We saw Kimbo Slice and Ken Shamrock do that thing that old men do when you put them in the cage (i.e., look awful), and we saw a champ named Joanna Jędrzejczyk defend her belt in brutal and one-sided fashion. This weekend had a lot of action for MMA fans, both in the Bellator and UFC cage – but what was the best fight of them all?
Without question it was Bellator featherweight champ Patricio “Pitbull” Freire and challenger Daniel Weichel.
The two men scrapped hard throughout the first round, but in the waning seconds of the frame, Weichel nailed Pitbull against the cage and stunned him. A sudden flurry had the Brazilian gradually sinking to the canvas, and then time ran out. The champ was literally saved by the bell.
Then this happened. Oh man, the drama.
