Sources: Aaron Pico, Justin Gonzales agree for Bellator 271

Two of Bellator MMA's top featherweight prospects have agreed to meet at Bellator 271 on Nov. 12, multiple sources told ESPN on Thursday.

The promotion is finalizing a bout between Aaron Pico and Justin Gonzales for the event, which will take place at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The event will air on Showtime. Tickets are expected to go on sale next week.

Pico (8-3) will be seeking his second win of 2021 and fifth consecutive overall. The 25-year-old featherweight made his pro debut in 2017 under extremely high expectations, and got off to a somewhat disappointing 4-3 record. Fighting out of JacksonWink MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico, he has looked phenomenal during this win streak with four straight finishes.

Gonzales (12-0), of Greeley, Colorado, picked up a split decision win against Tywan Claxton in his Bellator debut in June. Gonzalez, 30, is undefeated since turning pro in 2016. He enjoyed a successful amateur career prior to that dating back to 2012.

A women's featherweight title fight between defending champion Cris "Cyborg" Justino and Sinead Kavanagh is slated as the main event of Bellator 271.
