A pair of featherweights boasting a string of stoppage wins are on a path to meet at Bellator 260, as a fight between Aaron Pico and Aiden Lee is in the works for the second time.

A Bellator official confirmed the booking to MMA Junkie after an initial report by ESPN on Tuesday.

Bellator 260 takes place June 11 at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. The card airs on Showtime after prelims on MMA Junkie.

Pico (7-3 MMA, 7-3 BMMA) and Lee (9-4 MMA, 2-1 BMMA) were originally targeted to fight April 16 at Bellator 257. However, Pico withdrew from the event due to undisclosed medical issues, and the fight was postponed.

Meanwhile, Lee is a former Cage Warriors title challenger who made his way to Bellator in 2019. After suffering a decision loss to Saul Rogers in his promotional debut, Lee has since bounced back with a submission win over Damian Frankiewicz and a knockout of Jeremy Petley.
