WOR: Bellator MMA president Scott Coker and rising star Aaron Pico

On the eve of one of the promotion's biggest nights of the year, our Dave Meltzer sat down with Bellator MMA president Scott Coker and rising star Aaron Pico (seen above) as they prepare for Saturday's Bellator 206 event in San Jose, CA, the first of their new partnership with streaming service DAZN.

Kicking off with Pico, Dave discussed his fight with Leandro Higo Saturday, recovering from his debut loss at Madison Square Garden, his skillset in various disciplines, his near miss of making the U.S. Olympic team as a wrestler, when he wants to get a title shot, and more.

At the 12:00 mark, Dave talks with Coker, someone he's known for years dating back to the Strikeforce days. The two discuss the DAZN deal, their focus on the UK market and the specific series, some potential matchmaking, the McKee family fighting on the same card in January, Saturday's San Jose show, and more.
