Patricio Freire out with broken hand; fight rescheduled for Fall

Quote:
A broken hand has forced Patricio "Pitbull" Freire (17-1 MMA, 5-1 BFC) to withdraw from a planned fight with Bellator Fighting Championships featherweight champion Joe Warren (7-1 MMA, 5-0 BFC).

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed the injury with Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney, who said the fight will likely be re-booked following Warren's participation on the promotion's upcoming season-five bantamweight tourney.

Freire and Warren had been expected to meet at Bellator 47, which takes place on July 23 at Casino Rama in Rama, Ontario, Canada.

Bellator 47, which airs on MTV2 as part of Bellator's "Summer Series" events, will still feature the semifinals of Bellator's current featherweight tournament.

Warren was looking to defend the 145-pound belt for the first time since defeating Joe Soto in September 2010 to take the crown. The former Greco-Roman wrestling world champion most recently saw action in a 137-pound catchweight win over Marcos Galvao this past April.

Warren is now expected to return on Sept. 24 for an opening-round tournament bout at Bellator 51, as he bids for a title in the 135-pound division, as well.

Meanwhile, Freire was looking to avenge the lone loss of his career. The Brazilian youngster was a finalist in Bellator's season-two featherweight tournament, where he ultimately lost a hard-fought split decision to Warren. Freire the returned to the promotion and earned the season-four tournament title.

An exact timeline for Freire's return to action has yet to be established.


This was one of my top 5 most anticipated fights for this Summer of epic MMA action.

Damn man ... sucks. Not a big fan of Warren, wanted to see him get tested and destroyed.

On another note - I had no idea that Warren was fighting ALEXIS VILA in the quarters of the BM tourney! Should be a SICK grappling war between the 2, but Vila has decent hands and is much more explosive IMO and could get the early TKO.

For those of you that don't know: Vila is
> 9-0 [8 finishes (6T/KO)]
> 2 x Freestlye Wrestling World Champion
> 1 x Runner-up @ world championships
> Bronze Medal at '96 Olympics

This cat has BETTER WRESTLING CREDENTIALS THAN JOE WARREN (who is a 1 x world champ in '06 - in Greco). Warren's wrestling hasn't translated too well into MMA and I don't see him getting this fight to the ground - Vila is gonna finish him.

Sorry for the thread hijacking, just got real excited lol VILA IS A BEAST!

Thx, didn't know that either. So we will have a bantam beating the FW champion, a bit odd.........! However, will it make any diff that Vila competed in the early-mid 90s and at 48 kgs?

Very disappointed Pitbull is out of this fight. Yet again injuries strike the MMA world

His wrestling is still top-notch, and his technique hasn't gone anywhere - it's in his blood lol. And considering the performance Warren put on in his last fight wrestling-wise (got reversed and mounted a number of times in the first round) - I see Vila destroying him.

He won a whole tournament and just before his title shot he got a serious injury like that, if that's not bad luck i don't know what is. Hope he heals within a month or two and gets back in the gym quickly, it's going to be a sick fight.
