Patricio Pitbull: Chandler Re-Signed To Avoid USADA
Patricio Freire is happy that Michael Chandler has signed a new multi-fight deal with Bellator, but the featherweight champion feels like there is a reason outside of wanting regain the Bellator lightweight title.
“I’ve already said it before in interviews and tweeted about it: Chandler wasn’t going anywhere near USADA,” Freire told MMAjunkie. “He was just talking about the UFC as negotiation tactics. That guy is one of the biggest PED users in the sport.”
Freire has seen his older brother lose twice to Chandler inside the Bellator cage, and hopes that with this new deal his brother Patricky can get his rematch.
“I think it’s a good thing he stayed,” Freire said. “That way my brother can avenge his loss, and I can beat him up, too.”
