Patricio Pitbull gave it his all and achieved what he set out to. As reported by our collaborator Junior Samurai, the hard-hitter laid it on Daniel Straus yesterday, dominating all three rounds of the Bellator featherweight GP final. Now the Jiu-Jitsu black belt will get a shot at the divisional belt and a chance for revenge for revenge to boot, as he will face Joe Warren, the man responsible for the lone blemish on the Brazilian’s record.
Bellator 45 was held in Louisiana, USA, and further crowned Christian M’Pumbo, who used his boxing skills to drop Richard Hale to the canvas, where he followed up with another four bombs take his post as light heavyweight GP champion.
