Patricio "Pitbull" Freire Would Like to Fight Again by March
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 02.14.2013



MMAjunkie spoke with Patricio "Pitbull" Freire who spoke about wanting to return to the cage quickly after his recent loss in a featherweight title fight against Pat Curran. Pitbull is open to fighting from 135 to 170. Here are some highlights from the interview:

Freire on wanting to fight again soon after the Curran fight: "I'm clear-minded and focused. I simply wish to keep fighting...After my last victory in May of 2011, I underwent hand surgery and ultimately ended up waiting 20 months to face Pat Curran. Ours was a fierce fight. I pushed the pace for all five rounds despite being on the receiving end of some headbutts. I pressed the champion, and the result was a split decision. Since I was coming from a period of inactivity, I feel I can do better in a rematch if I could regain my fighting rhythm...I want to bring Bellator's attention to the fact that our fight broke viewership records in both the U.S. and in Brazil. I'm not asking for any sort of compensation, other than to be booked for another fight as soon as possible."

Freire on his next fight: "I would love an immediate rematch against Curran. But it's not going to happen because (Season 6 tourney winner) Daniel Straus is next. In my opinion, even though Curran is the champion, he won by split decision, so that leaves something to be desired. Since Curran is booked, my other choice is Warren, who is the only other fighter to get a win over me. I have already asked to fight Warren, but I didn't get it because he's not leaving the bantamweight class. So, I have no problem losing the weight and meeting him at his preferred weight. Besides those two, it could be anyone. Unfortunately, a lot of the good fighters near my weight are tied up in ongoing tournaments. Nonetheless, I'm sure I am beating whoever they book me against."
