Top-5 ranked featherweights Aaron Pico and Pedro Carvalho will head to Ireland for a meeting at Bellator 299. The event takes place September 23 from Dublin and the 3Arena.

In the main event, Johnny Eblen defends his middleweight championship against top contender Fabian Edwards. Mads Burnell vs. Daniel Weichel has also been announced for the Showtime main card.

Aaron Pico Looks To Go 2-For-2 In 2023

Southern California’s Pico will return to the cage for the second time in 2023 when he makes the walk in September, looking to parlay his one-sided decision victory in April with another win, which would be his eighth in nine outings.

A product of Jackson’s MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the 26-year-old Pico has made it clear his time for a shot at Patricio Pitbull’s title is imminent, and a win over Carvalho would only further his case.

Pedro Carvalho Presents Another Challenge

Recently making the decision to re-sign, the 10-fight veteran of the promotion has fought against the top names the featherweight division has to offer since his debut in 2018. With heritage from both Portugal and Ireland, “The Game” will need to be on his “A-game” to secure a win over the well-rounded prowess of his September 23- opponent.

Carvalho has proven to be a tough matchup for all comers, defeating the likes of Daniel Weichel and Mads Burnell in recent outings.
