Matthew Wells says that fans need to stop treating Aaron Pico like a prospect. He’s a genuine contender and has been for a while.
Patrick Auger agrees and says this is the best Pico has ever looked. Fans can’t call Pico a rookie/prospect when he has more fights than Khamzat Chimaev and no one is calling him a prospect (more a rising star).
