"It sounds normal to me because a fighter can get injured during a camp," Freire told MMAFighting.com. "I also got hurt a few times. I think Pat Curran did the right thing if he doesn’t feel 100 percent for the fight, but it pisses me off because it’s the third time he postponed a fight with me."
"Pitbull", who went 4-0 after a split decision loss to Curran in 2013, is also not convinced the champion really had to postpone his fight.
"If you ask if I suspect (he’s really hurt), of course I do," he said. "Come on, really? Calf injury? I don’t know if it’s a serious injury, but he decided to pull out. I hope he comes back 100 percent so he doesn’t have excuses after he fights me."
"I rather wait for Pat Curran," he said. "This fight was postponed several times and I would have to wait longer to fight him if they created an interim title. It’s going to taste better to win the title in a rematch against Curran. That’s the fight I want.
"They told me they want to do this fight in July, but it’s not a done deal yet," he continued. "It might be at the end of the month, but we have to wait for Curran."
