the featherweight matchup via Twitter following an initial report from Bellator 192 takes place at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif., on Jan 20 and is headlined by a welterweight championship tilt between Douglas Lima and Rory MacDonald.

Pico came up short in his heavily-hyped MMA debut, as he was shockingly submitted just 24 seconds into his Bellator: NYC showdown with Zach Freeman.

Kruchten, 33, enters the matchup with a 12-3 career mark. “The War Rhino” last appeared at World Series of Fighting 34, where he outpointed Jeremy Mahon. The 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu representative has finished six of his victories via submission and three by KO/TKO.
