For the second time this year, Patricky “Pitbull” Freire bested a former lightweight champion, earning a split decision vs. Benson Henderson at Bellator 183.

Freire, who finished Josh Thomson earlier this year, made it known that he wants Bellator titleholder Brent Primus next.

“I want the champion. I want Brent Primus,” Freire said. “I took down another former champion and I want my shot at that belt.

“Benson Henderson is a good, tough fighter, but I’ve got my mind on the division title now. You can’t keep running Primus.”

Freire is trying to join his brother, Patricio “Pitbull” Friere, as Bellator champions.
