Aaron Pico will square off against Adam Borics at Bellator 222.
The featherweight pairing was initially confirmed by recently changed camps. Bellator 222 takes place at Madison Square Garden in New York on June 14 and is headlined by a light heavyweight clash pitting Chael Sonnen against Lyoto Machida.
The bout will be Pico’s first with Jackson-Wink MMA after the decorated amateur wrestler and boxer recently changed camps. The 22-year-old Californian had a four-fight winning streak snapped at Bellator 214, where he suffered a first-round knockout loss to Henry Corrales.
Borics, 25, has kicked off his professional tenure with eight consecutive victories. All three of his Bellator MMA triumphs have come inside the distance, including a third-round submission of Josenaldo Silva in his most recent outing at Bellator 205.
