Patricio Freire remains the simultaneous double champion of Bellator.
In the co-star of the Bellator 228, ‘Pitbull’ more than defended his 145-pound belt for the third time and made him know the defeat of the Spaniard Juan Archuleta for the first time in more than four years.

Throughout the five rounds, the Brazilian always looked more precise and never struggled before an Archuleta who sinned because of his inaccuracy.
With his victory by the unanimous ruling, Freire, also a monarch of the 155 pounds, advances to the quarterfinals of the Grand Prix of the Featherweight that will give the winner 1 million dollars.
The ‘Pitbull’ also achieved his fifth victory in a row and improved his record with the promotion to 18 – 4.
