Henry Corrales stunned the mixed martial arts (MMA) world last night (Sat., Jan. 26, 2019) after he knocked out Aaron Pico in the very first round in the co-main event of Bellator 214 in Los Angeles Calif., handing Pico just his second loss in mixed martial arts (MMA).

Naturally, the MMA world was tuning in, including Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) color commentator Joe Rogan, who was hosting a special Bellator edition of Fight Companion, a podcast he usually conducts with a few of his buddies for UFC events he isn’t calling.
Known for his priceless reactions following an upset, Rogan had another one last night after Corrales came back from the brink of defeat to knockout Pico. Seconds prior to delivering the crushing right hand that put the former Olympic-hopeful out for the count, Henry found himself on the ground after eating a huge uppercut from the talented striker.
Once he was able to shake off the cobwebs, Corrales stood in the pocket and managed to sneak in a shot that stunned Pico on his feet before connecting a two-piece to seal the deal. The upset KO also had Brendan Schaub falling out of his chair, as evidenced in the video player above.
The loss is Aaron’s second under the Bellator banner, which will now slow his momentum after gaining some traction following his debut loss back in 2017. As for Corrales, that is now his fifth straight win after starting his Bellator MMA career with three straight defeats. And by the looks of it, “OK” is ready to become a legit a star for Coker and Co.
