Twitter reacts to Patricky Pitbull becoming the new Bellator lightweight champion

Patricky Pitbull is the new Bellator lightweight champion after Bellator 270.

Patricky “Pitbull” Freire is the new Bellator lightweight champion for the first time in his career after he defeated Peter Queally in the main event of Bellator 270. The event was held in Ireland and saw two of their biggest stars in Queally and James Gallagher losing to non-Irish stars. None was more heartbreaking for the Irish crowd than Queally getting TKO’ed by Pitbull

Queally came out to the Cranberries hit song “Zombie” and had the crowd singing along in unison in what may have been one of, if not the greatest, walk out in Bellator history. The crowd was so energetic and so loud that no one could really hear ring announcer Michael C. Williams.

The fight may not have delivered like many had hoped, with a relatively fine first round but a rather bumpy second. After the start of the second round, Pitbull got poked in the eye and the doctor needed almost all of the five-minute period to make sure Pitbull could see again.

Mere seconds later, Pitbull walked Queally down with an avalanche of strikes, getting him backed into the cage where the referee ended the fight.

This obviously split some fans, while others were beyond excited.

Some were just shocked at how it all transpired.

 

Others were just happy to be able to dunk on the Irish fans.

 

While some were respectful.

 

Not everyone was happy with the stoppage, however.
