Star prospect Aaron Pico could be facing a lengthy time on the sidelines after his win against Lee Morrison at Bellator 199.

Pico, who used a left hook to the body and follow-up punches to dispatch Morrison 1:10 into the first round of their featherweight bout at the SAP Center in San Jose, Calif., on Saturday night, must receive medical clearance for a probable left-hand fracture or he will be suspended for 180 days. The California State Athletic Commission released a list of medical suspensions to MMAFighting.com on Wednesday.
