With the Bellator Fighting Championships scheduled to begin its second season of tournaments on April 8, a great deal of focus has been put on its upcoming welterweight tournament.

To date, upstart Bellator has garnered good press for its 170 lbs. division with former Sengoku standout Dan Hornbuckle, 2008 U.S. Olympian Ben Askren, 6-0 blue chip prospect Jacob McClintock, British star Jim Wallhead, and 10-1 M-1 Challenge veteran Steve Carl all having enlisted for the eight-man tournament.

According to a report on InTheGuard.tv, Bellator is currently pursuing 12-0 “Brazilian phenom” Patricio “Pitbull” Freire for its 145 lbs. tournament that is set to begin on April 8.

Big props to Bellator for sure here. I haven't seen any of his fights personally, but I've heard several heads rave about this guy.
