Aaron Pico Defeats Lee Morrison via knockout in round one.
Aaron Pico would also have an early night inside the Bellator cage, as it only took 1:10 to defeat Lee Morrison. Both men came out of the gate swinging, and Morrison opened himself up to a knockdown when he went for a leg kick and would be caught by punch to the face by Pico.

Fitch would find away to get Daley to the ground in the midway point of round two, nearly stopping the fight with a few key strikes. Fitch looked to lock in a rear naked choke and tried to gas Daley out. Fitch would clearly win the second round and keep Daley on the ground.
