Earlier this month, Freire and Chandler culminated their longstanding feud at Bellator 221, with “Pitbull” needing just 61 seconds to knock out Chandler to win the lightweight title and become a Bellator champ-champ.
Ever since, Chandler has disputed the stoppage by the referee, believing he stepped in too soon. Freire, on the other hand, believes there’s no doubt about the finish.
On Saturday, Freire took to Twitter to gloat about his win. He shared video of the fight’s conclusion, along with a pre-fight quote from Chandler in which he boasts of being better than “Pitbull” all around. Freire also included Chandler’s Twitter handle to make sure he’d see it.
“I’m faster than you, and bigger than you, and more powerful than you. And every single aspect that you think you’re good, in this sport, I’m superior.” @MikeChandlerMMA
If it was a reaction from Chandler that Freire was looking for, he got it. But he was also prepared.
“Don’t say my name unless you take the rematch…,” Chandler said.
To which Freire replied: “I do whatever the (expletive) I want. How did those tears taste?”
Freire this week told MMA Junkie that he’s keeping his options open. A Chandler rematch is possible, but Friere also is considering a defense of his featherweight title vs. undefeated A.J. McKee. Freire has even entertained the idea of trying to become a simultaneous three-division champion with a drop down to bantamweight.
