Bellator 203: Pitbull vs Weichel 2 takes place this Saturday night, July 14, from Forco Italico in Rome, Italy and the main event is one not to miss. Featherweight champion Patricio “Pitbull” Freire (26-4) will be taking on Daniel Weichel (39-9) for a second time in a rematch that will surely settle some kind of score.
All one has to do is take a look back and their first fight to get a sense of how much drama was in the air as they squared off in St. Louis, Missouri in June of 2015. Weichel was filling in for an injured Georgi Karakhanyan and fought very well in the first round. I rewatched the fight earlier tonight and was impressed by how much skill was on display from each man.
