There was no stopping the Bellator Featherweight champion at Bellator 255.
Patricio Pitbull Freire put on a marvellous display against Emmanuel Sanchez in the Bellator Featherweight World Grand Prix Semifinal at Bellator 255.
There was no stopping the Bellator GOAT, right from the word go, as a huge left hand knocked down Emmanuel Sanchez early into round 1. Patricio was quick to pounce on Sanchez, going for a guillotine and thereby earning a first-round submission victory.
Then there were 2!
With that win, just one man stands between him and the 1 million USD cash prize and a successful title defense – AJ McKee. McKee is still undefeated in his professional MMA career. He has a record of 17 wins and 0 losses, with all his wins coming in Bellator.
Things got heated after Pitbull’s victory as there was an intense stare down between Patricio and McKee, with heated words exchanged. Can Pitbull stop the high-riding AJ McKee?
