At last night’s Bellator 41 Patricio “Pitbull” Freire moved into the finals by improving his record against Wilson Reis to 2-0 with his third round KO. In their first bout at Bellator 18 Freire won a unanimous decision but last night he one upped himself with a devastating flurry of punches that finished the fight.
The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt now moves onto the Bellator Featherweight Finals where he will face Daniel Straus with the winner earning a title shot against Joe Warren. Straus opened the televised portion of the night by defeated Kenny Foster in his semifinal bout with a third round guillotine.
Freire and Straus will meet in the finals at a later date to be determined.
