Patricio “Pitbull” Freire will look to avenge the only loss of his career starting this March on MTV2 as the dynamic 23-year old has been announced as part of the field competing during Bellator’s fourth season in hopes of eventually facing 145-pound champion Joe Warren. Warren narrowly outpointed Freire in the final of a Season 2 tournament.
“I have no interest besides fighting as a professional,” explained Freire in a press release. “It’s the only thing I really want to do. Every day in my life I am looking to overcome myself and evolve into a better fighter. I never believe that I am good enough. It’s all about improvement, every single day.”
“The time to show what I am all about is coming,” he continued. “To win this tournament would mean a dream coming true. I can honestly say that I am more confident for this season than I was last year. Last year I got close, this year it’s mine!”
Freire is 14-1 in his career with seven submissions and four TKOs. He holds a win over fellow Season 4 tournament participant Wilson Reis, as well as a first round submission over William Romero, inside the Bellator cage.
Other fighters named to the group competing for a title-shot include Kenny Foster, Georgi Karakhanyan, Daniel Straus, Zac George, , and Eric Larkin.
