Last night saw the return of Bellator’s ‘Champ, Champ’. Patricio ‘Pitbull’ Freire owns both the Lightweight and Featherweight titles. At Bellator 252, Pitbull would defend his Festherweight title against SBG member, Pedro Carvalho.
Also on the card was top prospect, Aaron Pico. Bob Cook, credited for much of the success of Daniel Cormier’s career, once said that Pico was the next kid who’d become something special. According to reports, the UFC were once upset that they weren’t giving the opportunity to sign Pico. This was due to the UFC not having a developmental programme at the time, which they now do.
