The main event of Saturday’s Bellator 183 will be a key matchup in the lightweight division between former title challengers as Patricky “Pitbull” Freire looks to make his case for another shot at the title when he meets Benson Henderson.
Pitbull (17-8) is coming off a knockout win against Josh Thomson in February at Bellator 172 and he’s 3-1 in his last four fights. Two of those three wins have come by knockout and he has the most TKO/KO wins in Bellator lightweight division history.
During this week’s episode of “The MMA Report Podcast,” Pitbull was a guest on the podcast to preview his fight against Henderson. Along with discussing his fight on Saturday night, he talked about training with Henry Cejudo and the aftermath of the victory over Thomson.
