During a recent press conference for Bellator MMA several fighters were involved in altercation, including James Gallagher and the “Pitbull” brothers.
The “Pitbull” brothers, Patricio and Patricky Freire, were involved in an incident at the press conference with some fighters from the SBG Ireland gym, including James Gallagher, Pedro Carvalho and Peter Queally. The situation escalated and the security were forced to step in between the two groups before things turned physical. Part of the incident was caught on camera and you can watch it below:
Patricio Freire is scheduled to fight SBG Ireland’s Pedro Carvalho at Bellator 241 this Friday. His brother, Patricky Freire is also expected to face Peter Queally at Bellator Dublin this October.
The two gym appear to have a clear rivalry going on, with Peter Queally and Patricky Freire speaking to MMA Fighting about their upcoming bout after it was announced. Queally promised the fans “cartoon level violence that’s inevitable,” and Freire said that he is “a guy who deserves a big beating,”.
His brother, Patricio Freire also commented on the situation, throwing shade at the whole SBG Ireland gym, saying that he will “straight blast you harder than a dolly through a bus glass window.”
The comment from Freire is in reference to the incident involving Conor McGregor and his teammates from SBG Ireland, who attacked a bus full of UFC fighters in an attempt to get a hold of the UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 223 media day.
