Patricky ‘Pitbull’ Freire vs. Derek Campos 2 set to headline Bellator 181

Patricky ‘Pitbull’ Freire will returning to the Bellator cage later this summer.

The Brazilian lightweight will be facing Derek Campos in a rematch in the main event of Bellator 181, which is set to take place on July 14 at the WinStar World Casino and Resort in Thackerville, Okla. The news was announced by the Bellator on Wednesday.

Freire will be looking to build off his impressive knockout win over Josh Thomson last February in the main event of Bellator 172. The 31-year-old fighter is currently 3-1 in his last four outings with his lone loss coming to Michael Chandler.

Meanwhile, Campos will be attempting to avenge his Bellator 117 technical knockout loss to Freire while improving his win streak to four in a row. The lightweight fighter was last seen in competition back in January when he outpointed Derek Anderson.
