Patricio ‘Pitbull’ Freire Upset Over Bellator’s Booking of Straus vs. Curran III
Posted by Larry Csonka on 01.14.2014



- Patricio ‘Pitbull' Freire thought he was getting a featherweight title shot after he defeated Diego Nunes, Fabricio Guerreiro and Justin Wilcox to claim his second tourney win and title shot. But then Bellator booked Straus vs. Curran III, and Pitbull was left on the outside looking in. Pitbull recently spoke with mmajunkie.com about the situation. Here are the highlights…

On The Booking of Straus vs. Curran III: "I'm very disappointed with the whole situation. I'm very upset with the organization. I've knocked out three of my past four opponents. I lost to Curran in a split decision, so I felt like I deserved to get back in there and have another shot at him. Instead, I had to go back to normal fights and the tournament, but I knocked out three of my next four opponents and feel like I've done enough again to get the shot now."

On When He Will Get A Title Fight: "They said I would be fighting the winner of Straus vs. Curran III, but I question why that fight has to happen first," Freire said. "I told them I should get the shot, and then they just said that's the direction the company is going and for me to just keep doing what I'm doing. Nothing they do right now is going to make right what they have done to me."

On Being Upset: "Ever since I started training, I never stopped unless I was seriously injured," Freire said. "Nothing is going to keep me out of the gym, but I'm really upset at this decision. Still, I'm going to keep on doing what I'm doing and prove I'm the best featherweight in the world. I'm upset at the whole thing not going the way I thought I was going. I've got faith to keep training and keep doing what I'm doing, and hopefully everything will work out. But if Bellator doesn't believe in me – if they don't want me to be champion and to do things right – I'd like to just ask them to let me out of my contract."
