2019-09-28, some good exchanges between Patricio Freire and Juan Archuleta
but it is not enough to get three stars: it gets two.
The black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, current Bellator Fw and Lw champion Patricio Freire entered this fight with a professional mma record of 29-4-0 (72% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.5 featherweight in the world (currently the #1 in this division is Max Holloway). Patricio ‘Pitbull’ lost to Benson Henderson in 2016 (Henderson vs Freire) but then he has won four bouts defeating Emmanuel Sanchez (Patricio Freire vs Emmanuel Sanchez) and Michael Chandler in his last two (Michael Chandler vs Patricio Freire).
His opponent, Juan Archuleta, has an official record of 23-1-0 (52% finishing rate) and he entered as the No.40 in the same weight class. He suffered his only loss when he faced Andres Ponce in 2015, since then he has won 18 consecutive bouts defeating Ricky Bandejas and Eduardo Dantas in 2019. Pitbull Freire vs Archuleta, main event of Bellator 228, is valid for the Bellator featherweight title (Freire’s third defense). Watch the video and rate this fight!
